    Whare do you guys measure height? I have a 2010 access cab, how much do i need to bring the front up to be sitting level? Some say i can go up 2.5 inches without UCA's some guy are saying with 2.5 inch lift i need UCA's. I am trying to decide on just getting the truck level or maybe a 2 - 3 in lift.I have read and reread most of the threads about lifts here, i think there are just too many options out there LOL :frusty::frusty:

    Most people take their measurements from the center of the wheel hub to the bottom of the fender. That takes the size tire out of the equation when figuring height. As for the UCA's that's going to be largely dependent on your truck. Every truck is a little different as far as the need for UCA's go. If you don't want to spend the money right away you can always see how the alignment turns out after you lift it. Just remember if your alignment numbers suck and you end up going with the UCA's you're gonna be stuck paying for two alignments. Almost missed the first part of your question, measure the back from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender, measure the front and you know how much you have to go up to be sitting level.
