I was extremely excited to replace the factory control arms. I'll admit, originally I felt the OEM UCAs were just fine. Truth be told, they were. They did the job, they handled the lift and the offroading I was doing (not sure for how long), but they indeed did hold up. However, I knew that there were many WK2'ers that were on the fence about replacing and I knew I had planned to go further with my build anyway so I decided to install a set of these.
First of all, the level of quality and attention to detail on these JBA UCAs is top notch. The serviceable/replaceable Moog Ball joint is a must have for any enthusiast. I was also pleasently surprised that when I lifted my wk2 to WELL past spec, I was still able to align it perfectly. I also gained additional suspension droop, which is obviously much needed and appreciated in a IFS setup.
Watch out for some new JBA products coming to the build very soon!
