Required? No. Will it wear out the ball joint faster? yes. In my case i replaced it because i preferred to not have the stamped steel UCA design when i take it off-road. plus these are bolt in ball joints which makes the replacement of them much easier when they do wear out. but in the end you can put 5100s without replacing a UCA to answer the question.
It’s a firm ride but not jarring. Rides a bit firmer than my dads ram 1500 with the carli fox kit but it feels less rough than the stock rancho garbage. definitely rides a little softer than my 2006 Tundra with the TRD suspension did as well (all being compared on i-35 in austin)
Ill be taking more pictures tomorrow but on the new suspension with 6112’s and kryptonite UCA’s up front and 5160s out back. (I know a lot of people don’t like all black wheels but it’s what i wanted) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I was planning on that originally but these tires run large for a 275/70r18 at 33.45x11.23. Plus i do plan on taking it offroad so just would rather remove any risk of rubbing at the same time as getting the rest done.
