    I don't think you have to have either of them. If the CV boots aren't torn leave them alone. But get UCAs if you want "proper" alignment. I've been running my 3" lift for 1 1/2 years now and still have stock UCAs. I think the caster(?) is off a bit but other than that it seems to align and run fine.

    I don't think I can afford ucas right now. I'm broke and don't have a job :/

    A 3" will probably be at the upper end for the CV boots, but there's a lot of guys on here that run 3" with no problems. Depends on how you drive. Easy drviers shouldn't have a problem

    You don't need new UCAs. Just get an alignment done when you install the shocks at the height you want (you should do that anyway).

    but you're getting a lift for your truck??

    Do it right, or don't do it, it will end up costing you more in the long run. Like I said, though, you should be fine with stock parts...
