Lower Front Control Arm Bushes


GSSPORT

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

It looks like my front lower control arm bushes have gone :crybaby: . I have a GS MKII on a 2000 plate. Would anyone out there have any ideas as to whether I can just replace the bushes (and if so where I can get them from) or if I will need to replace the arms??

Any help greatly appreciated. :)

see below for replacement bushes...

those are polyurethane so harder than getting brand new control arms.

if you do get new control arms, get them from states, exchange rate is excellent right now

oh, you might want to replace lower ball joints too at same time, balljoints are not expensive. 100 bucks for a set

Thanks Maneesh,

This is really useful. Am I correct in thinking that I won't need to control arms and the bushes advertised in the link can be used to replace the old bushes on the lower control arms?

Thanks

I have recently replaced my lower arm bushes (TRD ones) no need replace the arm, however my clunking noise when going over uneven roads is still there...?? I had also changed the upper control arms, suspension, drop link, ball joints, rod assy tie, end steering rack and boot steering rack.

yes, the bushes from daizen mean you don't need to buy new arms, but i think you have to burn the old ones out first before putting the new ones in..the ride will be a bit harsher with the daizen bushes tho, as the lexus bushes are rubber.

you could try and get uprated trd bushes from japan, as they are rubber,,

Hi Maneesh,

Mine is a GS Sport and I find its ride is a little on the harsh side already, and I wouldn't really want it to be any harsher. So the softer the better. Any ideas where I can get the rubber ones from japan??

Many Thanks

i think they are uprated race spec bushes, so maybe too firm for you again. prob best to order the control arms from the states..

My front control lower arm bushes have worn out. Lexus prices for the complete arm unit with bushes are way over the top. Am considering buying bushes from TM ngineering in USA. Has anyone tried them? Did this make the driving and suspension a lot better? Does the car return back to the same driving feel as if it was a Lexus arm/bushes fitted? What other advice can u give regarding this decision?

Where in London, or East London can I get the bushes fitted for a reasonable price? Many Thks Charley
