    So being from Canada, it took over a month for me to get my Light Racing UCA's. So today I FINALLY went to install them, and after hoisting up the truck and removing the wheels, I found that the package was missing parts. No bushing spacers, washers or castle nuts. SHIT!

    Question: What can I reuse from the stock setup that I need? I don't want to wait another month for washers and spacers. Thanks

    King 2.5" extended travel coilovers with compression adjusters, Camburg UCA's, King 2.5" rear shocks, Volant cold air intake with ram air scoop.
    I would call them and make them overnight the missing parts, since it was a mistake on their part.

    Yeah I'm waiting for a reponse from the dealer. Also I didn't know they were made in China. Knowing that, I would have went with something made in the USA. Oh well.

    Bummer deal about the customs thing for you guys, you've got it twice as bad as I do.
    From what I hear wheelers has great customer service so hopefully they'll take care of you.
