    Hi, well I am new to this forum, but have spent alot of time researching diffrent mods that people have done. very creative and impressive. I have done a few of them myself, but I am about to do my first "Big" mod. I had a few questions on it.

    This is the lift i am thinking about getting.

    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    and then get a set of UCA's is in the front to help out with alingment.

    Questions:

    how much of a diffrence does the UCA's make for alingment?
    I saw that one guy did that lift here

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/builds/17273-longhorntacos-build-pics-now.html

    and his front end sat a little high, so what do i do to raise the back up?

    If i get these two items, do those kits come with everything i need or what kind of hidden cost should I be expecting to pay?

    Thanks for any of the help you could offer on this topic.
    ( also i got an 09 extendend cab, with the tow package 4wd if that helps)

    ^^ He is correct about the rear. If you are lifting the front you will need to install an "Add-a-leaf" to the rear to level out the truck. While you are working on the rear you might as well upgrade the rear shocks.

    Toytec sells the "Ultimate Lift Kit" which has everything you will need (including the rear 5100 shocks and AAL).

    As far as the UCA, its not mandatory. Some people can get their truck aligned properly using the stock UCAs. If money is no object then get the new UCAs, if money is an issue, then install lift then get the truck aligned, if they can't get it aligned correctly then get the UCAs.

    thanks for all the help. Now some people can get there wheels alighned correctly without the ucas. Is that because of the lift they get or what is the explanation for that?
