    Since the TRD Pro Suspension has a 1" lift over stock, can the TRD Pro Upper Control Arms work (Correct Alignment) with an Icon 3 1/2" Lift?

    Are they the same as the Stock UCAs? Or do the have more Castor built in?

    Thanks

    I was hoping to go with a Stage 1 Icon lift and not have to replace them.

    I’m running an OME suspension that’s given me a little over 3” of lift. I’m running stock UCA’s and the only thing that didn’t get into spec on the alignment was the caster. I have no issues with rub with stock UCA’s

    I ran the same setup on my previous 4Runner and surely tested the limits and don’t recall seeing and damage to the coils from the UCA at full droop. It’ll be something I keep in mind.

    I am considering UCA’s but given what I’m using it for I can wait a little bit before I bite that bullet.

    Thank you for the info.

    I am glad that I did not end up ordering the TRD Pro Suspension for my 2018 TRD OR Premium 4R. It's a nice suspension for what it is, if you don't want a lift. But, as an option at $2100 it does not make sense to me to get it if a lift kit is in the near future.
