Check out this perfect example installation image from TacomaWorld forum member Taconator_.

The installation was performed by Shmellmopwho, and was done without disassembling any of the suspension. When asked if the factory control arm bushings got warm, Shmellmopwho described his install process as follows:

Quote from: Shmellmopwho
"Dude first of all, those things fit awesome. Very easy install!

I just was careful to not weld too hot and not weld too much in the same area at the same time. I alternated from an area near the bushing to a joint away from the bushing and back and forth. The way I welded it, I didn’t have a ton of welding time near the bushing. Felt like the places I welded it were gonna make it plenty strong enough for keeping the cam tabs strong and braced."

Simple to install without altering your alignment or suspension. That's what we like to hear! :beerchug:

Let us know how your install process went because we'd love to share your story! :wave:
