    How does the ride differ/compare to stock OR suspension?

    Definitely don't want anything too rough.

    I feel that it improved it in every way. Better road manners, nose doesn’t dip when braking, firm but enjoyable. I get compliments from passengers all the time and no one has ever said it’s too rough. Even my 62 year old dad was impressed.

    These trucks have factory negative camber that becomes so much more pronounced when lifted. You will need UCAs with any lift. Otherwise the truck just looks stupid when looking at it dead on from the front. Not to mention the better drivability. \—/ vs |—|

    I run that as well. 887s with soft ride OME shocks and the heavy Dakar pack. You do not have to have after market UCAs, only if you want a proper caster. Camber alignment won't be an issue with the factory UCAs.... With 887s and heavy Dakars you will have quite a bit of rake when unloaded and will need to adjust your headlights.

    How bad was your rake w/o any load on the rear?

    same shit as everyone else
    With standard Dakar’s I ended up with .5 inches of rake.

    Also my alignment was perfect with this kit without UCA’s. No vibes and drives amazing after 6 months now.

    Interesting. Do you have any pics of your truck dead on from the front? I’m curious how you were able to obtain a perfect alignment while I wasn’t with the same kit. After speaking with several established alignment shops the overwhelming consensus was this lift should be partnered with UCAs.

    These are about as flat as the earth is round

    Well it’s only 1.75-2inches of lift. Camber and toe are good. A UCA isn’t going to change your camber or toe. Caster is the only thing an adjustable UCA is going to change.

    FWIW I ran LR UCA’s on my 08 for 10 years. They didn’t help me much. Spend the money if you want it’s up to you. Id just wait till the stock ones go to shit and buy something new then. The stock ones are worthless once you take them off. I wouldn’t even stress pre mature tire wear. After 45k any MT or AT has lost its joy at that point and should be replaced anyway.

    By standard Dakar are you talking about the light duty (5-leaf pack), medium (6-leaf pack), or Heavy Duty (7-leaf pack)? I ran both the HD (7-leaf) for a bit then took out the 3rd leaf from the top to make it the medium pack. with that weight in the rear I would run the HD (7-leaf). Right now with only 50 er so lbs in my bed the Medium pack is great. Solid 2" in rear with exactly 1" of rake with aftermarket coilovers in the front set at 1.75" of lift

    I have 887/90021 and medium Dakars (that I added an OME leaf to in the back—so basically HDs.) The ride isn't too much stiffer than stock, but drives much better, less body-roll and what feels like under-dampened rebound from the stock Billys. I'm about 3" in the rear and 2ish in the front, running 265/75r16.

    Hard to tell in this pic since my driveway is at an angle, but I have something similar to factory rake. Also running SPC UCAs.

    It’s crazy how different our experiences have been with this lift. I researched this kit before purchasing and the same advice you gave is what I depended on. In the case of my truck with this lift, it was wrong. I required UCAs. That I know for a fact. And I needed them for both Caster and Camber to be properly aligned. I have no idea how you were able to do this with a stock UCA but I’m jealous since this was definitely not my experience.

    You won’t be able to convince me on this subject just like I can’t convince you. Good luck with your truck. Enjoy it just like I do mine.


    Cheers.

    What rim and tire are you running? Did you go 90021 or 90000 shocks?

    Thanks. How flush does that combo sit in the wheel well?
