Toytec Aluma Boss 2.0 FACELIFT

Not going to lie.. I anticipated this job being much easier, ya know just plug and play. Unfortunately, that's never the case!

I installed SPC Adjustable UCA's and the Toytec Aluma Boss 2.0's and damn do they look good! The UCAs were the toughest part. The driver's side was no problem. Quick and easy aside from pulling the clips from the battery harness and I actually just removed the who bracket which was way easier than those horrible plastic clips! you have to do this in order to remove the UCA bolt without any snags. The passenger side was. B@#!$ AND A HALF! The bolt holding the UCA was seized and when I finally got it out there was no reusing it. Which sucks because the SPC UCA'S Don't come with replacements. After dealing with 4 dealerships and their genius parts department ..... finally got a replacement and got it all buttoned up. Super stoked with the ride and the look! Now just need some wheels and tires and it will start looking like a rig!

I also replaced my outer tie rods and marked the thread count from the old ones to install the new ones around the same. Something was way off because when I finished up with everything and looked head-on, my toe on the passenger side was wayyyy offf. The drivers side was 7 threads showing and the passenger side was 13 to start but when I finally got it close enough to feel ok driving it to the shop for an alignment I was at 24 threads ANY IDEAS just for future reference? I thought this was pretty sketchy.

With the help of an assistant use a tape measure from center tread of one front tire to the center tread of the other front tire. Do this measurement in the front and rear of the front tires then compare them. They should be within 1/4" to get the toe close enough to drive it somewhere for an alignment. When you get an alignment bring the SPC alignment instructions with you and make sure they know to follow that alignment procedure. You may need to pay a little extra for an alignment since there are more steps involved. You may have better luck taking it to a 4wd shop that does alignments.
