I was wondering if it was possible to gain extra lift by running AC coils up front along with the Daystar spacers? Is there anything you can do to lift the front to match the lift gained from running an shackle+AAL combo in the rear without dropping the $$$ on the complete suspension systems from Calmini and SLR? Thanks

You have three problems.

1. The UCA will hit the spring bucket. As a matter of fact, with that setup it will sit on the shock bucket.

2. It throws your steering so far out that it can't be properly aligned.

3. It puts your CV joints at such an extreme angle that it wouldn't be good for them.

If you replace the stock UCA, it can be done, however, you can't use a spacer larger than 1". Along with the AC coil, it'll give you roughly 3" of lift.

I wish there was an inexpensive way to match the front to a rear 3-4" lift.
Spacers or springs for the first 2". Then you get screwed having to put out
so much money for new arms in the front if you want to go higher.
Or at least that's my understanding of it.

This is the reason I am looking to do a body lift but ~$300 for the kit
screws me too... but it's less of a screw than UCA. Trying to keep the
screwing to a minimum if anyone knows of a cheaper BL than what AC
sells at.
