    O K so I have ben reading that it is best to replace the uca when doing a 3in. lift. Is that so if I only lift the front 1 1/2in. to 2in. ? :confused:

    They aren't necessary, but it wouldn't hurt anything.

    It would really depend on what alignment numbers they are able to get with the stock UCA's? You may or may not need them.

    True, because we build most caster into our Camburg UCA to correct the geometry change, you may or may not need them. That will all be determined when looking at alignment numbers. I never took an measurements when I did a Fox Coilover and UCA on my truck, so I do not know my exact lift numbers. However, I set the truck up just a hair higher in the front than the STOCK rear end. Unless you really looked at it, the truck appeared to be level. I still have a perfect alignment to this day.
