suspension help...

ok so i have a 2000 2wd xlt extended cab. i recently lifted it 3 inches. i used front coil spring (forget the company bought from a friend) and rear blocks. i brought it to an alignment shop and he said it couldnt be aligned because there wasnt enough adjustment and that my lower and upper ball joints were in a bind. now i know i need the aftermarket lift upper control arms to fix the top. my question to you all knowing suspension ppl is, with the installation of the upper control arms (aftermarket made for the lift) will he be able to align the front end? i know the control arm will eliminate the upper ball joint being it a bind, but what about the lower ball joint? thank you for you response and help.

I'd get upper arms like what come in the Fabtech 5.5" kits. On top of that, I'd grab some Ingalls cam bolts from summit...They allow for 6degrees of adjustment where as stock there's no adjustment.

NOTE: They are sold AS PAIRS, so order a quantity of TWO, not four.
