My RPG UCAs (1" Raceline UCAs) need new bearing. Unfortunately, RPG doesn't offer a seal bearing version for the fabricated UCA.
I'm considering using the Icon 1" retrofit delta joint. It is a sealed uniball with a grease fitting. The spherical bearings just don't last very long in the muck and grime that Night Raptor sees. Anyone with experience making this change? @bigred1097

Wow a ghost on FRF. Hello Joe!
Are you in Arkansas now and not the east coast?

As far as the Delta Joints, the RPG uniballs you have now are they any of these?

Hello I recently did this.

The delta joints give slightly more misalignment than the uniball/misalignment spacers that come with the rpg's. Also the delta joints end up moving the pivot up so the uca can droop out further than the rpg set up, of course it's still limited by the spring contact.

I've bounced around.
Currently I'm in Pittsburgh, PA.

I ended up going with the Delta joint. Needed something sealed to keep out the winter salt and slush.
