    I have a 3" lift with the strut spacers in the front, but from some reading that ive done, it sounds like i need to get new ucas to be able to get the alignment right in the front end?

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    True. New UCAs will allow you to get back to factory specs for castor. Everything else is probably able to be set within limits to prevent uneven tire wear.

    Yeah, it would be good to get new UCA's with a 3" lift. Light Racing UCA's would be a good choice to get.

    The question is do you have high speed wander?
    I have a full 3" lift, castor is not at spec with stock UCAs but it drives fine.

    I have a 3" lift on my 2010 Access Cab with stock UCA's and it drives fine too. I don't think they got the alignment perfect, but I honestly can't tell. I originally bought a set of TC UCA's but probably just gonna resell them on Craigslist.

    Yeah if you think it drives fine and you don't want UCAs you don't need them, just rotate your tires regularly.
