    I've been wondering the same thing. There are pictures on their web site of the lower control arms on their own lift spindles which are a double shear setup like the Maxtrac. I'd sure like to get a hold of some TC LCA's just to see what it would need to make it work.
    Though I think my best bet would be to have LSK fabricate some LCA's to work with my maxtrac spindles...probably be the same price.

    you can use tc lca's with the maxtracs, just have to run some spacers for the lower unibalol adapter due to the double sheer.

    I had the same dilemma on what to do with the rear shocks that came with my 4" kit. I ordered my set-up through http://www.headstrongoffroad.com and they swapped out the stock white ones for 5100 extended rears (+$100). It's not listed on their site, but give them a call if any of you plan on going with Billies in the rear. Great customer service @ headstrong BTW.

    Are you running a 2 inch block in the back?

    Depends on what model you get.
    An access cab like mine only needs an add a leaf to sit level

    Avoid the blocks if you can due to axle wrap. Toytec has a range of rear lifts that are affordable (TOYTEC Rear lift options)

    Install pics are all over this thread

    On the kit that I'm looking at, it includes a 2.5" strut spacer which would give it a total of 6.5" of lift with the spacer and the spindles. Would I still be able to run stock UCAs? Or would I have to get aftermarket ones?

    You could stay with the stock arms but you probably won't get a proper alignment (caster). Light racing UCAs are a great option. Avoid the spacers if you plan to wheel your truck

    2" blocks are not really a bad thing..... blocks and soft ride like factory or AAL and a stiffer ride (I've had both). Bottom line is the stock leaf packs are crap and will need to be replaced anyways so really 2" blocks or AALs is kinda a coin toss.

    When I first lifted I went with blocks and it was fine with me and I thought drove great, the AALs were a bit stiff and I didn't care for them. Over time I just ditched the factory packs altogether.
