    so after searching and reading post for about an hour, i couldn't find a deffinate answer, so i'm going to have to ask...

    I'm going to left my 07 dbl cab. i want to do 2.5 in up front. what i couldn't figure out is at what point will i need an allignment. jsut got some new a/ts, and would hate to burn them down quickly. i know that a 3 in lift will require ucas, but will at 2.5? if so, i'll have to postpone the lift until i can afford the some TCs.

    It will need an alignment, then again after UCA's.

    You can use your stock UCA's with 2.5" of lift. If you change the height of your suspension you will need an alignment.

    thanks for the responses.

    sorry, i forgot to mention i knew i needed the alignment after the lift. just trying to confirm that the stock UCA's could be used and still aligned within spec.

    btw, what's a good price for an alignment? the last time i had it done, it was for free after the rear spring tsb.

    i'm a big believer in the whole you get what you pay for thing, that's why if needed i'd get the total chaos UCAs. they sound liek the best out there.

    where'd you go for the $40 alignment? everything i'm seeing is $80 and up

    I got my alignment for $52 or something like that.

    You can get the alignment in spec with stock UCA's but it probably won't be perfect.

    well, to be fair, it's only online searching from the big chains. tomorow i'll be calling the local family owned shops, and i'm assuming they'll be cheaper...northern VA / Washington DC is just a stupid expensive place to live.
