SUPRA LOWER CONTROL ARMS
They will NOT fit a UZZ31, as there is no cast lug for attaching the height control rods to. Nor does it fit a 32, as they don't have the extra mounting lug required. They DO fit ALL 30 series Soarers with coil suspension.
The Supra bushes are also a firmer design, giving you a more "Locked down" feel to the suspension.
The Supra LCA's are heaps cheaper to buy from Toyota.
Part numbers for the JZ80are as follows:
48068-14080 (RH.Lower control arm 5/93 - 5/96) 48069-14080 (LH.Lower control arm 5/93 - 5/96)
48068-14090 (RH.Lower control arm 5/96 - ) 48069-14090 (LH.Lower control arm 5/96 - )
Note: The later ones are purported to be cast alluminum, and are a LOT dearer than the early cast iron ones, however, they are also a direct fit. }
Got the car back with the spacers put in, but I am betting my left nut (I may be wrong), that they have put them in back the front. Isn't the edge that is kinda wavy meant to be facing the bush, and the flat side facing the cross member?
Would the spacer being back the front, be anything to worry about, as mentioned above I am getting new LCAs from the states and will be doing a changeover MYSELF within the next few months...but in the meantime should I worry?
Also the steering was not centred inside the car, and there are three large grease marks on the carmats inside the driver footwell...NOT happy
Thanks Stuart for the advice about Andrew, the stuffed up thing about it as well, was that I had Vlamos bushes in my old LCAs and now they are lost as they can't be pressed out without damaging them...only got approx 40,000km out of them too
