    Unless things have changed, they no longer carry the UCA's. I ordered some over a year ago and they had to refund me because they were no longer manufactured. Same thing with the place I ended getting mine from (Crown Suspensions), discontinued also.

    The ONLY place I know of they still sell them is Airbagit, but I also don't know of anyone who has tried to order any since I found them months ago.


    @Bozz There should be no reason to need anything to align the front end with just the spindles. My guess is the stock replacement coil springs are the HD replacement springs and it's giving the front end more height than stock.

    Even with that, if you have ball joint spacers it should be able to be aligned with that extra amount. No reason why it should not.

    Hey just fyi I was looking at the supersteer idler arm bracket and they will fit the 2wd as well. Other then that everything else is moog. Pic is the upgraded idler arm bracket. Note how thick the damn thing is, no doubt that ill run the truck into the ground before that thing breaks.

    I asked abt the control arms because most lifts I've seen come with new upper and u had mentioned a shop telling you that you needed new ones that were longer. I'm unaware if new ones are any longer.

    This is a 2wd through. Meaning it only has spindles, which are designed to work with factory upper lower control arms. Like I already said, if he only has spindles on the front, there should be no need for longer control arms.

    That is, if the frame is straight, control arm mounts are straight, and even the casting if the spindle is good. Could have a bad set. Lot's of different thing to take into consideration.

    We need pictures. It will help out a lot in this situation.

    Ding, Ding...we may have a winner. DCP, I opted for the HD 1/2 ton coils from LMC...not the Super Duty's, not the Standard. Here: http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/csd/full.aspx?Page=89.
    This is my tow pig and the fam's run to the beach bus and I figured I'd kill 1 bird with 2 stones and go with the "mid" option. But just by looking and comparing coils side by side, there isn't a lot of visible difference. But there's spring rate, etc so maybe I wasn't so smart. I felt like it rode pretty good with them.

    This would be a helluva thing to do the coils over again. I gotta figure another way.
