Lift Question

I've read the "Tacoma Lift FAQ/Guide" & went through quite a few threads from this forum, and others, that have covered what should be done.
So I am not really looking for a guide...just opinions. This is for a 3 inch lift.

This is not my first Tacoma and I've had an OME lift -they are not an option for me.

I am looking for front-end opinions only for the following:

UCA's: Total Chaos or All Pro?

Coilovers: Fox or Icon

Appreciate any feedback!

FWIW i have the icon coilovers and i love the ride and it handles great offroad and onroad. I am looking into the total chaos UCAs and its between those or the camburg ones (depends on whatever better deal comes first). I havent heard too much about the all pro UCAs, but im sure theyre comparable too. Cant go wrong with any of those options though.

I'm running Fox extended Co's with TC UCA's and it's a pretty bad ass set up. I had 5100's and Eibach coils before and these out preform those any day.

I was looking at the Camburg's, but I understand that they don't correct alignment issues? Err...not sure if that is with their 1' or 1.25'...


TC UCA's it is! I guess I'm gonna have to toss a coin on these coilover's...

Camburgs do correct alignment. I've heard the larger uniball can cause issues hitting the coils at full droop with ext travel!
