    Hi Guys,

    I'm going to replace the LCA on my '09 4x4 (non-TRD) tacoma. Seems off roading, winter salt, etc. has caught up with me. :)

    Would anyone know if this is the complete list of parts I need to do the job or if I am missing anything?

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Alright, so I got under the truck just a moment ago to do a little inspection for myself. It appears I caught a rock and bent the LCA mounting point and bolt on one side. That might explain the lack of adjustment! :eek:

    Any ideas on how to fix the mounting point? I'm thinking heat it up and bend it back. Just curious if anyone has a creative solution. Also, it looks like the budbuilt's are doing their thing! :)

    Plus the LCAs of course

    The thread that info is from is "cam part numbers"

    I'm getting ready to revamp my front suspension - LCAs (actually seized cam bolts) were my motivation

    Thanks Buddy, good luck with your project. Are you going to put the OEM stuff back or buy something different? Are there any aftermarket performance parts?

    Go with OEM cams and bolts. Some guys tried the MOOG replacement with grease fittings, but they were junk and those guys went back to OEM. I don't want to bother with getting the seized bushings/bolts out of mine, so I'm buying some OEM LCAs from a member. I'm going with SPC LR UCAs and putting 887 coils on my 5100s. I also have Dakars with the OME AAL added sitting on the garage floor.

    That sounds perfect! I'd like to install a OME lift on mine someday. Good luck and enjoy.
