    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if anyone has ordered aftermarket LCA's from Moog. Part numbers RK621293 and RK621294. It looks like they come with the bushings and ball joint, and for $108 a side, seems like a pretty incredible deal. My LCA cams are seized into the bushings, so I was considering replacing the OEM control arm with the Moog one and then rebuilding the OEM at my leisure. Anyone ordered these before? I don't really want to "downgrade" the LCA, so I'm wondering if the Moog ones are on par with the OEM LCA. Thanks for any feedback.

    I used their Cam/Alignment bolts on my 4Runner... Very good product.

    I made the mistake of rebuilding my LCA on the 4Runner. I should have ordered the rebuilt all assembled LCA instead.

    I know this is old …Bump.
    OP did you ever go this route? Seems to me like doing a whole assembled LCA will be much less PITA than replacing bushings or Lower ball joints. Not to mention just the bushings are around $89 for poly. I to wonder about the quality of the LCA and lower ball joints and bushings however. I don't want to be doing this again in 40,000 miles.

    Installed my ECGS today and while I was down there I took a closer look at my LCA cam hardware...and I must say they are royally fuxz0red. Read through the whole "DIY LCA bushing..." thread and am torn between cutting my bushings and replacing with Mevotech or similar, or potentially buying a whole LCA assembly. If I did that, I would probably go MOOG in hopes that their entire assembly together is quality. I understand people have been having problems with the front MOOG bushings fitting properly in OEM LCAs and having too much slop in them.

    I have read very few accounts of people running the complete MOOG LCAs. Did anyone else pick a set of these up recently and give them a try?
    Thanks,
    Josh

    tmp_3158-edited_1457286386488-740715064.jpg I'm kinda wondering the same . there is some at rock auto for $97 complete LCA with bushings some by Moog and some mevotech. My bushings are seized and I want to get new tires and an alignment. BUT,, I've got a Toytec lift kit 5100 all around with eibachs coil overs set at .85 " which I didn't think they were set that low but anyways that's what they set at" and with AAL in rear and tsb. There is now a 2" drop in front cause I put a ranch hand brush gaurd and warn V8000 winch and CBI hidden hitch on. The question is what to set coilovers at and or add a shock spacer? And if these aftermarket LCA s are any good? I do alot of hunting on rough roads and some offroading. Or go with an LR LCA for big$? Thanks for the input.

    Reserected from the dead.
    I did, got them thru Autozone. Lifetime warranty. I anti sieze everything before assembly. If I have to replace them, I got the warranty and things should come apart fairly easy. Not a bad job if you aren't rusted solid.
