Hey everyone, I could use an opinion here. My nnbs just hit 170k miles and I'm thinking its about time to do some UCAs come spring. It had a leveling kit when I bought it and I'm not sure if they've ever been replaced before. The truck feels solid right now (no loose steering or wandering around) but is there anything else you would change why I'm in there?

The Rough Country UCAs seem to have solid reviews so that's what I was planning on getting instead of OEM. Thanks.

I picked up the rough country UCA's and don't have any complaints and for $250 they weren't a bad deal at all either.

Just check how everything feels and go from there. You can do inner and outer tie rods for ~$100 so it may be worth doing them as well. I have all of the part numbers if you need them.

Cool, yeah let me get them part numbers. Any thoughts on LCA ball joints? I've never replaced them in the red truck with 213k on it so I doubt they're even an issue.

Good call on the LCAs. Ain't even worth it to screw around with the old ones at that price. Thanks!
