6 inch pro comp lift with Icon coilover and AllPro Chromoly UCA

Just recently got my truck lifted exactly how i wanted. 6 inch pro comp lift, Icon coilover and the UPC from ALLPRO. I'm also rolling on Ballistic Jesters. Is anyone else running These UCA from ALLPRO? They "skweek" like a Mother f*****

Uniballs squeak at low speeds, but also grease your bushing in your upper control arms. DO NOT GREASE the uniball.

You can spray the uniball with some Dupont Teflon lube. It gets rid of the squek. Also it could me your bushings, make sure you don't ocer grease them, they are super picky.

Triflow dry lubricant is what I used on my OE replacement UCAS and my LT kit and they make the uniballs silent, you can buy it here

The ride is a bit stiff, i cant tell if its because they are new and need to be broken in or i need to play with the preload....

I recently installed their Uppers as well. I've been considering the same Coil Overs, but am on the fence and tired of repair after repair after repair. $pent way too much in $u$pen$ion fixes, due to Pro-Comp 6" lift i$$ue$. So gonna lay low for awhile on the wheeling. I've already destroyed my $teering on my 2011 with only 14k miles. Replaced the rack and pinion, broke several tie rods and finally upgraded to DOM tubing with heim joints. Broken rear lift blocks and the replacement are cracked now. So here comes another $600 for leaf packs. $ounds like I have lower ball joint issues ready to fail now as well. But it can wait. Had to temporarily use 1 1/4" wheel spacers, because my tires rubbed big time on the sway bar after installing the UCA's. Ever try driving yours on the street without the swaybar? Make sure you're sober if you do! It's just fine when you're wheeling, so gotta get quick disconnects too! $$$. So, with that in mind and about $7k in upgrades and repairs in only ONE year...I'd do it all over again. Cuz I still kept up and blazed the hoards of boulders and granite that my fellow Jeeper buddies said I could never do in my 'perty lifted Tacoma'! Even without lockers and never got wenched! At least I always won the bet and drank free beer at the end of the day. Good luck! ! And Remember..."Live to Wheel, Wheel to Live".

Oh ya, regarding any noise issues. You will pick up more road noise from the Uniballs, poly bushings and the DOM tubing in the Uppers. Depending on your environment and wheeling conditions, use a dry teflon lubricant on them, because the top holds debris like a wishing well, so get in the habit of wiping them out at the end of the day. All-Pro used to sell a cap to go on top, but it was junk and people used some 'One-size-fits-all' type Daystar poly tie rod dust boot that works better, so All-Pro discontinued them. I use synthetic grease for the bushings. Works awesome and it's even red to match the bushings! lol

Dude you're hard core. I like the Pro Comp kit but it's really not built for hard core wheeling. It's more for the lifted street truck crowd.

I finally went out and bought some synthetic grease for my bushing and it cured all the awful noise i was getting. apparently my bushings never got greased when my UCA were put on. If anyone is considering ALLPROs UCA I would highly recommend them.

Im also using 1 1/4 wheel spacers at the moment because im a dumb ass and got the wrong back spacing on my wheels. My buddy is running the icons on his taco and is also using no sway bar. he has had his icons for over a year and does some serious offroading with his truck. The icons have done an amazing job holding up to his abuse. I would recommend them. where can you get quick disconnects for the sway bar?
