I'd assume so (although I've never looked at an LCA skid)

Sweet. I welded up all the seams and deleted the sway bar mounts off my LCAs on my Taco when I was putting the bushings. Something like this crossed my mind, but didn't end up plating it at all.

they can definitely be shimmed for wear as needed as time passes.
No need for the question mark after that statement, simple and it works.
If I'm thinking right scissor's and shim stock would cure any wear issues, that's cool.

- that's what I'm thinking as well. I decided not to really overengineer it for adjustable preload via a nut because the costs were getting crazy for a simple pivot.

- that said, some genius will show up with a simple solution that will blow everything else out of the water and make everyone feel stupid, I bet... lol.

for those who have welded these, are you applying weldable primer to the backside for corrosion?

i have done this in the past to certain parts and its worked well. just wondering if others are doing this.

thanks again keith for making these. will buy with a PCK.

I used it on the rear control arm reinforcement parts that overlap.
Better than nothing, Primers usually absorb moisture, 3rd coast rust not a issue.

that is good to know. i live in a climate that can be very wet/dry/dusty/snowy all in the course of a week, so i need to ensure all steel that will corrode is protected; even if i cant see it.

For the best weld you don't what to weld through a coating, it will burn off at the point of weld and
beyond a certain distance anyway.
On the parts that have air gap between them I'd drill some holes coat after welding, allow air to dry out things clean out the dirt spray rust preventitive in. Why frames are open design.
Notice how LCA's are a open design.

while i would ususlly agree with you RE welding on paint. im talking about weldable primer. its made to be welded through so the blind material can be coated. ive used it in the past on subframe bracing with great success. you paint prior to welding anything so when you are done and paint over the weld there is 0% exposed metal.

you will never get 100% coverage if you 'drill' into your freshly braced arms. not to mention possibly weakening the part you juuuuuust stiffened up.

sure we may have 'open designed' frames/LCAs, but theyre coated.... to prevent rust.

Thanks for making GREAT products for our GREAT 4runners.

thought i would add these pics to this thread to show how i dealt with rust prevention on these reinforcement kits (mostly the top where the'E' can expose the elements to the bare steel). the weldable primer i bought was by SEM and it was the non copper variant. the guy couldnt explain the difference to me, despite rattling over a bunch of other useless facts, so i just went with the regular variant.

basically i just laid down the reinforcement plates, 'traced' them with a sharpie and laid some frog tape approx 1/8" inside the line of the sharpie. i then wirewheeled the sharpie off and had my room mate weld them in. you could probably get away with doing just the top plates, but i did the bottoms as well.






no its not going to win any weldporn awards, but i can say these plates are now a part of the LCA and they arent going anywhere

Looks like your roommate welds pretty damn good to me. But, I'm not a welder. Good roommate to have I'd say.
