    well I finally hired a manager and have been training him for a while now. Very soon my brother and I will take every other week off. When I am not there then my brother will be there and vice versa.

    Our arms are more expensive because they are machined out of a solid piece of aluminum and are not a welded tube design. Besides offering a sealed dust cap to keep dirt out of the uniball they also offer on truck adjustability to gain caster or camber. We also use rod ends to eliminate squeaking from urethane bushings.
    For a tube style arm I would definitely recommend the Total Chaos arms.

    I might be calling you guys shortly, my new TC heim joint uca's are not correcting my alignment issues like TC said they should. My shop has had my truck for 3 days trying to make adjustments and re-align it with no success. They have also spoke with the owner and the engineer over at Total Chaos to try and help out with the problem. Granted, Total Chaos service has been excellent so far. They even worked with my shop on Friday when TC is normally closed and one of the owners gave their cell phone # to me and the owner of my shop doing the work. Very impressive service so far. I am supposed to get my truck back this afternoon and it is supposed to be aligned properly. The only bad thing is the front is sitting 3/4 inch lower than the rear, which is what TC recommended as a starting point to try and fix the alignment. I will update later when I get it back. Lifting is fustrating sometimes.

    If you want adjustable arms, go with Icon's. Total Chaos heims are a pain in the ass to adjust.

    The billet aluminum arms are the strongest you're going to find. If you break those, odds are that will be the least of your concerns as you will have most likely torn apart lots of other stuff before damaging those UCAs.

    I would say the ICON arms are the best and not because they cost the most.

    Total chaos are good, but performance wise, they are not as good as camburg. Camburg has a 1.25" uniball which allows aditional travel over total chaos, as well as strength.

    nice, i have camburg UCA's too and i'm very happy w/ them. make sure to keep the uniball clean (it gets dirty very easily) and only lubricated the uni ball w/ a non petrolium based lube. tri flow and militec are good choices.
