    Just a quick question about lifting your truck with 5100's. If you guys are setting them at 2.5", do you need to buy different UCA's to get proper alignment? If so total Chaos? where? how much?

    Also Im from canada and my 09 double cab TRD 4x4 LB comes stock with a 4 leaf pack in the rear, so when I buy an AAL from toytec to i buy the ones for the TSB trucks or not?

    Thanks for the helps.

    You won't need the UCA's at 2.5"

    You won't need them unless you like proper caster setting. It won't wear tires but will track in grooves or pull on uneven asphalt and blow all over in the wind on frwy. If that's annoying then you'll want UCAs to get caster back. Some people say they didn't need them at 2.5 but most like them. IMO they are worth it. Light Racing are best priced if you don't care about having uniball upper ball joints for more articulation off road. I have prerunner, so that isn't an issue because I'm not gonna need extra articulation since not 4x4. They come with some heavy duty, compared to stock, ball joints but are not uniball.
