    first time was a pita. after that the other 3 got easy. with the lca and tools in front of you it should take no more then a hour per side for removal and replacement of both lca bushings following these steps. less time for the next side.

    3 hours isn't bad at all... I bet I had double that and I had help. We had a hell of a time getting the bushings out of the LCA. We torched out the rubber center as our extraction method of choice. I also have 3 years of rust on you though...

    Did my passenger front cam n bushing yesterday, and getting it aligned tomorrow. I went through 3 recip saw blades just for one bushing. 2 Dewalts, and 1 Craftsman. The Craftsman blade held up the best, and it's still usable, go figure. Here are some fun pics. Enjoy :D

    They would probably be the same as the toyota bushing. I've found the rear lca bushings on rockauto, but the only other place I've seen the fronts were on the O'reilly site.

    Do it....be the guinea pig

    You can get them cheaper than fleebay.

    Also they have washers vs flanges and that would seem superior

    I think you're right.
    A zerk could be added by drilling a small hole and welding a nut over it for a mounting point, but as was said, I don't think there's any point to doing that. Any idea why there's an OEM hole in the bottom of the shell? Drain hole?

    Do any of the linked bushing sets have grease grooves? Anything that'll help hold more grease in that assembly can't hurt.
