    Use the LR UCAs as a temp set-up and see how she handles, there are plenty of folks on here using them without issue with the extended travel COs.

    Down the road your not happy, pull the trigger and match everything up with Icon UCAs.

    Or just bite the bullet and get Icon UCAs and the extended COs.

    I'm running LR UCA's with no problems. Pretty sure my CV's are what limit my travel now, not positive though.

    Picked these up today to finish up my MT kit. OEM springs from a 1986 K10 1/2 ton, 2 wire wheels, and centering pins. Hopefully this will do the job.

    Should be similar to this. (2001 toyota 4runner. Light racing uppers. No BL)

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377405208.080647.jpg

    And stuffed (bumps fully compressed)

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377405251.133800.jpg

    26 7/8 droop
    15 1/2 stuff
    11 3/8 full rang of travel

    CV binds at full droop. 1" up and the binding disappears. So full range of travel without bind is 10" on the safe side.

    Not that this I relevant to 2nd toys but a 1st get should be about the same

    If you're gunna cycle your suspension, put at strut/Coilover w/coil removed then cycle only way to get true numbers, cause tht seems pretty high for stock length :cool:

    TC all the way . If you want to save a buck and get the skids built in go for the older ones like mine but the new ones are bad ass too
