I noticed the traction was deffinatly better with the UPR series, & the wheel hop "Seemed" like it had disappeared... but the enhanced noise is not worth the wheel hop reduction. Guess ill try the relocation brackets with the stock arms and move them down 1 notch and see how that goes as far as wheel hop reduction.

I'm ready to pull mine out as well, I'm using Wolfe racecraft ones and are exactly the same. Those ends do not look like they are sealed, they spin lateraly much too freely. I've used the maximum Motorsport and edelbrock LCAs with sealed spherical ends which are tight and dead quiet. The upr/dand/Wolfe arms are probably made off shore and by the lowest bidder. I'm going to look into a set of racecraft inc. ones, they use FK rod ends and made in the US
