    Bent up my LCA's wheeling. Need to have them replaced.

    Toyota seems to want about 550-600$ a side for replacement.

    Do I have any aftermarket options? I thought I saw some TC LCA's at one point but all I can find is long travel, and unfortunately I don't have the coin for it at the moment.

    If possible, I'd like to replace them with something alittle stronger, but if not I'll look into some armor for them.

    Thanks!

    Don't have any atm, and it's rainy outside :p I'll get some when it clears up.

    They're driveable right now, but I had my alignment looked at and they told me only one side can be in spec due to the bend. Now I have a vibe on the highway and I want it gone -.-

    Perhaps you can find some used LCAs and weld (or bolt) these on:

    I'm hoping I can snag a set from someone who went LT and then go with armor as it seems that's the cheaper option. I found the TC LCA's and at ~1600 they're a bit out of my price range.
