    I am getting ready to buy a new 3" lift and i have read in order to obtain the factory alignment, you have to get new UCA's. But buying new UCA's will take a little more time to save up the money since I am a poor high school student. But I am a lifeguard so I can save up the money with a little time. So help me out and tell me what you think about me not getting new UCA's.

    You dont "have" to get new UCA's, but the alignment wont be spot on without them.

    Nah ya don't need them, they are a great addition to any suspension due to the perfect alignment and depending on ucas the added articulation but you'll be good to go without them. Lots of folks don't bother with them at all.
