    I'm trying to find out what kind and brand of upper control arms i should get to go with my lift that i will be putting on soon. This is the lift that is being shipped to me right now http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72.

    Looking for uca's that will give me factory alignment and give me some decent off road capabilities all while being fairly cheap. (not looking to buy the best because i don't have much money to spend)

    Thanks,
    Justin

    Just get yourself some Light Racing. Probably be the cheapest. They're functional and will get the job done. Downside is they look stock and don't look awesome like ones from Camburg, etc.

    But if you're not worried about having something that stands out, the Light Racing ones will suit you just fine. I picked mine up from Toytec when I got the rest of my lift from them, but I think you can get them a little cheaper elsewhere.

    What about built rights? Can't find any prices on them but I heard they where a cheaper uca that performs verry well.

    Toytec 16" coilovers with Tundra Bilstein 5100s, Light Racing UCAs, Alcan Leafs with Orbit Eyes, 12" Bilstein 7100 short Bodies, ARB rear locker, 33x12.5 Duratracs, CBI sliders, Bushwacker fender flares, self made front bumper, M8000, Vision X 6.7" Hi/Lo Beam HIDs, full skids, Inchworm dual case setup - 15º clocking
    FWIW

    I know the guys at Toytec are big fans of the Light Racing UCAs because they are fully adjustable for alignment and the upper ball joint is fully sealed, protecting against corrosion from road salt and such. My experience has been very good with them.

    5100's set at 0 and Eibach coils don't require new UCA's. You can get a perfect alignment with the factory arms. I have that setup and just got my alignment perfect. 0 toe, a tiny bit of camber (I requested it) and 2.5 caster. Unless you kicked the 5100's up to .85, there's no need to get new UCAs with that lift.

    Thanks for that info. With the winters here in Minnesota it sounds like light racings might be the way to go.

    Yea ok but I'm cranking those guys up to .85. Thanks for that info though.

    Sorry, I was answering Sir Willy also. The LR UCA's are a good choice for UCA's for a stock travel lift kit. Protected ball joint and tons of adjustability. They will work for mid travel also but at that point you might benefit more from a uniball UCA instead.
