Need a quick measurement from anyone with total chaos UCA

Criteria:
2nd gen taco
TC mid travel uca

I have a sneeking suspicion that there's something strange about my mid-travel total chaos UCA. Will anyone with a 2nd gen tacoma take a meaurement of their chaos uca between the two points illustrated in the picture for me (i.e. center of the uniball and the long control arm bolt)? Thanks in advance!

6 3/4"

Keep in mind we might be at different heights.

Thanks Goose.

Dam, I'm really confused then. I have this negative camber issue I've been chasing around. Today Dellosa89 came over and I took a bunch of measurements off of his truck. He has the camburg mid travel set up. Anyhow he doesn't have any alignment issues and the only differences I could find between his setup and mine was the length of the UCA. His UCA was 7-3/8 between the pts shown in my pics.

The camber is within spec and the caster is about 1-1.5 degrees more than spec. Having the extra caster seems to beat up the steering rack and cause the alignment to go out easier. However, there's no more room for adjustment because all of the adjusters are maxed out to keep the camber within range.

Edit: Next time I get it aligned I will copy and post the alignment sheet. I bought some total chaos shock tower gussets today because I thought the shock towers were bending. After takeing some measurements today it would appear nothing is bent.

Sure looks normal to me. I just don't understand what's wrong... I guess I need to park next to another mid travel taco and get out the tape measurer again. Thanks for posting.
