Whiteline or Super Pro Roll Center Kit? Or others...

After searching, I've heard a lot of issues with the nuts backing out on the Whiteline kit leading to a clunky suspension and people having to tighten it back up frequently. I didn't find many people who use the Super Pro kit that is available for the same price, or a little cheaper. Has anyone used a kit other than Whiteline that they like, or has anyone just added another locking nut to the existing one to make it not back out like so many people have mentioned? Thanks.

I have no issues with my Whiteline RCK. I have put many miles on mine. This other company product looks identicle And will probably work the same. Two of those bearings need to be pressed in. I recommend a machine shop because manually it is very difficult and damage could be done to the control arms.

I was in the same situation as you, after many research through forums I decide to go with SuperPro RCK. I got these a few days ago, the quality is very solid and boot material feels very durable.

Although I have not see the Whiteline RCK in person so I cannot compare, but I've seem some horrible stories on forums with them.

Here in Aus the SuperPro kit is about $50 cheaper than Whiteline kit..

Yeah I'm leaning toward the SuperPro kit just because of the issues people have had with the Whiteline. Maybe it's not everyone who has the issues but I'd rather not take the chance, although the Superpro kit could have the same issue...

I've been on the Whiteline RCK for the past ~20k miles with absolutely zero issues. That SuperPro kit looks pretty much identical to the Whiteline piece, aside from the blue versus yellow boots that the Whitline RCK features. More than likely, they're being made side by side in the same exact factory. Lol

Let us know how they work out for you as you start to rack up the miles on them!

The problem you're talking about is on rear end-links. That has nothing to do with the RCK.

Issues present themselves on the RCK in the form of dust boots failing (from removing rotor shields), and the ball joints going bad way faster than the stock ones.

Oh, I could have sworn it was the front. Thanks for the info though.

Oh yeah, you might be right on that (I had issues with rears before too). But endlinks vs. ball joints and tie rod ends... completely different systems.

Moonface is an alternative which looks way beefier than any other product: but it's an expensive JDM alternative.
