    UCA's is the answer or take the lift off, and I don't think you want to do that. I was looking at lifting mine to 2.5" what way did you lift yours?

    2.5" of lift should not have ran you out of camber, maybe 3" of lift would have. I am no expert but after reading countless threads when searching for my lift i never heard anyone lift that height and said they had caster problems, take it to another shop, you might be lifted higher than you think, have you measured your front yet, if you did what are you measuring at right now. center of hub to bottom of fender.

    You can have them correct the camber at the expense of caster. At least your tire wear will be normal. You can then decide if you like how it drives that way and whether you want to shell out the extra denero for UCAs.

    pretty much anything above stock height will fuck up your alignment...
