    Do all brands of upper control arms correct the caster angle? IE Total Chaos, Donahoe and Camburg?

    I just lifted my truck recently (Toytec Ultimate Kit) and put new wheels and tires on. The alignment was done and it is pretty close to factory specs. But is it true with the added height even the factory caster angle is not enough?

    It does not wander bad but it is there, most noticeable on the freeway. Since I commute to work everyday, I want it perfect. Cost is not a concern, I am pushing toward TC.

    Here's a pic of my truck:

    Hey Evertaco, you've got a nice setup on your 1st gen!

    I think (I might be wrong though) that TC is the only one to advertise the fact that they add 4 degrees more caster. I guess that is why i am asking. My mind is pretty much already set and I emailed Wheeler's to see if I could get in their group buy. Johnny over there emailed me and asked for my details and i sent it to him. Hopefully I can get them at a better price!

    When I ordered the Toytec kit, they called me said they are out of the red springs but they had silver. I was actually happy about that and when I got the kit, they were Eibach 600# springs. We measured the truck before and after the lift and the front is 4-5/8" higher (I have 285-70-17s). Theoretically, it should have been just under 4-1/2". I may have a little more than 3" from the coil overs.

    What you have to look for is noise. A few UCAs are notorious for being quite noisy and TC is not one of them
