Is Sonsoran Steel is an all in one kit why don't they include UCAs?

Not beating them up but it seems silly to have an all-in-one kit but not have the UCAs. Same for ToyTec. I guess it's an option you can add but isn't it highly discouraged to opt out of them?

From my personal experience UCAs really have no business being an option, I suppose if lifting a vehicle and having it drive terrible is ok then sure it could be an option.

That's my point. From a driveability and safety aspect, I can't imagine why it's not a requirement. Seems like a liability issue from them almost.

Who told you it was an all in one kit?

And who defined all in one as including UCAs. These third gens don't by default need aftermarket UCAs.

I ran the SS 1.2 kit for 5+ years before getting UCAs only because I switched to 33s and even then it was only minimal needed IMO.

Btw have you contacted Sonoran Steel? Steve has always been easy to get ahold of in my experience.

At least we can see that all the Uniball UCA marketing is working.

Steve used to sell modified UCAs to clear 35s. Not sure if he does anymore or not. SS sells a very nice suspension system (1.2)

How is it a (legal) liability? This thread is off the rails in lala land.

Steve is a cool dude. I purchased the "System 1.2 Rebuildable 2.5" from him. He gave me a call before shipping it to verify what my current setup was and any future mods i had in mine so i would get exactly what I needed. Love my suspension so far. I ended up purchasing SPC UCAs.

How high did you lift it? The higher the lift the harder/impossible it'll be to achieve positive caster. I couldn't get my 4runner aligned for positive caster after lifting it with a toyotec boss coilover setup.(2.5"/3" front/rear)

Perhaps you've had better luck than me but I couldn't get the caster in spec with all new bushings on my factory control arms (upper/lowers). While the vehicle is certainly drive-able it wasn't up to my standard of acceptance.
