    Total Chaos is the UCA's I run.

    Of all the UCA's I have looked into, these are the best. They also correct your caster after a lift. They run about $620.00 for the pair, so they are not cheap. :)

    They have more caster angle built into them. They also allow a little more travel in your suspension. And they are MUCH stronger than the OEM ball joint that they replace. :)

    cool just looked at them they r nice. i guess i will find out if i need them soon. all my friend say the tires will clear with no worries but i am stresed. new taco and the frist time ever lifted anything. i have called every 4x4 place and every one say something differnt. i got 800$ worth of tires i dont want to have to send back and run the 265/75/16 i dont think the rest of the work would b worth it lol

    You ar going to rub a little bit. Dont worry about it. The places you are going to rub ar mainly plastic ( with the exception of the UCA ). I have some rubbing, but Im just waiting for the tires to rub thru it. :D Oh, what wheels are your getting for the tires?

    Ok, now your not gonna like me, 285's on a stock wheel WILL rub the UCA. Im not sure you will be able to mount them. You will need new UCA's or wheels with a different back space. Wheel spacers may work also, but I dont know much about them, but they would be a much cheaper alternative until you get the $$$$ for UCA's or new wheels.
