Upper control arm recommendation

Looking for recommendation for a quality upper control arm for icon stage 2 kit, with a top setting of 3 inch lift. Possibly one shim as well.

Why not run an icon arm with their new delta joint?

I'd check that out or total chaos like someone suggested or the MCM fab arms that I have. The @M C M arms are basically modeled after the total chaos and use the same quality FK uniball

Never, ever under any circumstance get ones off of Ebay. Don't ask why I know it's too embarrassing.

Just get a SPC Light Racing UCA. Less expensive than an Icon UCA if money is a concern.

Alright, basically in a moment of weakness I bought a set of very pretty looking arms from Ebay for $300 that were supposed to correct caster. These: 99-06 Tundra 2WD/4WD Silver Upper Control Arm For 2-4" Leveling Kit | eBay Well they are pretty but that's about it. They actually made the alignment worse and now I have to get a set of good ones like I should have done in the first place. Lesson learned.

The lesson I learned is that everything you do on these trucks is an investment. The only thing that "saves money" is spending it up front on the good stuff to match your truck. You already spent thousands on a high quality machine, what difference does a few hundred make for something you use every day and should only ever buy once...
