    Ghetto ass 2" spacer lift. Black grill and bumpers. Too tiny 31's.
    I recently purchased some bilstein 5100 adjustable front shocks with Eibach coils. For my rear I picked up a stupid add a leaf and some bilstein 5100's.
    I was wondering what the best UCAs were? What can I throw in there to make my ride even better. What all do I need when I purchase new UCAs?
    And as far as the rear, do you recommend OME or All-Pro leaf spring packs? What else do I need when I purchase a new leaf pack? Will the rear billy 5100s I just got fit my new leaf packs?

    Thanks, Josh.

    You may need longer rear shocks depending on how much lift you go with in the rear. Also an exteneded brake line and a BPV relocation bracket.

    OME and Allpro both make great leafs. Most depends on your needs.

    UCAs aren't going to help your ride at all, just your alignment. If you got extended travel coilovers then you would get more wheel travel. But with just 5100s, they don't improve anything ride wise. Total Chaos i think and Camburg are the best models IMO.

    I also think you should instead of spending 700 bucks on UCAs find an E locker TRD axle and swap it in. Be way more useful to you.
