Help with installing Toytec Boss Aluma 2.0 on KDSS 4Runner

Today I attempted the install of my lift, but I had to give up. Before I completely throw in the towel and pay for the install, I wanted to see if anyone had any insight for me. I removed the upper control arms, I opened up the KDSS shutter valves, I removed the front sway bar at the KDSS piston and hard mount, and I removed the bolts from the lower control arm ball joints. I was able to get the boss Aluma 2.0 driver side strut assembly in place, but the bottom bolt hole was way too low, and I could not get the lower control arm to go any lower. Any ideas to either compress the strut assembly or lower the lower control arm a little further? I did try compressing the spring, but it didn't seem to compress the whole strut assembly.

Thanks

From what I can tell there are only two additional options. I can detach the sway bar at the LCA, but will that allow the LCA to drop more? Or, I read that if you loosen the rear LCA cam bolt the LCA can drop 180 degrees, but they tend to cease and might not be a good idea to do myself?

I assume you've solved your problem by now but yes, mark the position of your LCA cams and then loosen them up and push the arm down so you can line up the bolt hole, then reassemble.

Thanks. Not sure why this isn't mentioned in any instructions or videos, but seems like what I have to do.

Or use a pry bar to lower the UCA's more.
