Will I need new UCA's ?

Ok, this is what I have purchased so far. Waiting for me to have time to install.
4 BFG Rugged Terrains 265/70/17
2 OME 885's
4 Bilstein 5100's
rear 1.5 AAL
Drivers side 1/4 spacer

How Much front lift will I get? I plan on leaving the 5100's set at 0. I have been getting mixed information on whether or not I will need replace my UCA's and I want purchase them now and install them at the same time, So I don't have to pay for my truck to be aligned twice.

You should end up with around 2'', that is if you keep the Bilstein shocks at 0. You can adjust the Bilsteins to get 3'', but you'll need UCA's if you do so. If you plan on going with a wider tire you might want to get the UCA's as well because the stock ones may rub.

So at 2" I should be able to get a good alignment without UCA's?

Its when you get to 2.5 or 3 is when you should worry. Even then people get away with running stock UCAs

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

the 885's are going to put you at 2.5" to 3" lift. new UCA;s with added caster would be recomended.

OK, So I got my LR UCA's in today from Headstrong. I understand the instructions for the caster setting, but where do I set the ball joint for the camber? Do I set it in towards truck or all the way out? Just want to make sure its driveable to the alignment shop.

I set mine about 3/4 of the way toward the tire but you can adjust that afterwards too
