Uni-ball Uca's

got kinda weird question for you guys. my camburg upper arms on my taco, the uniball hardly ever squeaks, execpt maybe after a really good wash, a little spray lube and its gone. the upper arms(all pro) on my 4runner, the uniballs squeak after any little puddle, or wash or and kind of moisture. the camburg arms are about 2 years old, the all pro ones on runner are about 6mos old. think maybe the camburg uniball has a better teflon seal or ???

If the Camburgs are fairly new they use American made Aurora balls, Allpro probably uses Chinese stuff. Dry lube with teflon like the Dupont stuff available at Home Depot works best. Spray lube will only attract grit and speed the wear of the ball.

The Mil-spec uniballs are by far the best but they run ~ $60. each.

The company that makes PB blaster has a dry lube spray that i use on all sorts of stuff and has worked really well for me. I think its called TDL "the dry lube"
