    Well, after lurking around tacomaworld for over a year i decided to join!!!
    I have a silver 07 DC sport, ive been looking into doing a lift and i think i wanna go with the 5100's and the AAL. My question is can i do the 5100's and keep the stock UCA's? Also ive been looking for some chrome wheels for it...suggestions welcome! Thanks in advance!

    Its recommended to get new UCAs when lifting your truck 2.5" and higher. Some guys that set the Billys at 2.5 had no problem with their alignments so it varies I suppose. I opted to get the Moto Metal 950s but theres tons of chrome wheels out there. Good luck

    It depends on what height you are going to set your 5100's at. I think you should be okay with the stock UCA's though. Anything over 2.5"s, aftermarket UCA's are preferred.

    you've been hear a year, you should have seen 5000 of these threads pop up.. yes you can keep your stock UCAs, no you won't be in alignment and your truck will wonder and we dont have wheel suggestions, get whatever wheel you think looks good

    Check out Light Racing UCAs...their a fully adjustable ball joint Upper Control Arm. I have em on my truck and love em. Alot of guys go with Camburg and Total Chaos Uni Ball applications aswell. They are a little stronger but if you don't off road very heavy than I wouldn't get em

    I saw those today, they're a little cheaper than the uni ball, but are they as good as the uni ball???

    From what i've gathered, uni balls are a little stronger and completely re-buildable....but so are the light racings so I guess its a matter of preference :notsure:


    I've been running my Light Racing UCAs for a year now and don't have one complaint :)

    good to know, i dont really do any offroading, but i live on a farm, so i do go offroad from time to time. oh and about the AAL, i occasionally haul about 700-800 pounds feed for our cattle and my truck will bottom going over moderate bumps, will the billies and AAL help with that?

    But for the money you can't beat the light racing plus there just as adjustable as Uni Balls
