I can tell I don't need anything as high end as the Total Chaos UCA's though
No need to grease the dobinsons. Its like the oe uca!

No need to grease? So they are sealed like the OEM UCA's? What is the estimated life of them under "normal use". and yeah, I know normal use is incredibly subjective.

If they are sealed, that does peak some interest. Are the Icon's sealed too?

icons arent sealed. you simply grease the delta joint every 3k miles, wipe off the excess from beneath and you're good to go. the uca bushings do need to be greased every once in a while too though.

They are sealed like the OE. Life of them, hmm not sure but according to Mike (Dobinsons guy), a few folks have had them last just as long if not longer than the OE ones.

I am not sure either as the Dobinsons have only been out for about a year now and he is saying that they last as long or longer then OE. That's a problem if OE or Dobinsons only last a year or so.

Day 1 on my Dobinsons UCA with 3 inch lifts. Very pleased so far.

It is true the 4runner UCA's have been out about a year, but the ball joint in the UCA's is rather standard. I am pretty sure the same ball joint is used in other UCA's for other vehicles. And this is what Dobinson Mike was referring to.
