Just make sure he knows that he'll be looking at the sky, his headlights will be useless, and it'll ride like ass, not to mention how poorly it'll perform off road.

Yes. You will need new UCAs. Lift spindles work by moving the hub lower thus lifting the truck. Normally, people that do this don't need to add preload because the spindles take care of the lift but since you are adding preload on top of the lift, ie: drooping out the suspension to create lift, you will need UCAs.

I always assumed lift spindles retained the factory suspension geometry/angles on a prerunner. so in theory... spindles + 2.5" 5100's would ride like an average tacoma with 5100's set to 2.5"

:dunno:

spindes + 5100's set to 1.75 + 3" rear leafs could be a nice lookin set up for a 2wd

The problem is you're limiting your down travel, and that's an important factor in how the truck rides. I've had Billies set at 2.5" on TRD springs with stock UCA's, and it rode like ass. Now adding a 4" lift spindle, I can't imagine it being any better of a ride.

If you look at how a lift spindle works, like Hiatt mentioned, it raises the lowers the hub and extends the neck to give the height. The CV angles would be way too extreme.

EDIT: Way more in depth than the rest of you
