    The bushings and bolts on the lower control arm are seized. Should I just get toyota oem ones , or are there some better ones made by an aftermarket company?

    I just bought new ones from the dealership. Thet had to oder them but they had them the next day. I just needed the front bolts and bushing on both side the others came apart. I guess this a problem with almost all ifs trucks. I think it cost me $250 for everything I needed. use anti seize when you re-install them !!!!

    i hate to say it, but I kinda feel that it is the shop just being lazy and not wanting to try to press the new stuff in.... who knows though.

    problem with mine was the cam bolt was seized to the metal ring inside the bushing and the only way to get it off the truck was to cut it off. Nothing else worked. Because you couldn`t get the bolt out you couldn`t remove the control arm. Your control are should have been good.

    Thats what I am thinking ...I havent seen it, but oh well I guess....the control arm set ups are on the way already. I think it was just a little bit of laziness of not wanting to press the new stuff in....but what do I know, im not doing the install this go around due to the crossmember cutting and whatnot required.
