    I have used the search function, but it wasn't much help. I need UCAs for my 73 Dart Sport. Money is an issue unfortunately. Who has them available at a decent price? I'd love some adjustable arms, but I can always use adjustable bushings. I prefer new because I had threading problems last time and had to tack weld the ball joint on one side, but if there were some good used I would consider it. Anyone have some good ideas for me?

    Doctor diff sells the reproduction large ball joint UCA’s as well, he’s got them listed at $198.

      I like Dr. Diff. I think I'll go that way. Thanks!

        He also has the $20 shim that will make your old upper control arms work with disc brakes.

          I went with RMS. Ordered them 7-12-18. Called a few days ago and he says they're due to be shipped Friday. I said really? I ordered them two weeks ago and you haven't shipped them yet? He says we were all at Carlisle, no one was in the office. So nice of you to put that on your website so customers will know. My car has been down almost a month now. I might have gone with another option had I known I'd be waiting three weeks for delivery.

          Yeah that’s lame. I know Cass updates the DoctorDiff website when he’s out of town at shows.

          I run the double adjustable SPC arms from Bergman AutoCraft on my car, but if I didnt want double adjustables I’d use the QA1 UCA’s. Don’t the RMS arms use heims? Not a big fan of those on the street for the control arms.

          Ouch. I suspect you don't have the longest classic car driving season in Minnesota.
