    Newb here again and I’ve got questions!! And i hope you have answers.. or opinions at least lol!! Wondering what the advantages Icons delta joint offers over the SPC?? It’s about 170$ difference. I understand that the SPC’s can be adjusted to slightly move wheels forward in the wells to possibly allow a slightly larger wheel which might be a good sell point but is it actually feasible?? . I don’t know if the icons can be adjusted just basically maintenance free?? Any way lemme know.. pros and cons?? Are the icons worth the dough??

    Thanks in advance

    Anyone care to give feed black on the SPCs?? I’m leaning that way to save a few clams

    It is absolutely feasible to get enough Caster from your UCAs to fit larger tires. If you're looking to do that and not have to relocate your cab mount, I'd make sure you make sure whatever uppers you get allow increased positive caster. JBA and SPC are both excellent at this, and reasonably priced.

    SPC's are a top choice for a basic flexible UCA upgrade. price, adjustability, reliability, and low maintenance. can't go wrong with those unless you have special OR needs or something.

    The new forged arms have been great. Zero failures on the ones we have installed in our shop. Even the new ball joint is way better. I suggest SPC unless we are installing a full ICON kit.

    Went with the Icon delta joints and they are very nice...
    Besides the great construction the ball joint is a high angle joint that is the best cross of a standard ball joint and a uniball..
    So greater range but sealed like a ball joint...
    Hear nothing but good about the SPC's but thought I'd throw my 2 cents on the Icons.

    I have had spcs for about the last 6 months, i'll be taking them off this spring and installing icon delta joints. They aren't great for serious off roading. I fight with mine all the time. Another thing to consider is that most alignment shops don't know shit about them, so it's always a challenge to get them aligned anywhere away from a good pro shop. Im on alignment number 5 in 6 months.
