    I currently have stock wheels and tires on my sr5 2010 Tacoma along with Billstein 5100s. However my tires are wearing uneven, even though I have had my wheels aligned before. Does this mean I need a new UCA?

    See build thread.
    means your alignment is off. what are your 5100s set at. what pressure you have in the tires.

    They are set at the highest setting, I do not know my tire pressure off the top of my head. Should I lower the height of my shocks then?

    Yeah, sounds like your alignment might need to be redone.

    My left tire (front passenger) is balding on the outer portion while on the right side ( front driver) is not.

    Only issue I have with that link is the "Feathering". Feathering is normal for steering tires, and is common if tires are not rotated in a timely mannor.

    When I eventually get new larger tires, should I consider buying an aftermarket UCA?

    A good alignment tech can get it close....aligned twards the max ends of the spectrum, but to get it perfect, UCA's are a good choice.

    I am getting my oil change down today, I will ask Toyota to align it because I don't know of any good alignment techs.
