Nitro-Gear UCAs

Saw this question asked on the 4th Gen Forum, and it didnít get any responses from anyone using these arms. Any 5th Gen owners running these UCAs from Nitro-Gear?

Nitro 4Runner FJ Cruiser Upper Control Arms

Iím pretty set on rubber bushings and a ball joint for ease of maintenance, just need some additional built-in caster. These look just like rebranded Blackhawk UCAs, which seem to have a good reputation Ö but I havenít seen that confirmed anywhere.

Installed these 2 weeks ago along with Eibach TRD Pro springs. No issues, and I got the extra caster I was looking for. I think theyíre a good option for those looking for rubber bushings and a greasable ball joint. Plus, itís a commonly found ball-joint unlike the Delta Joint or X-Joint.

Not sure what my stock caster was before these UCAs, but hereís what my alignment numbers were: Nitro-Gear UCAs-img_7820-jpg

Hoping to put on 285/70ís soon if I can find the tires I want in stock.

I have these UCAs and they've been great. I think they're rebranded Freedom arms but also haven't been able to confirm that. The boot design doesn't look ideal but these still check most the boxes for me. Seems like they may be discontinued as they're no longer offered on the NitroGear website. I would have liked up put these on the GX as well...
