Chromoly UCA's

Figure i would post information on my costume set of chromoly upper control arms with spherical uni-ball and a grade 8 pin.
This was a must for my one off lift, i kept tearing my upper ball joins (8 to be exact) when i was experimenting with lifts.
I came across a guy with a heavy modded XK that had the same issue i had so he decided to have some custom built, first attempt was total chaos fabrication which rejected the project ( i think it's because they favor the yotas!) he came across HR engineering suspension which agreed to build a few, Getlost4x4.com was chossen to be the vendor.
So far i have wheeled with them and have had them for about a year or so and have held up to my abuse! here are a few pictures of the UCA's.

Re: Chromoly UCA's

Robpp, the ride is much better since everything is heavy duty, the pot holes feel like cracks on the road! LOL

Marlin, the first picture is the prototype vehicle, my WK is on the bottom.

Re: Chromoly UCA's

Nice to know that they've held up well since I have yet to install mine, lol. Got them with the group buy but figured I'd wait until I got my lift to install everything. Should have my OME on by the end of the month. Wasn't sure what to do with tires. Since rims are beyond my current budget I was thinking of going with the Hankook MT's since I can stud them in the winter and the price is reasonable. Seems that everyone who uses them likes them, the only people who hate them are people who haven't used them.

Re: Chromoly UCA's

Those are sexy. The stock ones look so weak.

Re: Chromoly UCA's

Acid, I was f...ing around and got stuck in the snow. My drivers side UCA has a slight crack and I am taking chances driving. I was looking to upgrade and not just replace. When I go to getlost4x4.com I just seem to find a forum, where can I order these on the site and are they still being made?

Re: Chromoly UCA's

i believe when i looked into these after the post. it was determined that they were only made for the original few people.

There is one guy that has a set available but for the life of me i can't get him to sell them to a Navy guy on another forum! lol
I am waiting on a E-mail to get the builders to do a small run for those who are truly interested meaning money up front. you would be looking at $700 or so. I will update you with any info i get.
