    Hope someone can give some advise, I had the 2" Old Man Emu full suspention 885 front and Dakar rear springs installed on my 2011 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 regular cab 4cyl and got 3+ inches of lift from the stock height. I had the truck alined at a Toyota specialty shop here in Daytona who said it was as good as it was going to get but the front wheels still look like they are crabing to me and the truck is challenging to drive as it wants to wander. I was wondering if I got the Toytec upper control arms that are adjustable if that would help get the truck better dialed in and get rid of some of the wandering ?

    Who is LR ? I checked on the All Pro UCA That Krazie SJ recomended and they are $520.00 plus shipping and talked to Toyotec about theirs with the ball joint for $450.00 plus shipping which is the best? Toyotec claimed the uniball requires more maintenance which they did not recomend and the ball joint was more trouble free and All Pro agreed but said the Uniball has 1" more downward movement so which is the best one to get ? Just want to do it right the 1st time
