Hi guys
I've been putting it off long enough and i need to decide on what to do with bushings.

I am looking for bushings only, not whole control arm replacements. I am also looking for ball joints. For now I am only doing the front.

So the way I see it these are my options:

Figs $160 for 4 pieces but this solves the FRONT UPPERS ONLY.

Febest - they have everything but I am under how much of each part I need. Heres a list

https://shop.febest.eu/catalog/produ...r-arm-tab-574/

https://shop.febest.eu/catalog/produ...r-arm-tab-576/

https://shop.febest.eu/arm-bushing-f...m-tab-546.html - I lknow if I go with Febest I would need 4 of these.. for the front upper arms.

https://shop.febest.eu/arm-bushing-l...m-tab-484.html

BALL JOINTS: https://shop.febest.eu/ball-joint-0120-usf40f.html I cannot tell from the diagram if.. all the ball joints are the same... and how many I need for the front... do any other brands make better ball joints?
 
So so any other reputable manufacturer of bushings other than febest? 
 

THANKS GUYS

can you not find Toyota manufactured replacement stuff instead ?

I really haven't a clue if that's available or not but if it is I would think you have a better chance of longevity and being  ' fit for purpose '   tbh

Have you tried Amayama in Japan ?

Indeed, Febest are an OEM manufacturer...

Just a word of warning, I tried to change just bushes in the bottom arms of the 460, the arm broke before the bushing came out... they are very awkward to do...!!
