Well my upper ball joints are shot. I was wondering if the ART arms are really worth it or should i just go with stock arms again?

Being that they are designed and do eliminate binding they would be a better choice than stockers. Doesn't totally apply but I have ART LCA's on my dually and they were a great upgrade.

Both sets are a nice upgrade to an air system. I've never personally seen the BHC ones yet but have heard good things about them. ART arms I've installed several on the NBS trucks and sold even more. All those customers were extremely happy as well.
The choices are out there for you. Not sure if the BHC ones come bare metal or powdercoated. Might be something to consider though.

We have a tubular lower control arm relocator kit that you can weld-on, and locate it so that the rims wount hit. Or we can also send you a threaded DOM bung that you could weld on as well. Same that we use on our S10 axle bracket shock mount or our fullsize cantilever upper shock mount.

ARt has better weld quality for a visual point of view. Im sure both arms will not come apart(cept for ARt shock mounts which have been fixed) but from a visual point of view, ART's weld is prettier.
