    I think that I have settled on Camburg Ball-Joint Upper Control Arm Set,OME 885 Tacoma Front Coil Set, and icon add a leaf for the lift. I have a few questons icon add a leaf will work even if I do not have the TSB spring right. Has any one used the Camburg ball-joint upper control arms an how do you like them. Will the 885 springs give me a 3 inch lift up front with the arb bumper or do I need to get the 886 springs also i already have 5100s. Sorry if this subject has been covered searched did not find anything. Thanks

    Um the ball joint upper arms should not squeak at all, they are ball joints. Yes they are a great arm, many have had great success with them.

    Do you have a winch? If yes go 886. If no go 885.

    Pretty straight forward. Just undo the ball joint and take out the bolt, which some people cut out if they can't squeeze it out. The dealership sells new bolt for like $20.
