    What stock brand LCA's are good?
    My bushings are starting to crack so I am just going to replace the whole LCA.
    The Total Chaos LCA's won't fit with the OME shocks that I have already ordered.

    bump for same info. Replacing my LCA cuz the ball joint is shot and a new LCA is easier to replace than the joint itself (if I do the work myself)

    I'm thinking of doing a rebuild of mine, new urethane bushings and moog ball joints. Just need to find a ship to press these bastards in

    I used to order the cheapest ones from RockAuto I could find. I was heavily abusing mine and bent the stock ones and ripped the piece where the bushings and bolt hold it to the truck.

    I'm just afraid to go cheap then go playing and break or bend it

    I just ordered mine for $270 a piece, OEM from partsnet.com
    This is a Toyota dealership, parts department in PA.
    48068-04040
    48069-04040
    Left and right LCA part numbers.

    Found a few places online but this was the cheapest with the $13 shipping.

    That is $210 less than what my dealer was asking for.

    But did look into it and was bummed when I found out TC LCA would not work with OME.
