    How much are the stainless uniballs? And if I don't swap out (and just apply the lube from here on out) what will happen to my UCAs?

    awesome pic btw

    damn $120+ on uniballs after already spending $600+ on the UCAs originally? What a rip! If you find a more reasonable solution, let me know please. Thanks

    CRC, Sprayon, and LPS dry moly have all worked very well for me.

    I use Triflow on my Camburgs and it's great. Holds up well here in the wet PNW!

    Tri flow or any dry lube. PB Blaster and WD40 have their version of dry lube.

    btw REI sells tri flow

    So this thread is super old, but how often are you supposed to apply the tri flow to the uniball, also how often are you supposed to replace the lube in the bushings?

    Good question. I personally don't know and have not been able to find any data out there about this. I lube mine once weekly. Figure it can't hurt...
