    So I was doing a visual check on the truck this evening and noticed about a 1/2" gap between the UCA's and the bump stops. Is this something that I should be worried about or is it ok?

    I'm pretty sure thats normal with leveling kits.

    thanks STB. Just didnt know if I should look into new UCA's if I were going to run a level kit for a while. Cant deceide if I want to keep it leveled off or do a small lift. Just want to make sure the the truck is in as good shape as it can be.

    Ok...dumb question; what is a "UCA?" I googled it and came up with the Universal Cheerleaders Association.

    That's normal for leveling kits. Just as long as they ball joints aren't at too bad of angles. Zone Offroad makes a good 4.5" kit!!!

    STB's zoomin you Mike. UCA stands for "University of Colorado Alumni" something you should have known since you live in Colorado, & since it was your pic that is posted with the cheerleaders ha ha ha

    AWESOME!!! I looked some up like Cognito and they sure do think a lot of them....Might be cheaper in the long run to go big than trying to help the down travel.

    Alston, CSTSuspension has a nice 4" kit and Skyjacker makes a 3" lift for the NBS trucks. Both have pictures on there websites.
