    It's just time consuming but no, nothing is really hard. Make sure you get yourself a big cutting disc for the grinder or you get some carbide sawzall blades cause the sleeves and bolts for the LCAs are hardened and eat regular cheapo blades for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    I did this a few weeks ago, following Timmah's videos. Well, I only used part 1, but maybe you're better than I am. He's on a 4runner, but it's the same stuff.

    Seems like you're on the right track. Since you're loading arms off the truck... definitely watch the video to prepare yourself for dealing with the steering rack. It interferes with the cam bolt on the driver's side.

    It was the first time I had the rack off, so I struggled. If you've had that off before... then yeah, you'll probably be fine.

    I guess I might as well order bushings for that too.

    Those are relatively cheap and easy, at least. 14mm deep socket and a hammer to get them out, and a regular c-clamp will get the new ones in if you can't get 'em with hand strength.

    It's the right part number. I have four sitting here on the floor.

    It's the right number for my truck.

    If you are on a budget (or just want to save a little cash), consider buying your parts here. For a set of 4 of all 3 pieces, I can save about $25 over the Amazon route.

    Puts me ahead enough for some leafspring bushings, thanks


    Anyone got a problem with energy suspension bushings for this?

    or would you just order from alcan?

    Maybe they’re the same thing

    They were off @se7enine old truck. I think most of its life was in Reno and some Tahoe. Not 100% sure it's full time line.

    Nice. Shipping always seems to bite me on the online dealer orders. These are expensive and light enough though that it's :thumbsup:

    I need to do those too. All four corners of the truck are really squeaky right now. I was going to go Alcan, and order a new set of leafs at the same time (but install them later when mine wear out).
