Changed my set up, picking up parts from various persons and such to build the new suspension.

Here is my question, what type of UCA should I get, I can save about $200 and get the Light Racing UCA's, but will it hinder the quality of the suspension?

Below is set up thus far:

King 2.5's for Front
Maxtrac Spindles
*UCA* (Deciding)

All Pro Standard Leaf pack
Bilstein 5100's (keeping them there, current setup)

Holy cow dude I am going to be running the same set up after this weekend. Only I have the expos and 5100 up front right now. Putting the kings on this weekend. I am running a LR uCA. I really like them but need to do the bushing upgrade. Still got the old ones. Do you have any pics of your truck you can post??

Hey man,

I haven't installed yet. Just have all my parts - last thing I need is UCA's so I am trying to decide what I am doing with that portion of this new set up.

Installed my Billstein 5100's with OEM springs the past weekend. I love the ride, but have to get my ToyTech/Eibach springs shortly to lower the shocks down.

Put on the new Fox smoothies I got. I made shock hoops for them outside the frame, welded them up myself using just an angle grinder and a basic Lincoln 140 welder. I'm pretty stoked with how they came out

Good day gentlemen...need some advice on a lift and not getting much help in other threads I've posted in.

Looking for a 3" lift. Was thinking about going with the Icon stage 1 extended travel (almost all of my offroad ventures are hilly rock climbs on CO trails, no desert runs so I think the resi's would be overkill). So was thinking stage 1 with LR UCA's and Dakar leaf pack since I do some towing. Question is, will the Icon be overkill considering how I will wheel it (probably a couple times a month)? Should I go with OME or Toytec ULK instead? Thanks for the help, fellas!

S%$T! That is what I was hoping it wasn't. Some know it all guy helped me and I was new at this and followed his lead. This is going to be a hole days project.

I don't think you could put them on backwards.
What could be the cause then?? I could release some of the pressure on the coils but it still bumps.

IDK I checked a buddies mid travel and the only thing he had different was a 2.5 coil over instead of a 2.0 like mine and his didn't even get close at full drupe.

Spin your spring 180º and see if it clears. You are in a tough spot because the coil gaps are very close at the first turn of the coil since your pre-load is cranked down some.. Might gain you just enough though

That's what i'll do. I just hate to think it's going to sit that close all the time.
