Question: UCAs/coilovers after Lift?

Ok, so here is a question - sorry if it's a repeat... I searched the board through and through and didn't find what I was looking for.

I have a Tuff Country 3" suspension lift (spacer type) NOT coilovers and I was wondering if I could still put in coilovers and something like a TotalChaos UCA set...?

If so - what pros/cons would I get besides a better ride...IF it is even possible?

Thanks!!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

TC UCA Pros: More travle, more compliance, stronger than ball joint, corrects lost caster from lift, looks cool



Cons: No cons.

LOL - Thanks... Will there be any issues installing the UCAs because I have the 3" EZRide (Tuff Country)?

Thanks Dave!!
