I found these scrolling through eBay. Has anyone used these?

This has been discussed before and i don't think anyone has used them on here that I know of but I wouldn't touch them. I just spent almost $400 just on quality parts to rebuild my total chaos upper arms. That's not including the arms themselves.

I ordered a similar set so that I could find out just how cheap everyone here (that hasn't bought or used them) thinks they are. They might be right. They might be wrong. Waiting on a good day off to install them so I can review.

Please let me know. I would love to have a set, but I have no desire to pay $700 for a set of UCAs that probably cost the manufacturer $50-$100 to make.

I seen an old thread you posted on about these back in November. Have you had these sitting around this whole time?

Had to use my free cash for Christmas gifts. I only just got them about a week ago. I got the ones from freedom suspension.
