    If you do the 3" lift I think you'll also need new UCAs. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yeah the 3" OME will definatley get a UCA, but i would probably not with the 5100's @2.5. Is the 3" worth the extra $500? Purchasing tonight!

    The setup I just installed:

    1.5" AAL: $70

    Didn't need new uca's, alignment was well within spec - but this is a 2.5" lift, not a full 3"

    I can't remember exactly, but the caster was 1.2 I think (a little lower than "ideal"). The other two were just a hair over zero. Truck drives great though, nice and straight and no wandering.

    Hey dude. Deff get the ome kit. I just ordered my ome kit from toytec today and cant wait to install it. I also got the ucas from the group buy. They told me the kits are same and will feel the same but for a true 3 in and not have to have a bigger spacer i got the ome. plus the ome has a smaller spring rate then the eibach kit so softer on rides. More money for the ome but with the tc discount its not that bad. with the ubolts and axle shims and dif drop and kit, there was only a 70$ different between kits with shipping. Get the ome like me. Post pics when installed.
