    Has anyone used the SPC UCAs off toytec's website? I'm piecing together a 4 inch lift and thinking of going with these. Any input is appreciated. Thanks guys.

    I've had them (along with the OME kit) for over 3 years now. Maintenance-free and no issues.

    How long it took you to install them? Out of 10 being the worst, what's difficulty level?

    Such a great product to help insure getting your truck aligned without any issues!!

    Maintenance free design, grease-able zerk on the Ball joint, overall a very solid product!

    2-3 on a 1-10 difficulty, home mechanic skills takes me about 30 minutes to swap out. You'll need an alignment afterward (obviously). Save the instructions to give whoever does the alignment.

    Okay cool! Is that because of the geometry of the axles. Or alignment issues with going higher? How far does your different drop kit come down and help out?

    Yeah we like the geometry to stay as safe and sound as possible.. 4'' is right around max without doing a drop bracket style lift kit.

    Our Diff Drop kit drops the front part of the diff 1'' or 3 degrees, just to help decrease the angles of your CV's.

    Well the kit you are getting should come with new spindles. At least the first gen sets do. But to better answer this there is @ToyTec Lifts

    Would a diff drop help your front end alignment on 2.5-3" lift w/o new ucas??

    For your axles yes. For your suspension no.
