    I'm updating my suspension on my '98 4x4. OME all 'round. Do I spring for some Light Racing UCAs at the same time or Line-X the bed. I can't really make a case for needing either one, but what the hell...

    Help me decide. Please.

    No, I tried, I really did, to delete the other upon realizing that I had posted in the wrong place. See edit note on the other thread.

    Go UCA's if your alignment is off. If not, prolly the bedliner first but UCA's will increase travel and ride quality I believe. Is your bed rusting at all?

    Is my bed rusting, Prescott? I don't know. It's got a tupperware polyethylene liner in it under a canopy, but since I bought it last summer and started using the bed right away, I'm really not sure if there's much rust under there.

    That could complicate things when I go to get it Line-X'd couldn't it? I don't know how to deal with that...

    new 31x10.5 tires, mag wheels, drilled rotors, new sound, and a cb.
    Not really, they just wire wheel the rust off and spray it, once sprayed it cant rust any more.
