    going to just throw a bead around the factory setup to strengthen it up

    saves him a lot of time and does basically the same as swapping out for the TC kit

    first impressions are great with the new setup...Jace kicked some ass today and get everything done...

    cut the old LCAs out, install TC lowers, install Icon C/O and adjust (swapped out the springs earlier this week), replace my driver side wheel bearing, then align (MUCH NEEDED!)

    here's some pics :D

    old LCAs cut out..prepping the cam tabs to be reinforced

    threw a bead around them for reinforcements

    some tabs needed some love to get back to shape

    found out i should look into some limiting straps for the fronts too

    probably mount them back here using the secondary shock mount

    best alignment this truck has seen in a loooong time :cheers:

    yea it's a hard bill to swallow for sure...all started with having seized cam bolts and failing ball joints...needed to get an alignment too..so it was either new factory LCAs w/ ball joints or upgrade...

    chose to upgrade...while having those nice new lowers...might as well get some nice coilovers to complete the package...

    now i'm broke and itching even more to get out wheeling

    I would think less of you if you did not perform such an action. Hot shower and cold beer is a win.
