Is anyone running a full 3” lift without new UCA’s?

    I’m just trying to figure out if I can get by for a couple of months on a full 3” lift and stock UCA’s without causing any damage.

    3” OME on stock UCA’s. Caster won’t be in specs with alignment and you’ll notice a little more effort is needed to keep her between the lines cause of it.

    Ok so your comment settles it, my Eibach lift will be 2.75"s. I think I'm gonna go ahead and get some UCA's. Been looking at the JBA's. Quality and low maintenance.

    I had planned in the eibach lift but after looking at pics, many seemed nose high. I actually like a tad bit if rake. I’m pretty sure I’ve narrowed my choice down to the OME or the toytec billstein.
    I’ll add longer UCA’s in a month ir so.

    I like a rake also and went with stiffer OME rear springs vs the stock eibachs. I plan on carrying 300-500 lbs daily and tow a lot so the stiffer springs we're definitely necessary. Should still have a rake even with that weight

    The pics can be deceiving, especially if you're not parking on perfectly level ground when taking your pic.

    The front lift height on the Eibach kit is 2.5" and the rear is 1".

    This should still leave you with somewhere around 0.5 - 0.75" factory rake.

    I just purchased the OME lift and after several conversations with the sales team, I went with the 885 front coils for it. Added in the assembly and stuff for an additional $100. Hope the wifey will be happy with this setup. Now, into wheels and tires.
