    New guy here,

    Anyone have either these? Worth the uppgrade after putting on some 3.0s? Starting to do some light offroading at glamis/lucerne valley and now go to baja at least twice a year . Torn between the two looking for quality built and functional. The svc looks beefier and offers the 1.5" uniball.

    The icon delta uca is couple hundred dollars more also.

    Thanks!

    I’m happy with SVC, remember to get LCA slot delete and reinforcement kit installed

    I actually have a set I’m gonna be selling. SVC uppers so you can get em at a decent price. I’ve been happy with them but went a new route.

    no but they will source you a set and then it all gets installed at once and your alignment is going to be close to permanent

    slot delete allows upper control arm alignment for any new UCAs
    stock aligns with LCA slots which are prone to move and then require frequent alignments

    Please excuse my ignorance but can one of you guys explain this? Not sure I understand the verbiage.

    Thanks!

    Slot delete kits are meant to keep the LCA in place and it won’t move left or right in the slot where it bolts to the front end. At that point you can no longer adjust the position of the lower control arm. It’s a plus especially when doing runs or you’ll need an alignment after every run or hard off road trip. That’s where the adjustable Upper control arm comes in so you you don’t have to take everything apart, test alignment, take it all apart again and adjust it, put it back together to test alignment again and repeat until your alignment is right. It will cost a lot more to align without the adjustable UCA’s.
