Will installing LR UCAs give more room for bigger tire ? Have my Bilstiens set @ 1.75 . Running 265/70/16s now .

The function of the LR UCA's is to allow for a correct alignment after lifting the front 2 1/2" and above

For 33" tires you will need to raise the billies to 2 1/2" and get wheel spacers if you plan to run 285's on stock OEM wheels .

You can skip the spacers if you run a 255/80/17 or 255/85/16 but you still need at least 2 1/2" up front

not really...they'll just correct any alignment issues you may have in the future if you decide to go with a bigger lift

Thanks , I do have a little bit of drift in the steering when going over uneven road . UCAs very close to the back of the tire. Any thing I can do about that without change to a smaller tire ? Thanks

Yup, no problems other than a little drift at highway speed on uneven surface.
Rides and handles great other than that .
