Not my pic or actual pic. Just a pic I found online for illustration purposes. I'll take a pic of my rig later.

Either rotate the clamp and tighten it where it won't make contact with anything (probably facing front or rear), or use a thinner OEM type clamp.

Ok upon further inspection, it seems that the LCA that were sent to me are SLIGHTLY different than my stock LCAs.

My stock LCA is stamped with "L7" and "R7" right where the lower ball joint attaches to the LCA.

The new Superpro ones are stamped with "L6" and "R6" and upon comparing them closely, the raised section where the lower ball joint attaches is taller on my OEM one compared to the Superpro one. I'll post pics later.

Good thing my old LCA wasnt frozen and I didn't cut it off. I'll just have to reinstall it and reachout to Superpro.

yeh, i was going to install the OEM clamps as I have a set laying around. However, I think it will still be close as there is still a "hump" protruding from the OEM clamp. Also, at full droop, the boot gets AWFUL close to the LCA.

Also, my previous post about the LCA differences concern me (R6,L6 vs R7,L7).

One of my mevotech cheapies from rock auto already tore a boot. They work fine, and have a lifetime warranty, but rockauto won't just send a new boot! They said send the whole thing back and they'll give me a new one. Crazy, right? I chose to just spend $6 on a replacement boot and I'll eventually get it on there. Technically, they say no guarantee on lifted or modified vehicles so no worries.

Mine have been great, no issues on or offroad. The Poly bushing are also quiet, no squeeking.

Yep, I shipped back the LCA and just rebuilt my OEM ones with new OEM bushings and a balljoint kit.

Cool thanks for the update! We’re you able to figure out what was wrong, did they just sent you the wrong ones? Or was it really that bad of a fit? Thanks for your feedback!

I think they just have one model. Not sure what the issue was. If you look at the arms carefully you can see the difference from the OEM arms but also taking measurements with calipers, angle finders, etc. the measurements are not the same dimensionally.

I would not have noticed initially but after I installed the arms I checking out my outboard CV boot and noticed that the clamp hit the lower arm. This is at extreme full droop of course so when driving it would have been ok. But when wheeling... could have hit especially when at full flex or a tire off the ground.

One thing to note is that I am not using OEM CV clamps but stainless wormdrive clamps which are ever so slightly taller (at the clamp part) than OEM. However, I never had clearance issues with my OEM lower arms.

I really wanted it to work out because I liked their eccentric bolt design... but oh well.

Thanks for the feedback I’m a rookie I’m just trying to understand.. would it still have hit if you rotated the clamp? Or was there some reason you didn’t want to rotate the clamp?

Mine are ok, but one of the LCA bushings have failed after ~40k hard miles. I'm working with SuperPro on a warranty replacement.

Thank you

Great to know 👍🏼 Keep us up to date on how this goes if they honor the warranty or not.

I’m in the market right now to replace my LCAs and some of the things mentioned here and in other chats have me on the fence which route to go. Granted 40k miles is a heck of a lot better than some aftermarket bushings which I’m hearing that some are failing after only 7k miles… yikes! I will say the switch out of a bushing on a Superpro LCA seems much more user friendly than an OEM LCA bushing. Thanks for the feedback @RivMan

That particular clamp rotates all on its own.
