Getting Fj in two weeks. Do I need to order new bolt for uca's. I dont want to beat on vehicle to remove bolts. Can someone post up part numbers if needed? Thanks.

Not sure the context but if you are changing the UCAs, you just slide the bolt right out, change UCA and then slide the bolt back in.

If you're talking about the upper pivot bolt, there's no need to cut it or beat on it, they come right out and you can re-use them. You might have to remove the battery to get to the driver's side. You'll also want a ball-joint puller to get the old arms off.

Thanks for info. Maybe I was reading about new tacoma uca's that the bolt was tough to get out. I didnt think about ball joint puller, thanks.
