    It would be wise to change out the UCAs.

    Also how much weight are those coils rated to carry?

    700lbs.

    I had that kit... up until about 3 weeks ago when I changed it out for OME shocks all around, OME 885's, and the Icon 3 leaf pack. I would highly recommned going this route as well. My procomp kit began to sag up front, giving me less than 3" of lift. After the swap... it was clear how much they had sagged and the ride now is much improved.

    Also, yes.. you'll want new uca's. Your caster will be out somewhat making your tires wear uneven and the truck to "wander"

    I did look into the ome. And others. I seen on the forums if you go with 2.5" lift you dont need a uca? So with the winch and bumpper the 3." may drop to to 2.5?

    Yes. But you will be straining the front coil... thus making it sag, maybe even more than what it did for me.

    The 886's are made for plate bumpers/winch.

    I have that same lift on my '09 now and I had to change out the UCA because the outside edge of my tires were waring really bad. I would recommend that you change out the UCAs. I went with the www.Downsouthmotorsports.com ones and have love them, they are great.

    Old Man Emc complete kit for the tacoma has 2 inches of suspension lift. From your link. Do you still have to change out uca with this also?
