Default 3" Lift coil with UCA for 2.5" coil.

I want to run 3" lift coils on my truck with the Fabtech arm for their 2.5" lift coil. Am I looking for issues or will the extra .5" be negligable (I expect a little sag from weight).

I was going to try the Cancuk motorsports ones. I know the whole you get what you pay for thing, but im willing to try them based on reading many posts on other car forums that they have good quality and have been around. I would never buy there control arms though or anything else. I plan on using fabtech arms if i can get a deal on them.

----------

Canuk makes the springs in canada, only springs Springtech makes everything else which look shitty.

Hmm...I don't think it would make a difference, but I am not going to say you are good to go with no worries either. It is only 1/2" but who knows what kind of wear that extra will do. have you looked at doestch UCAs? They have 3" coils as well. I used their spindles on my 04 with no probs.

Yea, I got a quote from them. Theyre asking about 180ish for the coil shipped, and almost 400 for the UCA shipped. I was only looking into the Fabtech arm because I was anticipating a good deal, but that fell through.. So back to plan A.. Im going to just make some with MOOG High angle ball joints...
