Default Megan Uca's for stock setup?

Hi guys I need Uca's with balljoints for my 400 and would much rather buy these Megans instead of Dorman and those other brands, plus I believe if a balljoint is going bad on one of these Megan's it can be separately replaced correct? Can I put these on my stock setup? Please tell me I can run these and be good for years...

I wouldn't exactly trust Megan as a quality piece. Also, are you even sure you can buy a replacement ball joint? Get the SPC upper arms, they cost the same as the Megan arms. The replacement parts can be ordered from SPC, and they can adjust both camber and caster.

Who said the ball joints are crappy? I've used them for years with no issues. The parts are all replaceable and you can order direct from SPC. With Megan, you will probably be out of luck if you're trying to look for replacement parts.

Here is their latest design. Has much more beefy tubular frame construction.

I thought you decided to go with the Dorman...? Anyway, the SPC UCA's that you posted are the older design. The version being sold by FIGS looks completely different.

I was gonna go with Dorman but figured why not get a
MUCH better designed uca and you can change out individual parts like the ball joints in those SPC, it's a win win... Thank u for the link
