Want to buy Upper control arms for my 2nd gen

Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy a pair of new or used UCA's. I'm looking for a complete kit from camburg, total chaos or light racing. I'm in orange county CA, if someone local has some that would be great but I can also buy if you have to ship them. Keep in mind that I made this "wanted" ad because I don't have enough funds to pay for a new kit directly from those company's. Thanks everyone. You can PM or text me 714 335 8051

try headstrongoffroad.com for the LR UCA's. Give them a call as price will be better. If you pick up and have cash, it's cheaper plus it's a nice drive to where they are.

I read that camburg or total chaos were mainly if I have a 3in lift or higher. I have a 2.5 front lift

They could possibly out of town due to the holidays. I think the are originally from WA. Marie usually does the e-mails and calls but Robert also does when available.

You don't have to have a lift for the kit to fit. The only difference there is gonna be with the brands is quality of the fabrication and materials used. The stock tacoma ball joint is a weak link in Toyotas suspension and I found that out years ago snapping many on a 95 tacoma I had. The uniball is much stronger, why all the companies use them on their off-road trucks, but if you are only planning on driving in the street any kit is fine and cheapest will get you the look you want. I have had Fabtech, Total Chaos, and Camburg currently. The Camburg kit seems to be by far the strongest kit I have owned. If you plan on driving the truck off-road then get rid of the ball joints and go with a uniball kit.

Cool, thanks for the info dude. I'm learning a lot of things on this forum lol I think i'm going to buy the camburg UCA's from a member here. I got a price quote for the light racing ones and i was going to pay $408 out the door. So for $100 more i'lll get used camburg UCA's. That's a good deal right? and that should fix my alignment issues with my 285 tires and 2.5 bilstein 5100 lift? I want to make sure I won't have to buy anything else lol

I just want to fix my alignment. I don't plan on thrashing my truck. If I go to glamis I take it easy through the rough sections. You don't think the camburg will fix my alignment with the lift and tires I have? I'm confused guys. My bad, everyone tells me different things

Camburg will with your lift yes. If you go higher well then no. If you go easy through any sections it wont matter really. I dont do the quick stuff often but the Camburgs are a lot tougher.

What everyone told you is correct though. The Camburgs will fix your alignment issues and are stronger.
