    ok i need a little input i am new to the lift kits for tacoma i just bought a toytec 3" lift with the adjustable coilovers for the front and the AAL for the back and a diff. drop kit and from what ive read on here its that its best to get a new set of UCA's so ive been looking at the light racing UCA's and im just wondering what is the difference between those and the stock one i.e. longer or what and is this a good set up

    The LR UCA's are a little longer plus they'll help with any alignment issues you may encounter. The lift your describing is perfect...I know several guys running that same set up and they love it :thumbsup:

    well said. i have the LR uca's and they were hands down the best buy so far. corrected my alignment to near perfect specs and rides like a charm

    Skip the differential drop kit. Not worth the time or the interference issues it creates with aftermarket skidplates. It does not change the CV angles enough to save the boots or justify the hassles.

    ok thanks for the help and as far as intalling the UCA's what do you need is it hard to do
