    Sure theres always some random comp that you can sometimes find on ebay or Amazon who might have the price a bit lower, but good luck on getting the latest design (I believe they just did a change to the arms) or if the UCAs are defective being able to return them. I bet you this ebay comp is not even an authorized dealer either, most of them aren't and is why they always violate pricing guidelines set by the manufacturer and thus the manufacturer will do nothing to help them out as far as replacements go.

    Don't get me wrong amazon and ebay can save you some serious $$, but sometimes its just not worth it.

    "These arms feature our NEW SpecRide(tm) Bushings
    SpecRide(tm) Proprietary Bushings Feature:
    * Free moving pivot sleeve which eliminates failures caused by high travel suspensions
    * Noise and vibration control
    * Ozone, oil and alkaline resistant material"


    Will update when product is received. I made sure it had the style bushing. I beleive they changed the arms back in 13

    I ordered a few days ago and expect mine to arrive at the start of this week. Sweet deal from a reputable vendor for sure.

    Most times it's the exact same thing for less money. In this case had I not ordered them from Headstrong already I would likely go through the eBay seller and save $14 just like I went through Headstrong instead of another vendor to save $15 or whatever the price difference was. If the eBay seller has good reputation then their word is just as good (if not better) than a lot of vendors who charge more for the same parts. I realize there are horror stories from eBay but if you do your part as a buyer you minimize this substantially. To be fair, I've had a couple of bad experiences over the years from well-known vendors too so it goes both ways.

    This seller has over 100,000 feedback at 99.7% positive so I'd say they've got a good track record and it sounds like they have the latest version. This seems like a pretty good score for those looking.

    The bushings changed a long time ago (years), the bend of the arms just recently changed per SPC, they literally look different now. If you got the old design and wanted the new design perhaps you can call the ebay seller you bought from. Problem is most of the time they don't have a contact number listed and even if they did they most likely don't buy direct which means they could not switch out for the new design.

    Honestly the best thing to do is to talk to SPC to see if these guys are even legit, this is what I do now if buying from Amazon or ebay (its a pain though). I'd bet SPC has no clue who these people are and they are probably in violation of MAP like almost all the sellers on ebay and amazon are. This might not mean much to you if nothing goes wrong, but the minute you have an issue good luck talking to the manufacturer after they ask you who you bought from.

    Please don't be that guy trying to make us think everyone on eBay is out to get them & there are no good sellers or legitimate deals to be had.

    Oh not at all, I buy from Amazon and ebay all the time (more Amazon). I've just had a couple bad experiences from them and have learned a couple things. I almost always start with Amazon for low prices and than call comps I like to see if they can match or beat the price. If a comp I like can't match or beat it I'll research if the amazon/ebay comp is just an ebay/amazon comp or an actual company that has a store outside ebay/amazon (e.i. Downsouth Motorsports).

    Shoot saving money is what its all about, it makes no sense to pay more when you don't have to.

    I actually bought used SPC uca from craigslist. They had the old style bushing and couldn't figure out why they didn't fit. Called SPC and told them what happen. They helped me out a lot. Even though I didn't buy it from them directly. Missing the inner washers that wasn't given to me when I purchased them.
