    Interesting, I didn't know that.

    I went to the stealership and they quoted me something like $65 for one and $73 for the other (just on the left LCA) this isn't even for the UCA. I'm probably going to pay upwards of $400 for a complete set left and right... :frusty:

    Satoshi'd grill. blacked out badges. aftermarket sound system. De-chromed and color matched. OME 885s + Dakars with 3rd leaf removed. LR UCAs. Scs stealth 6 with 285 duratracs. BAMF sliders
    Look for whole LCAs with bushings in the B/S/T section, will save you alot of work to just swap lcas if your bushings are seized

    Or head to energy suspension and pick up their polyurethane kit for FJ cruisers...they use the same arms we do. I've wanted someone to give that kit a try for a while now.

    If your lower LCA bolts/bushings are seized like mine were its going to be a PITA to even remove them since we couldnt even remove the sleeves from the bushing/LCA. Had to chop them off with a torch. Glad I bought brand new LCAs. Check out ebay there is a guy who sells OEM LCAs pretty cheap. I paid 327 a piece. When even online dealership oem parts I couldnt get under 400 or more.

    Check out parts.camelbacktoyota.com. I bought the complete set of LCA bushings from them not too long ago and they were cheaper than you were quoted. I'm not sure why you are looking to replace your bushings but a lot of us have had issues with the hardware rusting inside the bushings, forcing you to cut the LCA bolts to remove. This then leads you to require all new hardware and that's expensive in itself.

    FYI, the complete LCA goes for around $265/side from Camelback and with that it comes with new bushings and a new ball joint as well. Just something to consider.

    Called energy suspension up today. The rep said that he could not confirm that the kit would fit the Tacomas, but he said that Tacoma was 3rd in line for trial phase behind the Super Duty and one other. I offered to test them out for them, but he needed me to be in SoCal, oh well.

    No longer looking for bushings... A set of UCA's or LCA's will do

    Anyone? :cookiemonster:
