    So, I hit a deer last week while riding my Buell. Bike is most likely totaled, and I don't think I'm going to buy another bike. I had my permit less than 3 weeks, so I think god is giving me a sign lol. Back to giving my truck some TLC.

    I need some UCA's. Debating between DSM's, TC, or LR. . .

    DSM: http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-5...2005-2010-uni-ball-upper-control-arm-kit.html

    TC: http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-1...2005-2009-uni-ball-upper-control-arm-kit.html

    LR: http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72



    Not many reviews on the DSM's, so idk. Any input guys?

    TC seems to be a popular choice among members even though it is the most priciest option. I think I'll be going with TC when I install my lift kit.

    I chose the LR just cause they are sealed balls...the TC's seem more for show.

    There is a gb on the DSM UCAs and a few people chimed in on that thread. I would contact DSM if you had questions, they are very helpful and knowledgeable folks. Seems like the people who got the DSM UCAs have liked them.
