    Upper, lower or both? Also, uniball or sealed ball joint? What suspension are you pairing it with?

    Why do you need new uppers, bad alignment, strength, old ones contacting the coil, looks?

    I was mainly looking at them because I heard that they help the alignment problems that come to Tacoma's after you lift them over 2 inches.

    Drop bracket lifts dont apply, due to the "drop bracket" you shouldnt have any alignment issues.
