    The first pic it was still on jack stands so I guess you could call it flexed. Second is it Normal on tires in garage after test drive. Yes 4x4. The Billy's at 0". Thanks man.

    I haven't installed my TC UCAs yet, but my local toyota dealer had the UCA bolts in stock and they were only $12 each so I grabbed them. I'd rather cut the heads off the old bolts and spend a few bucks than bend and scratch up the inside of my fender. My truck has less than 3,000 miles on it. We have enough rust problems here as it is.
    Anyway, good job! I love the look of lifted regular cabs :)

    wat?
    i wouldnt unless you want to be changing CVs. that would be too much stress on them. 3" is bad enough on them. look at your angles first. if fins are already touching or almost touching, i'd cancel that idea.

    I'm not pulling it back apart. Figured it would be to much for it so thanks for feed back on that one. I swear its lower in the front now but it gotta be in my head

    I just drove about 50 miles to the dealership to get front end re done and wow what a difference in the drive. I make this drive everyday and I can tell a big diff. I love my TC UCA's!

    Looks good, don't preload the coils with a spacer. I'm a fan of reg cabs so I will drool over some pics, got any more?

    Your the only person I've seen who kept their spacer after upgrading to 5100's. Just seems kinda backwards. Then you add a $700 UCA....

    As long as your happy with it, though.

    Well now I have come to really hate the dealership. They aligned my front end and now it won't turn right but a couple inches before it is all in my cab mount(never rubbed before) so they going to undue that I hope. Already been here 3 hrs for a alignment. SMH

    Good hell! You should have got some Light Racing UCA's instead and then some 885 coils to go on those 5100's and you would have a much smoother ride than that spacer and a little money left over and no squeaky uniballs...

    wat?
    you need to have the caster bumped up around the 2.5-3* range. moves the tires forward in the fender.

    5100's set at 2.5 doesnt affect the ride at all its the same thing as your spacer only not bad for your shock it won't overcompress the shock if you took those spacers off and lifted up the plate on the billies.
