talked to them today about their uca's. awesome customer service. they said they might be willing to do a group buy if theres enough people ill call back tomorrow and get it set up and it wouldnt just be uppers you could buy the coils and uppers or their full kit. might start a thread on it in the gb section

For you people that want bare bones info start under this:
I've been looking around trying to find the Fabtech kits for the first gen 5-lugs and I'm not having any luck. I want the 3.5" coils and UCA and the 3" spindles so I'll have around 6" of lift and will probably run around a 32" tire. Does anybody know where I can find the UCA's and coils? It doesn't seem like anyones even selling them used anymore.

At this point I'm thinking I'll have to go with the Total Chaos Taquito kit which is badass don't get me wrong but its gonna cost me alot more than I wanted to spend.


Background and dilemma: I've had my 04 for about 3 years now and never did anything but slap some spacers in it when i was in high school. The whole college thing isn't working out for me right now so I'm taking some time off and working to figure out what I want to do before I waste more money half-assing my way through school.

Right now I'm working a job that will only allow me to support myself and rent a house with a few friends. I am looking for an entry level position at a good company but nothings materializing right now. I do have a $5500 student loan from a year I spent at Clemson last year that I want to get out from under. I won't be spending any money on the truck until I better job and can make a big enough monthly payment on the student loan to pay it off in 2 years. Any extra money after that will be saved and spent on another vehicle or the truck I have now.

With that being said I want a new vehicle or new to me. Its not practical for me to do so now I'm looking at lifting my truck again. Its a reliable truck and would probably be more practical lifted than anything I would buy. I thought I could piece together a 6" kit used but looks like most of these Fabtech kits are gone. For all of you thinking I'm a dumbass and don't have my priorities straight asking about lifting my truck you're exactly right but please keep reading if you can offer advice about lifting this truck (and life if you feel led to express your opinion).

So now I'm looking at the Total Chaos Taquito kit. I would want to run a spindle along with it to get around 7" of lift total. Total Chaos says the kit gives 4" and the spindle would give me another 3". My problem is I don't know what I would do for the rear. I have a feeling slapping an AAL and a longer shackle along with some decent resi's wouldn't cut it. So I need advice on where to get the Fabtech coils and UCA's (I can find another brand spindle) or what to do about pursuing this Total Chaos kit.

If you read all of this you deserve a medal or something but I appreciate any advice you guys have to offer.
if you have the money id get the Doetsch Tech kit or at least uppers and spindles to get you that bit more down travel you want plus the added height if we get enough people they are willing to cut us a deal. let me know and i can set it up

I'm thinking the rear would have to be custom? I've never come across a bolt on rear lt kit. then again I've never done too much research into it... no need to drool over more truck parts.

if you get the tc taquito kit it only cycles 11.5" for the rear you could do extended shackles and a deaver j59 leaf pack and youd be pretty close to even on travel and height

I think Carol is the lady I talked to too... She was very nice and helpful

I doubt we'd get enough takers for any large discount with our small following here... Maybe 5 at most

(And don't you dare try to drag me into it either )

The last thing this college student needs is more money sunk into his truck (as I drop $350 on HID offroad lights and hopefully a Beefed skid whenever he gets one mocked up)

what's up twin...

your the only other person i've seen with the same set up as mine. Can you elaborate on tc crossshaft? Is that behind the coil bucket? I noticed you took the uca cross bar that attaches to those tabs in the rear of the arm so i'm guessing that's what your refering to.

Yours looks like its set up super low. Did that even lift it much? I have twelve threads showing on beneath my coil and a 1/2" spacer behind the coil bucket to correct camber.

my set up
