    So I'm trying to decide which Upper control arms to pick. I know theres a ton of threads but I wanted to see what people have /recommend. Also if people could tell me what the differences between some of the brands are that would be awesome.

    I have light racing uca, and will suggest with no hesitation, bought mine a year and a half ago, and the place i bought them from had old stock, thus being old design. I was having issuses and no questions asked i got new ball joints in the mail. Customer service awesome!

    When I was mid travel I went thru a set of Camburgs due to a uniball cup being too big and the uniball assembly wiggled I went to BRs. Never had an issue, no squeeks like a number of other have seen with other manufacturers.
    Recently went Long travel BR and work very well.

    This vid was recent and just before going LT:

    :( nobody ever seems to put the attractively priced, high quality DSM boxed chromoly UCAs with the Stainless uniball on these polls.

    It depends on what you use your truck for I'm mostly a daily driver but I like the look of the lifted Tacoma so I went with LR. Been a year so far no problems and spot on alignment and they also look pretty good under your wheel well. I'm running Icons Ext. travel on 33s with them and they work great. Good Luck.
