    you dont want 3" lift, you want 2.5" max if you have OEM UCAs. w/ 3" lift, you will have nearly no downtravel and will not be able to get a good alignment w/ OEM arms.

    if you upgrade your UCAs, then you'll be alright. concerning how much you have to crank the drivers side, cant really help you there, but i cant imagine it would be more that a turn or two.

    I dont remember the measurements I came up with but here is a pic showing how much thread I have showing.
    Also when looking at the instructions that come with your dont go by what they say for inches of thread showing.....I think it said something like 4" of thread..that was way to much. Start out small and work your way up. Also to help with turning the spanner wrenches I used about a 6" long piece of square tubing over it as a "cheater bar" to help. It was much nicer to my hands than those skinny ass spanner wrenches were.

    yea DO NOT USE THE 4.6 and 4.3" of thread showing. It put horrible binding on the uca's, rode very very stiff and made loud poping sounds. I would start at 3" on the pass side and 3.3" for the driver side

    also I removed my sway bar for increaded "cush" haha my truck rides on clouds. I have my resi setting on 3 or 4


    for my rear I used this. I had a single AAL from toytec at first but switched over to this and its so much smoother.

    man I dont know exact thread measurements :notsure:. I would start at 3" and go from there. I can adjust my coilovers just by jacking up the truck and using the small spanner wrench with a small cheater bar. I dont even have to take off the tires...
    the setting on the resi wont affect your lift height, thats only for softness-stiffness of the shocks.

    But I will try and get some numbers for you once I get home in about an hour

    oh, and make sure you have all the hardware when you get your CO's. Mine didnt come with the bolts needed for the top of the CO. I had to get a buddy to run me to lowes and grab some grade 8 bolts

    dude, I'm afraid that is gonna ride like shit man.
    Mine measured at 2 5/8" on pas and 3" on driver side.
    I guess go ahead and crank them that high and if you dont like it then you can always back them down.
