The wife just gave me the ok to purchase new UCA's. What the best place to get them. I was leaning towards the TC UCA's.

$599, about same as what he was selling tc arms for. Difference is heims on threaded bungs that make them adjustable, but greg presets them when they ship so you don't need to worry about that. Probably lots of friendly discussion of heims vs. zirkable urethane bushings on this site so I won't go there, haha. I had these on my fronty (before my titan swap) and my alignment was still within spec with a 3" lift. My eccentrics were all lined up at 12 o'clock. He makes some awesome shit. Now with my titan prg ucas, my eccentrics are still at 12 o'clock.

Which one do you guys feel is better? Whats the up keep like?
Total Chaos - uses reg bushings (zirk-type, I believe) which are easier and cheaper to replace if they or the UCA as a whole go bad

PRG - uses Heim joints, which if they go bad you have to replace the whole UCA, but have less chance of going bad, IMO, because of the quality and tighter fit than a reg bushing. I have the PRG UCA's and so far so GREAT!

Will this UCA or TC UCA eliminate the UCA contact problem with spacer lifts?
It doesnt eliminate contact from what I've seen, but it greatly reduces it. When it does contact, it meets the built in bumpstop on the new UCA so that you don't hear the clank you hear with stock arms.

No need to replace the whole UCA (yikes!). If you look closely you will see that the heim joint stud is threaded. It screws into the control arm tubeing and is secured with a jam nut. If the heim goes bad you can unscrew it and replace it.

If you are getting uca's because of cb contact, why not just get radflos from Greg at PRG. It has internal droop stops to prevent contact and cost a little more that the uca but worth it imo. then ditch the swaybar too.

If you already have good coilovers, then yeah, get the PRG ucas.
