    I live in Indian Trail, NC, right outside Charlotte, and I'm in need of some help installing my toytec coilover kit and some LR UCAs. (By help, I mean someone to make sure I am not f'ing my truck upand that will lend a hand when I need it.) Any takers for some beer and pizza?

    When do you want to do it? Do you have access to a lift, it makes it go so much easier. If you don't have access to a lift, I do and I am in Columbia if you want to come down.

    I've had the parts and pieces for over a week no and I am feeling the need to get them on sooner rather than later (as in some friends are coming over tonight and we might have to give it a try). My buddy's cousin has a lift, but we haven't talk about using it that much. If I don't get it on tonight I'll let you know and might have to take you up on your offer. I really appreciate it. Have a good one.

    are you just putting in the spacers on the factory coil, or are you installing new coil overs? I have factory coils with spacer already put together, I had them on my truck but didn't like them so I took them off and put in coil overs. Just let me know I will be working on my truck tomorrow.

    No, I've currently got stock coils on 5100s. I'm going to put the toytec coilover kit on them, and change out the UCAs also. I've already added the rear AAL. When all is done, it will be the toytec ultimae lift.

    When you put the UCAs on you will have to take a sledge hammer to the body to remove the long bolt, or with the help of another person a pry bar will move the sheet metal enough to get the bolt out. if you need anything you can call or text me @ 979-201-0420 name is Frank.

    Ended up not getting around to it. Somehow threw my back out. I can hardly stand up. Guess I'm not getting any younger. I really do appreciate the info, Frank. My name is Travis.

    Would it be better to just cut the bolt and get a replacement from a dealership?

    no, its not as hard as it sounds, it took me a while to figure it out when I did mine but after the first one the second one was easy. It is just a matter of getting enough clearance to move the bolt out and back in. If you cut the bolt that is in there then you have to pay for a new bolt and still move the sheet metal to put the new one back in.
