That's all good to know. Now that I know that the sub frames are all the same from 00-11 I can just go ahead and get the bolt that's for the 05. I always thought that the sub frames changed between 04 and 05 models. Thanks for all of the help guys.

The only change they made was reinforced control arms in the rear around the sway bar attachment.

Okay well one thing that no one has said is you WILL need an alignment after this the LCA adjust the rear toe in and toe out. So unless you have access to a garage with a alignment rack or like me go to school for auto tech and have one there you need to bring it in and get it done right away.

Yep I'm getting the alignment done in the morning. I change a lca without a problem after I picked up the adjuster bolt. Thanks again for all of your guys help. I plan on doing some major upgrades to my zts really soon so I will make sure that I post pics of it on here.
