    Hey guys has anyone ever installed 5100's on the front of a 2nd gen prerunner with out removing the tie rod and lower ball joint? On the prerunner it looks like you have enough room to just undo the sway bar. But not sure. If any one was able to do it can you let me know. If I don't have to remove all the other stuff that would be great. any and all input welcome.

    I just removed sway bar link and that's it. You have to pry the assembly out but you can get it out.

    Remove sway bar link from spindle, and loosen the upper control arm nut to take tension off of the bushings. Just remember to tighten the UCA nut to 85ftlbs with the wheels on the ground.

    I bought Bilsteins for my truck and had great tech service from Bilsteinoffroad.com. I would check with them and see if the tech department can help you out with your questions too.

    I put in 5100s on my 4x4 and i had to wedge a 2x4 and pull the a-arm down a bit to make some extra room. Then rotate it and brought it out by the brake line. It was kind of a pain but, do able.
