SPC or JBA UCAs?

I recently lifted my '02 4Runner using the Eibach Pro Truck Lift Kit and changed out the stock 15" wheels and 31x10.5R15 tires w/ the 4th gen Sport wheels and Falken Rubitreks A/T 265/70R17s. But now, the tires are rubbing when fully turned.

Which of these UCAs would you recommend to use for me to be able to at least get some space in between the UCA and the tire? Haven't heard or read to much of the JBAs being used on third gens but heard and read a lot of good stuff about the SPCs. Thanks

Is it worth it to purchase aftermarket UCAs or just get a 10mm spacer to push the tires out a bit?

This is the left tire

JBA - Zero known failures. SPC - A lot of well documented failures with their first 2-3 designs. I think the choice is obvious.

The UCA's will have no affect on it rubbing the upper control arm or not in this case. The issue is backspacing and offset of the wheel. To get the wheel away from the UCA I would recommend a spacer in your situation. It will set the wheel out enough so it won't rub when fully turned.

I will add this though... if you want to spend the money on UCA's for an alignment issue or whatever down the road, then without a doubt I would go with JBA... no questions asked!
