Ding, ding, ding. High five to ya!

then now i think whats the issue from the srt from my friend, he have install this jba upper arms.....and today we speak about this and he say my this are great shit, the upper arms touch the "engine room", you have write :

The shock tower will interfere. Any lower will require a custom drop-spindle

ti think we mean the same...rigth?

my friend have the H&R srt springs and this are 1.3 drop.

are this the problem and he need this custom spindle??

thx for feedback.
If you have the JBA UCAs on and are experiencing interference with the underside of the shock tower, it may be because you have 90 degree grease fittings on the ball joint. If you have those, you must replace them with straight grease fittings, which will gain you some extra clearance.

Re: CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

Mine came with a flat needle grease fitting, only about a 1/8" high overall

Kinda like a plug with a little spring ball in the center

Well I tried to grease it with a needle and that didn't work well, they should just include a regular one to grease and a plug to just cap it with.

The other thing is they didn't include enough washers to install the coder pin in the ball joint, had to make a run to solve that

Those are my only to complaints which are minor issues at best

So far I have had zero bottoming and have hit some decent sized dips and pot holes

I also had to go get some extra washers, but my A-arm was the prototype so that was the cost of developing the product. I found a mini-grease gun has plenty of room to get at the straight fitting.

Glad the UCA is working well for you. I have had zero issues with mine.

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I needed to use washers as well with my install. I second the mini grease gun for getting at the straight fittings.
