    it can do without. However an after market UCA will provide more room for tires and will give more adjustment for alignment. But with a modest life my understanding is it is not necessary.

    It's hit or miss with a 2.5 inch lift. You're alignment will definitely benefit if you get new UCAs.

    you'll notice a big difference in the handling/steering of your truck. you get used to it sucking, but after you throw on some aftermarket UCA's you'll wonder how you managed without.

    Ur wheels will be straight but they will look like they bend in. If you are putting money into tires, get some UCAs
