    Looking to install 5100s on my 2011 tacoma 2wd.

    One question, when removing the factory coilover, after unbolting the shock from the lower control arm and the 3 bolts at the top of the shock....will the lower control arm simply drop allowing me to remove the shock?
    --or--
    Will I need to remove the ball joints in order to remove the shock?

    Thanks guys!
