    I have the same seized bushing/cam bolt problem. I was wondering, when you do swap these out are you just doing it on the bad one(s) or while your at it replacing all 4 ?
    thanks

    Definitely replacing all 4. if you already have it out you should do it all at once, not out of necessity that I know, but just out of efficiency and reason. There's no reason to keep the rubber ones that will seize eventually when you've already purchased a pack of the poly lca bushings. You should replace the bolts and eccentrics also if you can(with oem only).

    Your profile says you have a 2014. Your bushings are probably in great shape.

    What I would do is pull the bolts and cams that are not seized and grease them and reinstall. Clean the inside of the bushings sleeve before reinstalling. A 12-gauge shotgun brash brush works well. Then cut out the ones that are frozen, purchase new hardware from Toyota, grease and reinstall.

    I did not pull the bushings but I did service the cams/bolts today while installed my 5100's and coils. The front cams were pretty rusty but I sprayed with with PB blaster in summer 2015 and I found the cams had a nice coating of it that must have worked it's way in over time.

    IMG_1343_f23476bbf2dc3aadbfceab91e20d0e2224c2ad09.jpg

    I coated the cams in anti-seize so hopefully when I go to do the bushings in a few years they'll come out easy. For the record my truck only has 33k on it and has never seen salt other than being on the beach a couple times.

    The stock bushings came out just as described - thank you.

    Met up with a few of the NorCal usual suspects to program radios, wrench and bs. Asked them if they wanted to play with fire and we performed your magic. Easily entertained, this lot.

    @h.zack801 check this out. Rebuild the ones you have while off the truck. Better than new.

    Gonna tackle this on my rig this weekend/following week. Just installed a @HeadStrong Off-Road 2" lift along with SPC UCA's and when I went to get a rough alignment...damn cams wouldn't budge. I can turn the 2 rear cams but the fronts are froze solid. Took the nut completely off and wailed on them with a ballpeen, didn't budge an inch, so...looks like I'll be firing up the torch and buying some saw blades. It's only a '13 but it has 70,000 on it, this 30+ mile one way to work is a bitch...

    Plus I plan on keeping this sucker till she breaks in half...literally.

    Wow thanks for this, could have used this last week when I stopped by parts desk at dealer. Took desk guys an hour to get together those part numbers. I must have said "No, I don't need the bushings" 6 times.
