    Jumped on the band wagon as well and thought my chances were good seeing the product pics on the site showing greasable ball joints for both sides....ended up getting one of each.

    @The Patriot 1776 let us know if they address the part exchange for you.

    They sent another UCA and it too had a no grease zerk. This one came in the normal box inside of a bigger box. The bigger box had no damage but the normal box inside was hammered to shit. I’m sending it back and keeping the set they originally sent. They said they have no control over which one you receive and that they’re equal, for all intents and purposes.

    I’m going to order a set if anyone wants swap arms that way we can get the same ones. I just don’t want one of each on my truck.

    If you get one (part # ending in 3) with a grease zerk, I’ll swap ya.

    Would it be worth it to spend the extra $120 on the JBA set?

    Anybody picked these up recently?
    Looks like the cost may have dropped a little. I'm looking to replace by UCAs and was headed for some SPCs or JBAs until i stumbled on this. I'd be hoping for the greasable BJs but it sounds like kind of a crap shoot.
    Can anybody weigh in on the SPC vs JBAs (not a huge fan of the color but they seem pretty solid and affordable

    I’ve installed both and prefer the adjustable of the SPC over the JBA.

    thanks @thepatriot1776, I think i've decided to go the SPC route for the same reason. I was hoping to jump on these Mevotechs but I can't find them anywhere, everyone seems to be sold out of the ones to fit first gen Tundras.
    Anybody speculate if/when a place like Rock Auto might restock...or was it more likely a one time sell off thing?
