    How does your alignment hold up with the TCs in comparison to SPCs? Does the size and weight of your tundra influence alignment more than the taco?

    I did a write up on the SPC. It's a must have to correct the positive camber. Check photo sent.

    I paid $495 on eBay. About a month back. The surgery is easier than changing the brakes.

    Not only did I greased the SPC Adjustable UCA 25490, I also hit the drive shafts. So it's a win win and takes a little more TLC when you do it, vs....

    So with a good aftermarket coilover setup and SPC UCA's, is that considered mid travel or is any other brand of UCA besides SPC considered mid travel? Does SPC allow more droop like TC,MCM, CAMBURG, ICON or its only advantage is correcting alignment issues and no maintenance?

    But there's no need to grease the SPC's - at least the ones I have. Which version are you running?

    I'm no expert on suspension, but from what I understand you're going to get more travel out of a uniball UCA (TC, Camburg, MCM, etc.) than a ball joint as the uniball allows for more articulation. The ball joint ones just can't move in as full a motion. But it also depends on what coilovers you use and how you have them set up on whether it's considered mid travel or not. Shoot @jberry813 or @ColoradoTJ a PM as they're the resident experts.
