Come again??

Why are you getting new LCAs? The LCA bolt is a huge pain in the ass to get off.

Put PB Break or some equivalent rust/antiseizing compound all over the bolts, the head and the end sticking out the front. Do this for a couple of hours/days, whatever. Take the old bolts out, I recommend having 4 new bolts to put back in from Honda, odds are your going to break a few. Put everything back together. The four I had trouble with were the ones at the bottom of the strut and where the LCA meets up with the rear subframe. I had to replace 3 of the 4 bolts. I coated the new ones in antiseize cream and put them back in to help with removal (if I ever have to again).

I don't understand why you want to replace the lower ones also. You may need the SPC rear upper adjustable control arm. That will help you adjust to get rid of the butterfly (whatever that is?) Personally, I like to keep the butterflies around, girls seem to like them....
