    LCAs on 2gen Tacos don't have shafts. Do you mean CV axle? Do you mean bushing/cam bolt? Do you mean tie rod?

    A picture with a big red arrow pointing at your problem would be the most help.

    That's a cam bolt and control arm bushing. They control your alignment. Getting them out is mainly a matter of unbolting and donking the shit out of the LCA until it comes out of the frame horn.

    bunch of goons, anyways they arent greased from the factory so they seize up and they do not come apart no matter how much hitting or pb plaster. When I pulled mine I had to cut them out and replace them with new ones. Its really common to do so

    Ha! That's what I was thinking. There is always a way to get seized bolts out. That's why I like air tools for loosening bolts. Those control arm bolts are no match for 750 ft lbs of torque! :D Not that cutting them doesn't work. I just prefer to not destroy things to get them removed. Although there was this one time I was taking out a control arm cam bolt with an impact gun and it sheared the alignment tab right off!!:mad:

    Others have beat me to it, but mainly:

    - Yes it is possible.
    - Penetrating oil helps.
    - The right tools help.
