    I've read the "Tacoma Lift FAQ/Guide" & went through quite a few threads from this forum, and others, that have covered what should be done.
    So I am not really looking for a guide...just opinions. This is for a 3 inch lift.

    This is not my first Tacoma and I've had an OME lift -they are not an option for me.

    I am looking for front-end opinions only for the following:

    UCA's: Total Chaos or All Pro?

    Coilovers: Fox or Icon

    Appreciate any feedback!

    FWIW i have the icon coilovers and i love the ride and it handles great offroad and onroad. I am looking into the total chaos UCAs and its between those or the camburg ones (depends on whatever better deal comes first). I havent heard too much about the all pro UCAs, but im sure theyre comparable too. Cant go wrong with any of those options though.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    X2 :D

    I'm running Fox extended Co's with TC UCA's and it's a pretty bad ass set up. I had 5100's and Eibach coils before and these out preform those any day.

    I had major squeaking & vibration issues. I spent a lot of $ trying to get the issues fixed and the experience put a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not saying they're bad...lot's of folks have had no problems. I was one of the few who did...

    Thanks! :D

    I was looking at the Camburg's, but I understand that they don't correct alignment issues? Err...not sure if that is with their 1' or 1.25'...


    TC UCA's it is! I guess I'm gonna have to toss a coin on these coilover's...

    Camburgs do correct alignment. I've heard the larger uniball can cause issues hitting the coils at full droop with ext travel!
