In need of some TW wisdom....
Yesterday, Icon Stage 5 lift was completed by a 4 wheel drive shop. On the way home, started hearing some knocking under front drivers side on turns and hitting the potholes I could not avoid. When I get home, start researching TW and see people having issues with LCA's and the cam bolts seizing when they try to do the alignment post lift, causing a similar noise. I'm thinking that is the same noise I'm hearing.
Today, since I'm going to the Toyota dealer for 15K service, I ask them to investigate. After dropping truck off, they call me an hour later and say "you need to come look at this." Toyota says the LCA's are fine, no noise coming from them, but they found that the body to frame bolts (the one by where the cab mount chop (CMC) goes and the one higher up to the front of the wheel well) are both loose and one is missing the bushing i.e. someone had recently re-assembled and not put back together right. The rear body mount is what was loose and causing the noise - frame against body.
This is where my question is to TW since I am by no mean a mechanic and just simply looking for people to take ownership of their mistakes.
My assumption is that they removed/loosened these bolts to mount the suspension (especially the bracket for the resi) and did not put it back right? So, when installing a kit, Icon Stage 5 or whatever with similiar components, would the installer have a need to remove/loosen these components?
The 4 wheel drive shop said they did not do this, however, the remote resi is hitting the fender liner and scratching it up on the drivers side, which I'm going to have them fix. The fact is no one else worked on the truck right before this noise started happening. Any and all feedback greatly appreciated.
