    I have been reading a lot and I decided I will be going with the pro comp 3in lift. Is this all that I will need ? will i need to replace my stock UCA's with new ones? Or is this some thing that I can do later on. Im new to this and if you could explain why it was a yes or no that would be awesome. This is the pro comp kit, and i guess i will have to buy the covers for them what ones do i need?

    If you did your research and like that lift go for it. You can drive without UCAs (if you need them) but you'll have a 'looser feeling' steering; it won't want to track as straight as it did stock, you'll be on the steering wheel a bit more than you were at stock and your bumpsteer might be a little worse.

    Theres nothing wrong with driving it for a while first to determine if you need UCAs. Some folks with a 3" lift claim they didn't need them and their alignment is fine, I find this hard to believe but no harm in trying first.

    ....when you hit a bump, steering geometry if effected so much that vehicle will jerk/steer. Not good

    If your budget allows I would definitely get them. You may also want to get some axle shims to help keep proper pinion angle, this will help you avoid possible vibrations. Axle shims are cheap ($30) and easy to install while putting in the aal.

    You will find a lot of excellent info on this site. I just put a 3 inch Toytec lift on mine and founds answers to all my questions here.
