    Yes TC UCA's are pricey Bastards. But when I was getting my quote from Sonny at DSM, no other inline vendor could beat it. Went a diff route of modding for now. But, when I get back to susp, I will be calling them back.

    Give them a call, you'll be happy:D

    Check ORW (offroad warehouse) they are in San Diego. On their website they have them for 629.99 with free shipping, that's the cheapest I've found.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    for you guys that are choking up the money for these UCA's- What are the real benefits that I'd notice in buying a set of them? I know they allow you to get factory alignment, more travel, and clear the coils at full droop, but is there any other points? I don't know, just seems like a lot to spend for one simple suspension item.

    They are pricey but worth it. When I first lifted, I had a wandering feeling in my steering -- (Chris says it's because of the camber... I believe him :D)... I put the UCAs on, got it aligned, and presto... no more wander...

    They're amazing.. and highly recommended. If you don't have that wandering feeling, I wouldn't worry about getting them unless you want to flex out your suspension. I didn't experience any odd wear patterns in my tires from the alignment not being in spec either.

    Aftermarket Uni-Ball Upper Control Arms have multiple features that make them worth the money! Here are a few......


    - Serviceable Uni Balls unlike the factory Toyota ball joints that require you to replace the entire arm assembly if a Ball Joint goes bad.

    - Increased droop travel allowing for more suspension travel now that the restrictive ball joints are eliminated.

    - Ability to add caster to the alignment that the O.E. arms limit.

    - Serviceable Polyurethane bushings.
