    i have ordered 5100's fornt and rear and seen someone said that you should get UCA's if you plan on setting it at 2.75"/highest setting.

    i dont think i do need them... but i guess i better ask!!;)

    the highest setting is 2.5"

    but the need for UCA's is hit and miss. Certain people need them, certain people dont.

    Most of the time you just end up developing a slight vibration at speed, of which many owners just live with. However, if you develop serious problems, or just have the money, you should look into UCAs

    I think anything at or above 3" of lift your gonna want UCAs just in case. It will make alignment a breeze and will make the ride alot better. Like Kona said, You got the cash? Then just do it. 449 for some LRs at toytec.
