    Finally got everything!

    Here is my question: I still haven't bought UCAs and icon recommends you have them for anything over 2.5" of front lift. The shocks come with 2" lift pre set so what do you think if i just put the shocks on the front and lift it the 3" in the rear? Any potential problems with this set-up? I will of course get an alignment, and then in a month or so when i get new UCAs i'll put it up to 3" and get another alignment.
    Thoughts?

    IMHO, put it at the 3" up front now. The UCA only corrects the caster issue from the 3". The caster being out won't effect your tire wear. You may feel a "wandering " at highway speeds though.

    Plus there are a few memebers running at 3" without a UCA.
