    About 3 months after I put on my icon coilovers set at 2.5in and 3 inch lift in th rear, the steering became squirely. Had all the steering components checked by toyota and a few other mechs and eveything is tight and fine according to them. Any Ideas?
    it handeld like a dream at first. 10 times better than stock. Now I hate driving it...

    What do you mean by squirrely? Do you mean it "wanders" on the road? If that's the case, then you're gonna want to look into new UCA's to get the alignment correct.

    I have after market uca's. By squriely I mean, play in the steering wheel and just a bit all over the place. At first it just floated over the bumps now the steering wheel goes all over the place when I hit bumps.

    Hmm.... If Toyota already checked it, then I'm lost. My only other thought that it might be a tie rod?
