    hey everyone, i have a 3 inch toytec suspension lift with the spacers in the front. and a 3 inch body lift. i would like to get away from the spacers and go with an adjustable coil over and new upper control arms to get a correct front alignment. so, what would be my best bet on the coil overs? an extended or not? and a ball joint or uniball uca? do i need anything other special parts to install and for them to work correctly if i purchase these two items? thanks !!:D

    Make sure you get a stainless uniball UCA. It is an option on Total Chaos.

    Welcome to Beater-ville!

    You can run them that way until you get your new coilovers. You'll just need to get it aligned twice that way.
