A lady forced me into a curb a few weeks ago, and now to get the camber and toe right I'm getting RUCA and adjustable toe rods for the rear and camber plates for the front. I've decided on the camber plates but am trying to decide between Kazama RUCA and toe rods and Tanabe RUCA and toe rods. The prices I have for Tanabe are a little less expensive, but that's not an issue, I just want the best quality. I've heard good things about both companies, but I'd appreciate some more opinions.

I would just get the cheaper ones. Most likely they are the same material and the same thickness. Maybe you should check em out and compare them.

both are well made and high quality
can go wrong with either
cusco is in that as well
i do like the cusco a lot but they can carry a heavier price tag.

+1 for Battle.

I'm running Battle T/C rods and RUCA's. The telfon lined bearings he uses is definitely of very high quality.

splparts.com: long standing and well known. list phone number, address and email on website

more-japan.com: wtf who are they? contact email only, no phone number, or location.

i would pay more for less worries myself saves money and time in the long run. its like choosing paying more for a motor from Phase2 then taking a risk w/ the 'new guy'. becuase most people get scrwed over.going something and paying more w/ phase2 there is NO WORRIES. you sleep fine.

so many new companies, its better to stick with someone who has built a BIG repuation that IS positive.

HAHA.

Aaron, More-Japan is basically Tanabe USA.

Tanabe USA is the importer of NAMS/Kazama/Ueo parts now.

Go with Kazama, great looking stuff and I hear they work well too. Saw the part first hand and spoke with sale rep. at JGTC last weekend. Fun thing that you mention Phase 2, the More Japan rep told me that I can order my Kazama parts from Phase 2. Your right I will sleep fine and save some money too.
