    Cant find anyone who sells any Upper and Lower Control Arm bushings in Polyurethane for my 07.

    I have called and emailed everyone and nobody has the replacements. They are doing the nice squeak everyone loves so much.

    Yea, no kidding. 8 years after the 2nd gen Tacoma came out and after millions of units sold in the US alone they finally are going to offer a poly bushing kit. How stupid.

    The bushings above are far superior to energy suspension .. The bushing is fused to the outer shell. I have them on test on a Tacoma in South America..no issues.

    Your reco is on factory backorder, with no expected availability date.
    These are $105 for just the UCA.
    That seem pricey.
    I am interested on researching more info on the product though.

    This is not on back order from Autowarehouse on eBay look for:

    W53312 Whiteline Front Lower Control Arm Bushing Kit Both Positions - Toyota

    They are $165.00 for a set. Before they were available here on the US I had to get them from Austrailia for $400.00 a set.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what are the advantages of polyurethane bushings?

    They are non binding so if you use a longer travel Coilover the bushing will not tear. They also tighten up the arms removing the bushing flex.

    I have a 06 TRD Sport. I purchase the below Energy Suspension poly bushing set to replace my factory rubber bushings while my tacoma was getting its frame replaced. All of the bushing fit except for the upper control arms. The Toyota dealer is trying get me to buy the Toyota rubber bushings which are $170, which is over half of what I paid for the whole poly set. Is the the Toyota dealer doing something wrong when they install the bushing, or am I missing a piece? Is the there a different Poly bushing that I can get of the UCA?
