    Yep, they've been fine. There's really no input anyone will give other than they work fine and are better than the OEM rubber. Only problem someone could have is if they got the wrong part or installed wrong

    From this thread: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...gy-suspension-whiteline.394935/#post-10912095

    Perhaps this this only applies to the 1st gens(??), but it piqued my curiosity/concern during my research, and now I'm wondering if anyone can comment on the quoted issue who has installed the Whiteline W53312 bushings on their 2nd gen, specifically those who take their truck offroad and abuse it?

    I wheel my truck hard regularly, so I want a durable solution that is free from potential alignment issues!

    Wasn't aware that this was a concern until you posted. I'm not sure what to think about whether this is an issue worth worrying about.

    I put in these bushings in December, 2016 and only had the problem of coming home from a wheeling trip with the steering wheel cockeyed once since I did it. Used to be a more regular thing for me. Flattened my cam tabs off road while on stock bushings, so had them bent back and welded for strength just prior to upgrading the bushings. Total Chaos cam tab gussets would be the next thing for me if it happens again with the Whitelines.

    damn that was a quick reply! I should have specified that I am also using the Whiteline bushing kit that @Crom linked in the first post. picture below is the fatter bolt with a plastic sleeve and metal insert for the bushing. this is meant to go into the smaller front bushing. something doesnt look right to me. the plastic is sticking past the metal sleeve insert

    If it’s anything like the moog kit, then it won’t last. Some people had problems with the washer rounding out and losing the alignment. I would just go with OEM hardware. Buy everything from a dealer and return what you don’t need, some of your hardware should be useable even if you have to cut.

    @Crom and/or @EDDO I am planning on rebuilding my LCAs too using Whiteline bushings. My understanding when pressing in the new bushings is the side of the bushings with numbers face outside? Or is it the thicker side bushing faces outward?

    Did you have any issues using the factory bottle jack? I'll probably have to do this and that's the only jack that I have.

    Can someone please confirm the whiteline w53312 bushings will fit my 2013 Offroad? Everything I’ve read here indicates they will, but Amazon is telling me otherwise so I want to be sure before dropping the cash.
