    they look like the pieces that usually go in the front of the rear trailing arm, to adjust the toe of the rear suspension... dont know why its there though?

    well, they are LCA's, but the pices in the middle look like the link for the rear traling arm... where they're at now, isn't that where the shock bolts to the LCA?

    Yes, that is where you mount the shocks to. That peice was just bugging me because the other set of LCA's did not have them. Thanks, and even better, this time It came with 2 bolts and everyone in the area is sold out of LCA bolts.

    That's a compensator arm. Like B16 said it mounts to the front link of the trailing arm. Holds the rear trailing arm to the chassis where the toe adjustment bolt is. He must have bolted it there to keep the relative components together.
