    So I can't seem to get a straight answer about this. What UCAs would be best for a 6" diff drop lift(fabtech)?

    they are not required but they are a good investment. i have the fabtech 6" lift and just ordered a new set of UCA's becuase my wheels are leaning in at the top

    i would only put them on if i was just doing a spacer lift im looking for set for my woods truck but in your case your getting a complete kit the hole 9 yards and if your alignment is off find a new tech you should not have problems unless he or she does not mark caster/camber before disassemblng it hope this helps

    Ok, so tell me if i am right. Due to the fact that i do not have a spacer lift. I do not need new UCA's? Does the fact that i have 35's make a difference?

    Ok well here is some more background. I am going to be replacing my broken front cross member this weekend and i am going to have to drop the LCA on one side. So once the new cross member is in i am going to need to realign. I just don't want to pay for an alignment just for them to say that they cant get it to spec and then have to buy UCA's and pay for another alignment. Not to mention if I am going to do them it would be nice to just do them both in one shot while i am working on the front end.
