    Anyone in here with experience in drop bracket flex? I got 6" pro comp lift and Im looking to upgrade icon CO's and UCA's. I've heard drop bracket reduce the flex and I'm not sure if the Icon UCA's will be more than enough for the lift. I like the look of Icon UCA but I don't want to waste the bucks for other stuffs.

    LR UCA's is the option
    Not sure TC UCA's because I"ve heard the "squeak" complaint

    Any input will be very appreciated

    I've heard that DB lifts reduces front flex, and went with a 3" because of that reason.
    Bump for more info :popcorn:

    With a drop bracket don't your alignment specs stay the same? I'm not quite sure how that all works out..but if they do then you won't even need new upper control arms. However if you do get an adjustable coilover and crank it you should probably invest in a pair.

    grease your bushings and use triflow on the uniball and even the TC long travel kit is silent.

    I know everyone love TC but I also heard people complaint about TC they squeak after a while. I'm not sure it is different if I'm on road only.
