    Okay so after lurking here and researching, I've decided I'm gonna get new UCA's.

    I got an OME lift I'm installing Sunday/Monday, and I will take it in to get aligned, but if I feel any difference in my steering through town, or on the highway I am immediately going to order some new UCA's.

    The problem I'm having is understanding why they are so damn expensive, and finding a good reliable brand, at a decent price.

    Pretty much I'm looking for some firsthand experience from you all. Help?

    is it still open? I saw that after posting this thread. 375 is a good price from everything else I've looked at.

    So worth it. I love my LR's and alignment is a breeze and always well within spec.

    ok so I can get some for 375 shipped still?! I'm getting in on that forsure. I guess I'll just deal with floaty steering till I can get those. It'll make me appreciate em more so the 375 out of my bank account won't hurt so bad : )

    If you dont feel like waiting, you can call Fat Bob's garage. Their price is basically the same, plus shipping.

    EDIT: What horwitzs said.
