    i run stock Pro lift (1" front; stock rear) on TRD Fox Pro and i have 5deg caster each side. and i won't give up not even half a degree of it. caster because i like how it drives and modded my suspension around getting the caster. not doing caster for clearance, i have more than enough of that. caster for the driving.

    why do you say you wouldn't want to run high caster on a stock setup?

    I mean you could but not necessary, especially aftermarket UCAs as OP has and is going back to stock. Everything is a trade off, high caster takes away from other aspects of handling and vice versa, can’t have it all, too much makes turning harder, etc.

    Good idea.

    Better idea. I'm sure you had a plan to return to stock before turn in anyway though, right?

    But.

    If your goal is a buyout / keep truck, maybe just leave it alone, now that you have nice parts and they are already installed.

    I plan on giving it back when the lease is up and getting a new one when the time comes. I’m leaning on trading them for the TRD Pro setup up or just selling them now to recoup so of my money.

    Maybe a crazy question. Why lift a leased truck knowing either your giving back with all your nice stuff or having go through all the issues of putting original parts back on(hopefully you saved them)

    I would never give them back when I turned the truck in and it’s not really that big of a deal to pull a couple shocks off and some UCAs. A few hours in the garage and it’s back to stock.

    That’s what I was hoping. Was just curious. I kept all my old parts, just Incase my old ass gets tired of hopping in one day.

    Haha it’s definitely a little harder to get in these trucks when you lift them. I have all my stock suspension to.
