UCA/ ball joints
 
Been using a RC lift for two years now and have always been a lil concerned about the new angle and stress on the ball joint from the spacer. My driver's side ball joint has a lot of play/ clunk in it as if it could go at any time. The passenger's side is feeling worn but still pretty tight. I have 111k on the odometer and these joints are original. Sooooooooooo should I just get replacements or splurge on new UCA's from Jeepinbyal? If replacements are gonna wear quickly then I'll eventually have spent what the UCA's would initially cost. Other than dirt access roads I don't do much off pavement (not as much as I'd like atleast) so the truck doesn't take a ton of abuse.

Thanks, Drew

Well, it's $450 vs. at least $50 (at Rockauto). If the originals have lasted this long it might not hurt to just change them out. The angle of the lift may have sped up the wear on them though. If you think you may get a little more hard core with wheeling then go ahead and upgrade. You know how Jeeping is, you always want more upgrades. :o
