    i just got my truck lifted 3 inch with the procomp set up. springs and shocks in the front and aal and shocks in the rear. i running on 18s with 295 65 goodyear duratrac. the truck has been align with the 3 inch lift and the tires been balance. it seem sometime when i drive i have little control over the handling. everytime it hits a bump on the road, i can feel the truck and the steering going out of control and sometime i even think that the truck is hoping when i hit pot holes. is there anything out there i can use to minimize this problem

    Do you have stock UCA's? It's hard to get a tacoma with a 3" lift aligned properly without aftermarket UCA's. Did the shop that aligned it give you an alignment spec sheet? Did they mention that they had difficulty aligning it properly?

    wat?
    UCA's are needed to get the alignment into/closer to spec and it will reduce the bumpsteer

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    wider wheel offset has seemed to add a shit-ton of bump steer to my truck. Going from 5" backspaces wheels to 4.5" backspace wheels added a ton for some reason. But UCAs will help a bit.
