Question new member, question on parts?

I am still trying to learn a lot about trucks I had an old 87 rebuilt the whole truck. I am having problems with knowing what some of the after market parts are and what they do. A few of them are:

HID's
TC UCA's
blacked out headlights ( i know they are for looks but I am tying to get a set with HID's)
and what brand to look for?

I will post more as I see them if you can let me know what the difference from stock and the benefits of having these parts that would be great.

HIDs are just very bright and efficient lights. The real benefit is having a much greater light output than stock bulbs

TC UCA's are aftermarket upper control arms that aid in alignment after a lift is installed.

They replace the stock UCA. If your having troubles getting/keeping the front end aligned, TC UCA's would be a good idea to fix that. However they run around 600 bucks.

I have a lift, but do not have the TC UCA's. Haven't had a problem with alignment...yet...
