    Hit or miss with issues...Doing it the right way would be with UCAs....It can be done with out tho...You might have issues...you might not.

    Is it worth doing the work twice to save a few bucks on the front side??

    O.k! If you decide to lift your truck 3" then you will have trouble with your trucks handling. Because of the design and the range of articulation of our suspension.

    When you change the ride height of the truck you will also change the alignment specs of the truck. This will affect how your truck drives at higher speeds.

    The UCA's are designed to correct this issue and return proper handling to your lifted truck.:D

    I don't have Toytec, but with the 3" lift on mine, its not too bad without the UCAs. Plenty manageable.... wife drives it no problem if that tells ya anything.

    Nope. You have to purchase the UCAs separately. (Granted you experience alignment issues and you think they merit the $$$ for them).
