Was thinkin about goin to the local junk yard and looking to pull out a titan lca and uca. And buying the ext tie rod and uni-ball/ball joint conversion from greg (prg) and putting it on my truck. But would it be better to leave my suspension I have now on ( cst spindle, TC uca, icon coilovers ) or would it be better to throw the stock lca and uca from a titan on the since the uca is a ball joint instead of a uniball system? Hope that made sense?

And does/ is anybody have or plan on getting rid of a titan lca, uca, prg tie rod ext, and ball joint/uniball conversion that is willing to sell?

Thanks in advance guys/ ladies ....

The point of the T swap is for extended travel, stability and possibility of a better turning radious. If you are looking for any of these, the go with the T swap but if you just want looks, keep what you have and save the cash.

Exactly what I want and everyone could use more travel. I guess my concern was the stock titan uca (ball joint) vs my total choas uca(uniball). And would there be any conflict with the stock titan uca and my coil bucket and full droop or anythin like that?

The stock T UCA still contacts the coilbucket on full droop, an aftermarket arm does help but I still am not sure if it completely fixes it.

Why not try the stock UCAs and if you dont' like the ride, upgrade then.

Heck, talk to PRG and I am sure he probably has a cheap set laying around from all the guys who have upgraded.

Side Note: Just beware, if you extend your travel in both directions, you may impact your fenders with the wheels and possibly kill the washer fluid tank like TO has due to the travel he gets with his set-up.

Yeah I know about the up travel problem .... but I really don't pre run to much .... I do a lot more (fake) 4x4 or as much as I can ... so I can control how much flex my front wheel gets . Thanks for the info bro, I aprreciate it. Ill give greg a call , I just hate he moved up north, now I can't just stop by the house and talk to him. Thanks again bro.

Devilrunner is running this setup with radflo 2.0s and from talking to greg at prg it will work fine if you get the shock valved correctly but having the stock upper arm robs you of a lot of travel and you can wipe something out in the stock uppers or something like that. I dont know it was kind of confusing when he tried to explain it to me.

Anyways we're both in socal and if you do decide to get rid of the total chaos uppers or the icons id probably be interested. especially both just how they are since i already got spindles. but i figure youll probably keep the shocks.

Leave it alone, unless you are going to buy aftermarket titan UCAs.

hey man actually i just remembered there is a guy on dezert rangers looking to sell stock titan front suspension for cheap. i think hes in nor cal and will ship them too.
thanks bro, i sent that guy a pm. hopefully he still has it. no one had replied to the thread so hoefully he's close so i could meet him instesad of shipping.

You could probably sell your Frontier TC upper arms and pick up a set of used Titan TC arms for the same price.
ill keep and eye out for that. thanks

eventually i want to buy some uniball uca arms, but i have to do things lil at a time. thanks
