    So I have been through hell changing out bushings and then just basically have put new part after new part in as I took things apart. Finally got the old bushings out of the lower control arm and there are several parts that do not seem to be in the kit I received from rock auto.

    There is a missing insert for the center of the bushing and the sleeve I guess that is the outside. I cut the arms out so these parts are not usable and I cant seem to find them in pats guides anywhere.

    Any help is appreciated.
    I thought I was almost done!!!!!

    No one officially makeds aftermarket poly pushing for the lower control arms for first gen tacomas other than energy suspension. considering you cut yours out those arent an option. This is what im running. they dont officially advertise that they are made for tacomas but I have been running them for over a year now no problems

    Better pic of one for sale. At least this one appears to have the metal sleeve you are asking about. I am not recommending this part (never bought it), just showing you the pic as reference.
