    Hey guys. I posted this forum in the 1st gen but not too many people knew what to tell me so i was recommended to come here. So here it is! Right now i have a 2.5 inch strut spacer and am about to remove that and put adjustable billies on. I want to have those set at 2.5 and then in a couple of months i want to order some spindles to give me 3 more inches and then have about 5.5 up front. Would i need to get new uca? Heres a link to the spindles............Btw im in a 2002 prerunner

    That's not long travel.

    Yes you will probably need new arms.

    Yes these spindles require a new upper arm with a uniball. Your options as far as uniball upper arms go are total chaos, camburg, or just getting them from solo as well. Its a lot of money just for lift most people buy it more for performance and strength and also run it with performance coilovers. Yes it will give you the 5.5 inches of lift but all said and done you are looking at approximately 2 grand at least. Maybe someone who has them will chime in. I think the guy who has them is username jblaze or something. Good luck man :thumbsup:

    EDIT: also those arms you posted have balljoint not uniballs so no they would not work with these spindles. Give me a minute i will get u links to your choices....

    Total Chaos. These can be bought at a good price through downsouth motorsports with their TW discount.

    Camburg. They offer a discount for TW members cant remember how much off.
    http://www.camburg.com/store/susp-s...-tacoma-95-04-performance-uniball-upper-arms/

    I also believe these would work and they are priced a lower than the others I believe.

    Icon also makes some badass billet ones but they are really expensive and overkill for your setup

    Hope that helps haha

    No prob dude good luck. Just be ready to drop some dough if you decide to do it haha. Solo runs sales at certain times of the year. May want to check race-dezert.com classifieds frequently they normally post their specials there. They had their spindles for sale around xmas last year for 20% off.
