Some of you may have noticed the original thread disappeared from the forum - that is because the new admins of the forum are not allowing thread editing, and thus I could not finish the previous guide. I had the previous thread deleted, so that I can present the completed guide now for all the forum peeps.

In the new, revised version of the guide I originally wrote last year, I go over the following information:
  • What happens to your truck right after you install a suspension-based lift
  • What "camber bolts" are and how they work
  • Suggestions for what camber bolts to buy
  • What UCAs Upper Control Arms) are and what they do
  • Differences between inexpensive and premium UCAs
  • My overview/opinion on each of the different UCAs available
  • What you'll need to get your vehicle aligned properly after a lift
  • Alignment parts buying suggestions based on budget
  • What to look for/ask for when getting an alignment for a lifted truck
  • Things to do before getting an alignment
  • The alignment specifications I personally ask for
The guide is on my project:KEIRA blog, by clicking the link below:

The End-All Guide to Camber Bolts and UCAs for 2nd Gen Frontiers

Thank you for this information! Do you see any harm in going with SPC UCA with only an 1.5" lift via the Bilstein's? I believe my ball joint on my driver side is shot (starting to clunk) and I've thinking that a higher quality setup would be better given that I do have a lift. Thoughts?

Should be no harm at all - if anything you'll have more adjustment range for alignment... but it will cost a lot more than a replacement OEM ball joint.
