    Any reason these wouldn't these work with other upper arms?

    Hello, These would work with any upper. The UMI upper has 4-5 degrees of caster built in and works well with the lower a-arm to achieve around 6 degrees total while not moving the spindle pin. But other uppers would work as well.

    Nice. I already have SPC uppers and run about 5* I would think these might move the wheel forward in the wheel well a touch compared to stock LCAs.

    Yes, correct they will which would be good for you. Running 5* up top pulls the spindle pin rearward so the lower might center it nicely for you. 2* on lower and 4* up top gave us a nicely centered pin.

    [email protected] We can do free shipping in the US 48. We are happy to help. We have full kits I will be posted soon too, but are already on our site.

    Thanks!

    These are designed to work 100% with the factory spindle. We do have tall ball joint options for adding spindle height but all our a-arms are designed around the factory spindle. Thanks for asking,

    Just let me know and I am glad to help. We also have our race oriented lowers we literally just finished... they have 5* in the lowers with quick removal coilover brackets :)
