    How much are UCAs going to help the "wandering" after a 3" lift? Anyone comment on before and after?

    The UCA's are going to stop the wandering...
    Between 60-65 mph, your steering wheel shakes and it feels like it's unsafe to drive. You definitely are going to want UCA's after you lift it 3".

    thats what i have heard as well, but does the lrs stop it even more because they have the full alignment ajustments, or do the uniball ones work better

    I don't have any shaking...but the truck moves from side to side the faster I go...the only thing that's off much is the caster. in order to get that within spec, i know I"ll have to get UCAs but I never knew being off that little bit would cause it to slide back and forth so much.

    Some times you can get away with a "little" out. Some times you can't. There are factory specs for a reason.

    Get the UCAs and you should be able to get the alignment back in.

    I thought that alignment didnt cause shakes, it only caused the wondereing? I thought that the tire balance caused the shakes?
