djm uca

im running a bj flip with 2 inch coils, I run through tires a lot! its my daily driver, I still have my factory uca's with all shims pulled out,

if I get the djm arms will it help my camber a lot? or at least keep my from buying tires every 3 months?

anyone tried beefed upper arm extenders, I thought I saw something about them somewhere here in the forums

p.s. is anyone running the same setup as me upfront with DJM uca's and still have their alignment printout??

At the end everything will be ok, and if it's not ok then its not the end.

Re: djm uca

Check your toe. I did away with those extenders, too much work not having a mill to make them on. I've had plans on making true tubed chromoly uppers that use factory bolt on ball joints and shipped with cross shafts already in them to make install easy for the customer, but just haven't had any free time to get these available yet.

So until then, you have 2 options...KANE here on CT, or DJM. My 99 std cab has the flip and 2" Belltech coils and I actually had to put a thick shim back in behind each bolt. My toe was off giving the illusion that it was my camber. Correcting the toe fixed it. My tires wear great, but I think the compound has a lot to do with it.

Tire compound plays a major role on lowered trucks. This is why I prefer a harder compound that will last much longer than something soft. But it sounds like your best bet is to just get some aftermarket arms, they don't cost much. You'll be able to run shims again.
