    I watched the vid here

    http://www.spc-tv.com/install/lt-suv/69-25470-toyota-tacoma-upper-control-arms.html

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

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/suspension/137537-light-racing-uca-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.

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    Interesting. That because they are using the new SpecRide bushings?

    This is true if they have the old bushings
