new uca's or not?

so while i was home on r&r i bought a used 08 tacoma access cab with a toyotec lift. it has stock uca's on it, and i noticed that it drifts to the left when i let off of the wheel. i havent been able to look at it or check it out because im back in iraq, but i wanted to know if i could just take it to get aligned and fix the problem or if i had to get new uca's to get it properly aligned? i just want to know that this will fix the issue before i dish out $400 to camburg for new uca's

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

At 3" you are into UCA territory in order to get a proper alignment

thanks for serving.and yes you should get new uca's.depending on what kind of wheeling your going to do,the light racing ones work great for me and like half the price of the uni ball type.

x2 light racing ones will do you fine unless you a wheeling pretty hard then go for the TC or Camburg Uniball UCAs. the light racing ones are nice too since you can adjust the camber and caster with a wrench and no hassle with cleaning the uniball
if you want uniballs a few reputable companies are TC camburg, icon, all pro, built right and downsouth motorsports

not sure try giving them a call, but are you going with the camburg ones that utilize the stock balljoint or the 1.25" uniball ones?

haha i guess you could say that. i just researched it a lot. i dont really plan on goin offroading that much so i wouldnt need the uni-balls, the ones with the oem ball joints are going to be fine. and from my understanding, camburg and total chaos are the best out there, but total chaos is expensive and only offers the uniball

what are the major differences in the camburg ball joint UCAs vs the light racing UCAs? the light racing ones use balljoints right? or uniballs?

you wont have to worry about them breaking if thats what you mean, alot of people run them and are very satisfied. personally if i had to pick between two balljoint ucas i would probably go with light racing because you can adjust them..ive never read about anyones experience with the camburg balljoints though, im just thinking out loud
