    So on a stock setup, is the UCA and shock what's stopping the whole wheel from the fore/aft movement? With how easily it looks to move the LCA in that direction the UCA must see some serious forces no? I'd love to do LT but uniballs on a daily with road salt winters wouldn't be the greatest setup :(.

    I thought the same thing, but ended up going stock width on my FJ.

    Didn't want to deal with the added width and extra goodies that go along with it (extended axles, tie rods, fiberglass, etc.)

    With a little shock tuning the setup was amazing. I'd do it again on the Tundra

    It’s a little exaggerated in the video because only one mounting point is in the vise. If both mounting points were used, as it is on a vehicle, he probably wouldn’t have been able to even move it. There is movement on a vehicle in real world use, just not as much as you see here. Having said that, the TC upper and lower arms definitely eliminate most fore and aft wheel movement.

    You make a good point, still hard to swallow.

    They should at least come with bypass mount. Pricey but nice

    That's what I was hoping for. I noticed they do make a bypass race setup for other vehicles.

    I see that, so is the pictured lca from a different vehicle? Any option for a extra hoop? I am also running RW wheels and will never run wheel spacers.

    When everything is bolted together you won't have as much play. Let me see if I can uncover a video I had of stock LCAs with the bushings blown out. You can see the movement in the arm. I'll post up if I can find it.

    I wanted to clarify a little. The TOTAL CHAOS Toyota Tundra LCA does have dual shock capability. If you choose to run a secondary bypass shock, you will need to purchase the TOTAL CHAOS Shock Hoops. Together you will have everything needed to mount a shock like this:

    The picture posted does not have the bypass shock mount on it. So is it included or is that something that has to be added? I only ask because most don't have the ability to weld that on themselves and would prefer it be already built into the LCA. The TC upper mount would need to be welded but there are a couple of bolt on upper bypass mounts for the DIY without having to weld.

    If you use another brand hoop(bolt-on), possibility of not fitting/lining up with the lower mount?

    1.25" wheel spacers are required if you're running a secondary bypass shock with factory wheels.

    The bypass shock mounts directly to the LCA, here is a different angle :)

    Only welding required is on the Upper Shock Hoops

    Is there a reason there isn't a "gusset" on the secondary for the LCA? Looks like just a longer bolt is used.
