    I know I probably will get bashed for this! I have been saving for TC UCA and Icon coilovers. I hardly ever go offroading. If I add just the CO's without the TC UCA's and run with the stock UCA's, will it be that big of a difference? I know that my alignment will be out slightly.

    Many will say keep saving and get the TC UCA, I know.

    Your caster will be about .5* depending on how high you lift.
    Spec is 2.4* to 3.1*


    This means your truck will wnder, and you will have mad bump steer.

    If you were to get the extended icons then yeah i would highly suggest in uca's i see setups with no aftermarket uca's and the ride isnt that bad, just keep saving.

    You can always get the coilovers now and the UCAs later. Just make sure you keep the lift under 2" inches and you will be fine. Tons of people here run Billy 5100s set at 2.5" inch lift without UCAs.
