    If got an 07 db prerunner with a 3 inch lift and im having some steering issues that may not even be issues. Ive aligned the truck a few times and the same issue is still there. It seems to have alittle bump steer i think. Im not curtian but when i drive on a really bumpy surface the truck seems to go all over the place. Does anyone else have this problem if so what do i need to do to correct this. im sick of it. Ive heard that i need new uca's.
    Let me know if you guys have the same issue and if you have any ideas on how to fix it.

    thanks in advance

    It seems like I have a little bump steer too. Not horribly bad, but there is something there. I have a 3" lift as well, with larger tires.

    Yes Sir you got it. Mine does the same thing because of the stock usc's not being able to align quite right. Its only off by 1-2 degrees but it will make it wonder if the road is bumpy or rutted.

    You won't need the TSB with the AAL, you arlready fixed the problem. Nice looking truck. I haven't experienced this problem and have a 3" lift with larger tires.

    Sounds like you have caster issues. Total Chaos UCA's will fix the wandering proble. Tacomas dont have alot of caster from the factory. I think only about 2.5 to 3.0* +/-. When I lifted my truck before the UCA's my caster was .7*, now with the TC UCA's installed, I have 2.5* and 3.0* driver and passenger side respectively. No more wander and bump steer is under control. Also, the TC UCA's give a bit more down travle to your front suspension, which is always a good thing. :)
