    Billstein 5100's all around, ToyTec coilovers up front, ToyTec 1.5" AAL in the rear with TSB leaf springs, Light Racing Upper Control Arms, XD Revolvers in Black wrapped in 265/70/17 BFG TA/KOs, AFE Pro Dry S Airfilter, Pioneer AVIC-X920BT in-dash NAVI, Devil Horns by Andres, 14 inch shorty antenna
    You can set them for the maximum lift with your stock springs. UCA's are going to depend on your alignment. Seems each truck is a little different. Some guys need the arms to get a solid alignment and some guys don't.

    So, you recomend to buy the UCA's and then rise or rise the truck and see if nothing happens.
    Thankx for your tips

    If you have the extra money laying around you can't go wrong with UCA's if you're planning on taking your front struts out to adjust them to the 2.5 setting, it's easier to do everything at one time. You may not need the UCA's if you don't mind doing the work twice you can always adjust your front struts and see how the alignment turns out. If it's good then you can save yourself about 400 bucks. If you decide to go with the new UCA's I would reccommend the Light Racing arms, they are designed specifically to correct alignment issues by providing more adjustment then the stock arms. You can find them on line for anywhere from 400 to 500 dollars and they are the least expensive yet still quality after market arms you're going to find. Hope this helps!
