    After my lift was installed, I noticed my upper upper ball joint boots were torn and that there seemed to be an excessive amount of squeaking coming from that area. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Do I need to get new upper control arms because I don't see a way to get the ball joints themselves out of the UCA?

    If your BJ is wore and exhibits play it will need to be replaced and is available separately. The joint is likely just dry and grease free. An upper ball joint boot repair kit is available from Toyota that includes a new boot a grease.
