    So some people have started asking for a Stock Width Replacement LCA for our trucks. Makes perfect sense.

    I have started contacted fabrication shops to see who would be willing to make some for us or do a GB or anything.

    So far i have reached out to these shops:

    -MCM Fab - Responded, would build for $1500 a pair
    -LSK - Waiting to hear back
    -Trac - InVery interested in coming up with something. Small shop though, will take a while.
    -Dirt King - In. Needs 5 buyers up front to commit $1211.25+shipping. Comes with limit straps, stock bump moutns, delrin bushings with grease fittings. Fully boxed
    -SMP Fab - Out, not wanting to do it
    -Camburg - In Looking to see something come out within a year
    -Totalchaos - Out have already considered it, they don't believe the cost is worth it
    -Allpro - Waiting to hear back

    I'll update any info i find out from people.

    If you are SERIOUSLY interested. Please let me know in here and i'll keep a list going.

    Serious buyers:

    @Digiratus
    @BDN
    @Silver02Taco
    @outdoorAZ
    @at_olw

    Have a shop you think should be asked? Let me know.

    As you already know, I would buy an aftermarket, stock width LCA right now if I could. Why should the 2nd gen guys be the only ones to have all the fun.

    Don't have the funds to say I would buy them now. But definitely interested since mine will probably need replaced sometime down the road in the near future.

    Yes and I would much rather spend the money for something stronger that will last.

    Keep in mind they need to come complete with new bushing hardware and preferably not the stock ones that are such a bitch to replace with that metal sleeve and all the heartache that comes with it.
    I'd like to see the Whitesides bushings in them.
    I don't feel they need the alignment cam hardware as the OEM stuff seems to be the way to go for fine adjustment and is readily available from the dealer, and they work with the Whitesides bushings.
    And I want to see the stock lower ball joint used unless something better is available, but no taking steps backwards. The stock lower ball joint does not have to be included, just able to be used.

    Is that too much to ask for?

    I think just regular Polly or Derilin bushings would be best. My LT ones are just poly and where easy to install and will be easy to replace. They also work with a stock LBJ.

    I figure thats all they need.

    As long as they last. Way too often "easy to replace" means you will be replacing them...often..

    Are you guys on any other forums? The more interest in these the better chances of it actually happening.

    They would work with 3rd gen 4runners as well right?

    Not really. I mean, its like getting poly bushings for the leafs or UCAs..simple to press in and simple to press out. Hard compound and last.

    Im on ExpoP. Yes techincally they would fit t4r 3rd gens.

    Im going to wait to hear back from people and see what their first thoughts are before asking about a GB. Then i think we can spread it to other forums.
