    I noticed on the stock UCA's there are like hoses or lines bolted to them. I want the Light Racing UCA's, will they have the same bolt holes to connect them right back up? Thanks for your time, I have a chance to get a brand new set for 375.00 shipped with all hardware.

    Those are wires for the abs sensor. If the LR UCAs don't have a hole foe the bolt, then you use a zip tie.

    Awesome, thanks for the video! Now how do I jack up my vehicle with a load on the suspension? Do I just put the bottle jack under the LCA, and take the wheel off?! That doesn't seem very safe...

    How do you mean "slid the tire half under"? If I were to jack it up under the LCA, and then slip my jack stands under the frame I should be good no? I really only need the wheel about 1/2" off the ground to get it off...

    loosen up your lugs
    jack up truck
    place jack stands on both sides of frame.....
    take tires off....
    slide them half under truck or sit on them...they make a good seat
    then you can use the jack under the lca if you need it there

    I used a floor jack but you can jack up and then put a jack stand under the frame to support then use the bottle jack to support under the brake caliper.
