    I have a 05 prerunner. I already purchased the billies 5100 for fronts and rears. I am going to order the toytec coilover, Toytec AAL, and Light Racing UCA. Would I have to order any other accessories?
    If I bring the coilover and shocks to a little shop to compress it, is it then easy to install yourself for the front coilover, rear shock, and AAL. I will probably get professional for the UCA and then a alignment.

    thanks

    Personally, I think replaceing the UCA is easier than replaceing the shocks/springs. You can do both. :)

    I already have a jack, stands, and craftman tool set. I not that familiar as you can tell. I usually only change oil and brakes.

    For the UCA's you need to order two new bolts from Toyota. It says in small print on install instructions to cut the existing factory bolts out. If you don't you will hate yourself for not cutting them. Toytec does not supply these as of now. My mechanic even called them and told them they need to start doing this since it delayed my install. Dealer did not have these in stock so they had to be ordered. Toytec is probably going to start including these but as of yet they have not.
