Re: Aftermarket LCAs....do yours have better adjustment range than my Mevotechs?
At about 285K miles, I replaced my stock LCAs with Mevotechs....all new Toyota cams, adjusters etc.
The truck now has all of 300K on it and the LCA bushings are SHOT!!!!!!
Apparently the Mevojunks use some kind of Chinese trash bushings......!
I've priced new Toyota LCA bushings at about 60 bucks each and lower ball joints at over 100 bucks each.
I too am running the 5100 on the highest setting and the TC UCAs.
So I'm thinking of also replacing the springs.
What an expensive PITA!!!!!
According to DJ, to get the longest service life out our trucks front ends, we should keep them at the stock height.
This keeps these components (LCA bushings and lower ball joints) operating in the same "plane".
There is a lot less stress on them compared to when the LCA (ball joint end) is running below the LCA bushings (as in lifted).
But I want mine lifted a bit!
O well.....what's that old saying?
