    You're correct, it's not adjustable. I have the same kit minus the rear shocks and didn't get UCAs...truck wanders a bit in the lane but it's not bad.

    I just bought the same kit but I bought the OME new leaf spring kit as well. The truck looks mean as hell. It is not an adjustable kit. Your stock control arms are fine. I do recommend if you put it on get the carrier bearing drop kit or just make your own. It is not adjustable but it rides great. You will need a wheel alignment after you install it. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Just put OME on the front end. I went with LR UCA's from fatbobsgarage.com for $379. It is a great kit

    good kit! with the 885's u won't need the lift enhancers. u will get 3" of lift from the coils by themselves. I would suggest getting the lift then see how it drives after the alignment and make your own decision as to if you want to get the new Uca's. I got them because my truck wandered and it drove me nuts! and no its not adjustable.

    If you are looking to get to 3inches the right way- UCAs are almost certainly going to be necessary to get the alignment into spec. But you CAN run without them.

    It's not an adjustable kit- But if you know you want 3 inches....You don't need adjustable.

    I have the full OME setup on my truck (same as yours but with the dakars) and love it. I have stock UCA as well. You can see details as well as post lift thoughts on my build thread. Good luck

    my truck is a 4x4

    Im starting to lean toward the Toytec adjustable coil overs.... I'm running stock wheels and tires for a while, and I don't want to step up to 3" of lift without bigger tires.

    Any thoughts on running the toytec adjustable kit and an aal in the rears????

    Thanks
    Donald
