Bought used LR UCAs. Came w 4 washers per UCA?

I watched the vid here

http://www.spc-tv.com/install/lt-suv...trol-arms.html

I read the instructions on the same webpage. Plus I searched this website.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...install-3.html

Question. I bought my LR UCAs used on fleabay. Each UCA came w 4 washers. Do I need to install a washer on each side of where the bolt goes thru the frame of the truck? The stock UCAs just had the large washers on the outside where you tighten the UCA down. Do I just reuse the 2 large washers that came off the stock UCA?

I got the truck torn down now and stuck. Thanks

It appears that there is space for 2 washers on the inner part of the UCA.

I can not find any info on washers being used on both sides of the UCA during install

LR comes with 4 for each side, one on each side of each mounting location. OP, make sure you tighten the bolts down with the truck loaded up on the UCA's otherwise you will blow the bushings.

Should be 2 washers on the outside and 2 on the inside.

Interesting. That because they are using the new SpecRide bushings?
