Funny you mention Dorman (A major supplier of high quality aftermarket replacement parts). I was browsing their catalog at my MEchanics shop, and even noticed they have an iPod App to order through! But, no, I haven't used their oe UCA.

So, have you used any parts from these guys?

It may require a little convincing but RC should sell you their control arms for about 57 bucks each.

I would like to see a more detailed picture of its construction. This is based on the photos of a RC UCA that was featured in the forum recently that failed. I understand that the failure of the UCA was the ball joint, but the pictures of some of the weld joints show welds that were unaccecptable. The poor weld quality also begs the question "what was the joint design and were the parts fit up properly". Weld strength has everything to do with prep and design. It's the stingiest man who pays the most. While more expensive by a considerable sum, the PRG UCA are the way to go. Good design and quality welds throughout. My 2 cents

I have used Dorman leaf spring shackles and shackle brackets on my Ranger. The hardware that came with the brackets was absolute crap. I firmly believe that my Ranger would have been unsafe if I had kept the hardware. Two of the nuts stripped right away with less than 80 ft/lbs of torque. I replaced all of them with nuts and bolts from Ace Hardware that I took up to 110 ft/lbs.

So far the brackets and shackles are doing fine and this was after loading 1,200 lbs of rock in the bed.

+1 to the PRG UCA. I have those and they work good. A little Boeshield T-9 will keep the uniball from making noise.
