    Yea I'm extremely please with the JBAs, especially knowing they are ceracoated now, the raw steel seemed to be the only "Con" of those UCAs and now that they are ceracoated clear they are perfect IMO

    When did the cerecoat start? I feel I may of been too early since I think I already see the start of some rust on one of my ball joints. Oh well, it’s my own fault really. I didn’t spray them down with fluid film right when I got them.

    Wonder how well the cerekote holds up compared to other popular coatings.

    It was my suggestion to him has to be better then the powder he said he did a few test and it sticks ten time better then the powder because it’s deskgned to be sprayed over a shiny surface

    I get how cerkote works I have a few firearms coated. I am talking about long term holding up to rock chips and stuff like that it will be interesting to see the results. I was wondering when cerekote and others like that would eventually catch on in the automotive industry.

    Has any one used JBA's with stock wheels with 285/75 tires?? Or do all of you have aftermarket wheels?

    285s on stock wheels will even rub the OEM UCAs. You'll have to run wheel spacers to clear those.

    Nice, I think I saw where this was mentioned. I'll probably buy some replacements soon.

    I have 265/75 16's now and it doesn't rub my Stock UCA's.. But was going to go with new JBA's when I'm due. So I should be good?

    Yeah, on 265s you should be good. You mentioned 285s in your previous post which is a different animal.

    will the stock wheels on 255/85/16 clear the JBA's with a 1" wheel spacer?

    Hope you’re gonna be getting new wheels or spacers too. Jba arms poke out even further than oem due to the balljoint design.

    You think they’d be okay with TRD Pro wheels and 285’s?
