Anyone ever not need an alignment after installing these? Mine is just a straight as the day I drove it off the lot!! Was absolutely stoked and amazed at the same time
My alignment wasn't too bad, prob the same as it was with the stocks which was ok after the lift. I had a 6 month unlimited alignment with tire kingdom so the new alignment was free. Figured why not

That's what i thought, the kit still came with 2 zip ties and the drawing doesn't show it. I'm glad they put it there..

There is an easy way to get the bolt back in the way it came out on the passenger side. I used a 4' pry bar and put it through the grill, the head of the bolt was perfectly in line with it, tap it in with a hammer. This was my 2nd time installing these and I wish I had known this little trick the first time.

Yes. I see this is your first post. Try reading through some stickies and use the search function in the toolbar above to find any answers to questions you may have. More than likely your questions have already been asked and answered..

Dumb question. How do the aftermarket UCA's provide more travel? Obviously, they would allow more travel due to their shape, etc., but you won't get more travel by just sticking them on your truck, right? You would need to adjust the bump stops and coilovers...right?

I get it all together, and start to move my truck and park for the night - and at that point i realized i forgot to hook the sway bar back up. when i turned right, it tore the lower CV boot, and sprayed grease everywhere. lol
I thought you can remove the sway bar for more articulation with no problems!!

You can - mine has been off my truck the last 60,000 miles.

He obviously is either trolling or had serious issues during his installation or he drove with the bar loose and it slammed into his CV boots. Either way not good.

Do you guys running TC grease them like every 6 months or how often? I'm just worried about the maintenance with these uniballs vs. my Light Racing ball joint UCA. I know Chris 4x4 has ran these for like 4 plus years with no squeaking or problems. Is that consistent with all ya'lls experiences? Any problems with noise?

I was wondering if the TC arms will also fix the camber issue i have after the 3" lift.

I had the truck aligned at work and they cant get both sides in spec, after the lift.

i also have new powersteering rack, new lower arm and alignment cams so everything is brand new and both side cant get in spec after i put the lift on. My tires are getting chopped real bad on the outside because the tires arent sitting flat.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Yes. It allows for the Camber to be set at .4*, while adding Caster.
