    I'm replacing my upper and lower control arm bushings and am a little confused on what I need. I've looked through all the threads but just want to make sure I'm ordering the right kits.
    For the lower bushings: Whiteline W5337A
    For the upper bushings: ES 8.3115G

    I'm also replacing my steering rack and outer tie rod ends with new OEM (there is a 25% off sale right now I think at SE Toyota online parts dealers). I was going to go with the Whiteline W12978 bushing kit.

    Does this sound right? Thanks

    Those ES bushings appear to be for lower control arms according to the reviews section. Not very helpful that the seller lists them as "front" control arm bushings.

    I thought it included both the upper and lower control are bushings? I think you're right after looking again.

    Where can I find upper control arm bushings?

    Great site, thank you for all the information.
