    Hey ya all my 08 tacoma camber bolts have seized up do to utah weather is my guess. I've heard I can cut the bolt and just replace them but wanted to see if anyone has actually done it. I'm putting a 6" lift on in a week and will need this done for alignment purposes. Help if ya can. Thanks!

    OZ is full of shit......




    usually but this time he's right haha, they are def. siezed, & if you have to drill them out/cut them out/pound them out/or burn them out most likely the LCA bushings are going to be toast anyway, just went thru this changing out my lower arms, you'll likely have to replace the cams/adjusters, make sure to use plenty of anti sieze when putting back together
