    Default Upper control arms too big for current lift

    So I install a 2.5 inch leveling block up front for some bigger tires and better looks. All is well except that the ride is ****ty (which it always was even when stock). To correct my problem I order some dta quickstruts and get my mechanic to put em on. I get her aligned and the front tires are sucked almost all the way in the wheel well with 2" wheel spacers and my control arm is hitting up against the spring when I hit a bump making me think my truck will fall apart at any moment and making the ride even ****TIER. Find a guy local to me who claims to have had a leveling kit on his tundra and he had some spc control arms that went on his truck (he wrecked his truck and was parting it out, I previously purchased a CAI and wheel spacers from him). I go to get these UCA's installed thinking it would solve my suspension problems and i could leave my suspension alone for a while and start saving my damn money. What do you know, it makes **** even worse. The ride is fine and all but now my camber is +3 degrees on both front tires and it cannot be fixed as is! The upper control arm is all the way "pushed in" and the stock lower control arm is all the way "pushed out" meaning there is no more camber adjusting. What the hell do I do guys? My tires will be done for within a few months if this is not corrected, is there any solution other than buying different control arms?Click image for larger version.

    Sounds like the combination of the blocks and new struts are causing the problem. Try removing the blocks.
