    Ive got a level lift on my truck which gives a little over 2' of lift. It might just be me but the tires dont seem completely aligned...would some all-pro uca's help this issue or not?

    It would be more firm than stock, but better than the spacer lift. THe 5100's are leaps and bounds better shock than the OEM too.

    Im thinking 2.5" or more. You can get the 1/4" spacer to add more to it, if your getting the UCA's too...

    "Don't seem aligned" based on what?? Your eye, tire wear, or the numbers from an alignment rack report??

    Point of semantics...but 884 COIL SPRINGS OVER 5100s...are coilovers. Non adjustable- but coilovers non the less.

    When was the last time you had it in for an alignment??

    Cause after the UCAs or the 884/5100 swap-it will need to be aligned anyways...but it may still come in without the UCAs...not positive it will...but it might work out.
