    I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on 5100's. I'm wondering if I can get away w/ stock UCA's w/ Eibach's and 5100 @ .85? According to my math it'll be 2.45" of lift. Eventually I plan on installing a toytec .5 spacer on drivers side and .25 on passenger. Thanks for the help TW.:D

    From what I have found, its about 50/50 who have replaced their UCAs. Most said it would be better just to do it, or plan on doing it later when they have the $$. I'm sure it cant hurt one bit to get a proper caster/Alignment if running larger wheels/tires.
    Wish the dang things weren't almost $500. Just as much as the Shocks/Coils, lol.

    If you have alignment issues at .85, you can always set the 5100's back to 0 and run it that way til you can save up for new UCA's. Like Sawick said, it's 50/50 whether you're going to have issues at .85, you could be one of the lucky ones.

    Homertaco grill, Light Racing UCA's, 2.8" front lift (5100's at 0.85 setting and Eibach springs) 2" AAL with rear 5100's, Wet Okole seat covers fr/ bk. 17 x 9 Incubus Crusher wheels w/ 4.5" backspacing. 30% tinted front windows.
    I have eibach's and 5100's at 0.85. My alignment was okay, but not ideal for my tastes. I ended up buying some Light Racing UCA's from Fat Bobs garage, and I installed them yesterday. I had 4 alignments right after my lift was installed, and after the 4th try 1.9/ 2.08 caster, and 0.6 camber was the best I could get. It drove fine, just felt light in the wheel, and I got tired of it. I'm going to get the LR units set at 2.5 caster, 0 camber, 0 toe when I go for my alignment later this week.
