    what do you think? both are about the same $$.

    or should i just do the uniball stuff? i did put some uniball equipment on another car. the added noise was a jagged pill to swallow.

    no hard core wheeling. just using the truck to get me back into some very remote places.

    I would get the light racing over the camburg uca's that utilize the stock joints, but would definitely get tc over all.

    Pretty much stock
    Blue loc-tite + 120 ft lbs = no issues to date with mine, i've never heard of anyone having issues with them getting out of alignment.

    Plus you can't beat 400 dollars shipped to the door!

    I think they're both great quality... the only thing that's gonna break on either brand is the balljoint and that ain't likely with your offroad expectations anyway.

    I chose the Camburg b/j UCAs because it came down to :1. they look way cooler than the LRs IMO, and 2. I saved about $70 by reusing my stock b/js. Plus they are in the same family as my other suspension components; Camburg=SwayAway.

    Either is a fine product, if you're having a shop install them the price is the same in the end.

    For the average to pretty hard offroader/daily driver I suggest NOT to go uniball. The Uniball is the strongest most badass UCA design but they are overkill for most of us and require some maintenance whereas a balljoint doesn't need maint.
