Adjustable or extended uca's

Does anybody make an adjustable or extended uca for our trucks? Or is there something to fix the tow?

If you mean "toe", I believe the UCA plays no part in maintaining "toe".

Toe is adjusted at the tie rod. Not on the UCA. The adjustment on the UCA bolts is for camber. If you lifted your truck. There are knockouts that need to be removed to get the bolt to move enough for Camber adjustment.
You can also get UCAs for different height lifts. Rough country and others sell them.
