For sure... I'm still debating but Now I find out that it's primarly to fix alignment with a 3 or more inch lift on the stock upper control.... I'm gonna be installing 4" spindles next week and it should be fine.... But we will see.... Thanks for your input...

If I can't get the shop to get my camber straightned out, I've been looking at these as a possibilty. They cost a bunch but maybe after a few years they will pay for themselves in the tires I won't be eating anymore.

Why do I have the feeling I will end spending $2,000- $2,500 at Christmas LOL

You should be ok with the Total chaos or Camburg poly bushing uca's only. I don't think you will need the heim joint uca's from TC. If you crank your coilovers to 2 inches+ you should be alright.

If you like billet, go with Icon. If you like tubular style, go with TC.

See attached thread, I posted a pdf file on the adjustment.

Light Racing might be the only UCA that has adjustments for caster and camber.

Geezzzz!! that is half the cost of the lift. I am new at this and reading a lot and not learning because I am just more confused and don't have the all the time in the world to research. Not working 80 hours a week in my restaurant and having a family. I would guess UCA's are not necessary unless you are having alignment issues?

Yea your right about the alignment issue.... It's a good idea to get if u have that problem.... It's also good to get if u need more travel if u got adjustable or aftermarket coilovers.... You also really have to think about what u r lookong for in a lift....?? Is it for show or r u gonna have fun with it and actually use it in a sense..??

Damn!! 12 hours a day, 6 days a week is only 72 hours. Then an 8 hour Sunday shift. Wow, you are extremely devoted. I wish I could work like that.
