    You can; but I'd recommend the LR's because it's a more adjustable paltform. Because the Procomp DB lift has a greater range it's better to have something that can be adjusted.

    Check ToyTeclifts.com or Wheelers offroad they have very competitive pricing! Tell them you're from TW and they will cut you a deal!;)

    So with my 6 inch Fabtech lift would you recommend me getting LR UCA?

    LOL! NP!! Nothing you do to the truck keeps the factory Geometry!:rolleyes::D

    I basically know way to much about these trucks!
    Mostly trial and error method on my R&D, because like you I found that even the people that make the components for these trucks don't really understand it!:mad:

    Good Luck!

    No idea why? You'd need to ask him what is the basis for that opinion.

    TC's I've found to have a short coming. They do not have a large enough misalignment spacer. They work good on 3" lifts. But can't take the different angles of the DB lifts.

    I have another post on CT that show spacer that I designed to fix that issue if you're currently running TC's.
    Maybe later when I get home I'll post pictures of it also.

    Good Luck!
