Well, based on the video and install guide...I didn't think this was going to be much to get these LR UCAs in. I'm comfortable working on trucks and this is my second taco...I spent 2.5 hours tonight, have one side done and called it quits til morning. I cut the bolt on the drivers side one (got passenger side done) but don't really see how I can get it out. In the picture, you can see the black lines that its hitting right before it comes out (next to the end of the bolt). I think with enough time and effort, I can probably get it out but I don't really see how I am going to get the new bolt in. May end up having to bend the fender and go the other way with it.
Are these the gas lines that people are speaking of? Not sure because I thought the little lines that are bolted down were the gas lines. How am I supposed to get these larger black lines out of the way to get the new bolt in? The bolt head is surely not going to go around them. Is this something new on 2012s...cause I can't be the only one that has this issue if not.
It was a giant pain in the gonads to get the big washers on the inside of the bushings when putting the new UCA in as well. I got the passenger side done, but it was with much effort. It's so tight that its quite difficult to hold the washers and UCA up there and get everything together and aligned to get the bolt through.
Ugh...more of a project than I was hoping but I'll give it another go in the morning.
