No issues with SPCs and wheeling for me. I bought mine several years ago, they are the older tube type, and have hammered them plenty. I grease them every 3-4 runs. Upgrading from bump stops helps reduce stress on the front suspension considerably, too.

Yes, they are now a cast design for the arms.

Alright boys the new arms are in and I'm happy to report that my shop was easily able to get the caster to 2.7 / 2.8.

So far as far as I can tell the clunking noise is now gone, however I think the rumble is still there so I'm still leaning towards the rumble being the bearings potentially.

I'll post a picture of the alignment detail when I get home from work. (Forgot to snag a photo of it yesterday)

Position? Are you talking about the SPC arms? I was talking about the jBA Arms. Which speaking of, I forgot to post the alignment specs. I'll try to remember to do that tonight

I just picked up a set of the Freedom Offroad UCAs. A friend has them in his tacoma for over 50k and he has nothing bad to say about them. Going to install them in the next couple of weeks, I'll let ya'll know how they are.

All they do is change the angle of the UBJ
