    well, sir. as has been discussed in great lengths in dozens of other threads, it depends on how much lift you are going to. anything 2.5-3in and higher you will most likely want new UCAs to keep your alignment in spec. if you forego the new UCAs, your truck will be subject to drastic wandering and will sooner or later make you shit your pants and purchase the new UCAs.

    Ive been wondering the same thing with 2.5" and higher. I talked with a dude at DownSouth Sports re: lifts and Bilsteins 5100's, which he installs in many Tacos. He was saying that the alignment would be at the end of the factory spec's for caster (which can cause wandering) but should be okay. Like oswego said, "should". Somehow it seems some trucks are okay, others not.

    Why the variance when using the same parts?
