    Started lifting my tundra last night and have a lower control bolt seized in the arm. Local deal does not stock the cam bolt or the arm. Any suggestions? Rest of suspension is completely torn out and need to get truck moved.

    Talk to @LOTSOFTOYS. He has most likely dealt with this.

    Leave it in and put your suspension back together. Won't be able to align it properly but it'll roll.... u need to cut the arm out on each side of that bushing. 2 options... either press in a new busJing once the arms out and install with lots of anti sieze with a new eccentric and bolt or u replace the arm as a complete part once the old one is cut out. Happens all the time... toyota doesn't lube the eccentrics from the factory. Check my build. When I did mine, I reinforced my arms while I had the bushings pressed out.

    Yeah I did just bushings on mine... dealer has them, I'm sure there are aftermarket options as well... you should have marked them how they were before eu took them out.... helps to keep the alignment close. Go have it aligned right away after u get it rolling again.
