    I have a 09 Tacoma 2wd. What would be the benefit of installing just longer uca's? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1337936891.710564.jpg

    JUST LONGER control arms? Well youd be part way to a long travel front end and would save lots of gas money because you truck is not drivable till you put on a longer lower control arm too lol.

    I assume a leveling kit is marketing speak for a top spacer lift? And by longer uca he means stock length uca with uniball? Well one advantage would be the extended travel would help his shocks blow on compression so he would have to get a new set of shocks and springs to replace that silly spacer.

    Uniballs have extended droop, the stock ball joint style UCA allows for plenty of uptravel to blow the shock on the compression end :rolleyes:

    Thanks everybody. I want to lose the spacer. It was just temporary so my truck wasnt sitting like a stink bug. Wasnt my style. I think I will just buy a total chaos kit. If I'm going to spend the money I want to do it right the first time.
