    Just found out my 2012 RockWarrior with 50k miles has seized lower control arm adjustment cams. These need anti seize on them as soon as possible to prevent them from seizing. Common issue with Tundra and other vehicles. Just wasn't quick enough getting it done.

    Add anti-seize to your LCA adjustment cams now!!!!!

    This will cost upwards of $1500 in parts and labor if new LCAs are needed.

    Suppose I'd better get on that, I remember the experience with my Tacoma. I had to use a die grinder to get them suckers out.

    Ouch. Sold my Tacoma with one seized. Alignment came in within spec without having to remove it though

    No because you have to align it after you take those out

    I'm relatively new to the truck, so pardon my ignorance .... assume this means that, at a minimum, a bolt/nut has to be loosened, and the end result is alignment will be necessary afterward?

    Yes after you pull these out and add anti-seize you will need to get an alignment.

    Just formed over to have the alignment shop to replace the passenger side. The truck looks sweet after 5100 level, but this sours the taste a little.
