    Donhoe coil overs in front
    Ok I'm new here and I serched the forums and came up with a few hits but i want to make shure before spending the $$

    I have a 01 Tacoma With donhoe coil overs in the front direct replacement I resently bought a set of BFG's and Also an alignment they took for ever trying to align my truck and finally came and said they think i have a bent spindle or UCA. Ive read a couple places on this forum that after u put aftermarket Coil overs that u need to replace the UCA's to correct alignment issues is this true and if so What brand of UCA's are recommend?

    u only need the aftermarket UCAs for the 05+ tacos...

    i ran stock UCAs on my 01 for 4 years with no alignment issues...

    although not all shops know how to deal with lifted trucks...

    i once took my truck to a shop and they told me it was impossible to align my truck... took the truck to another shop and they had no issues...
