SO, after a totally awesome wheelin' experience in Wyo for the 4th weekend... I managed to drop my front passenger wheel into a ravine slightly larger and deeper than my wheel. I was able to hobble around without any problem, and only realized how bad it was when I finally got back onto pavement a couple days later. I drove it to get diagnosed, and was told my Upper Control Arms and lower control arms are both bent and need to be replaced at a cost of about ~$2300.
Sob story out of the way... I've been looking to make some changes to beef it up since I'm going to be spending a lot of money anyway. I first thought, hey, why not go Long Travel? But then I realized it's just not practical for my daily driver and really for my mountainous terrain. Plus I don't really want to spend the money to do the front and back (yeowch it's pricey!). Same with SAS... just overkill for my needs. I think just beefing up the mid-travel is the right option for me.
In my research I've only been able to find that Total Chaos makes a stock size aftermarket LCA/uniball assembly. While it looks solid, has the matching UCA and adds a second mounting point for another shock, it seems like I may also have to replace the stock TRD brakes.
Edit: I should also mention my setup, although it's in my profile...
'08 DC Shortbed w/Toytec Ultimate
So my questions are:
Any other options I should pursue?
Any other manufactures you're aware of that make a stock size (not LT) LCA?
Any other upgrades I should make while I'm doing this? (beefing up the steering system, spindle gussets, etc?)
