  1. Hmm it says it should fit but not guaranteed! I'll have a look again and compare. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  2. I guess if the Century bushes are wider they are compressed as they are inserted making them firmer? This is them right? https://www.amayama.com/en/part/toyota/4867440051 I might see if I can replace the whole arm. Has anyody got the part numbers for the lower arms as a whole? Sorry, this is the lower arm bush I was talking about: https://www.amayama.com/en/part/toyota/4865450010 The ARB bushes are nice and cheap then! I have a cracking upon the weight of the car shifting at low speed and when turning in to junctions which is the UCA according to Lexus then also a different noise over speed bumps a groaning sound which I think could be the other bushes. So I definitely need to get some renewing sorted! Thanks for the advice I can pass that onto my garage when I get the parts delivered and fitted. I am going to try and order the original UCA's and hope that Amayama can supply. Appreciate your help and advice! 🙂
  3. Rockauto only have aftermarket for the 1993 also but they are much cheaper I just haven't heard of the brands! Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  4. Hi, Thanks for this post! Would you mind posting the part numbers for the all the bits replaced? I have some creaking and cracking in the front suspension and want to replace all the perishable items. I've got genuine drop links ready to fit. The front strut cushions 48674-40051 you mentioned and the lower arm bushes 48654-50010 in my basket on Amayama. I'm also going to replace the upper control arms with Blue Print parts as it doesn't look like Amayama can supply these anymore. I've got the mounting insulator on order also as I've heard replacing it makes a difference but not suspension related I know 12371-50010. What I'm missing is the ARB bushes. Anything else to give the suspension an overhaul? Thanks. Alexander. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  5. Oh gosh. One there is bang on my problem. Is there anybody in the UK that repairs these? Anybody had one done? Ta! Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  6. Tried a new MAF from Canada on eBay and it just caused engine light to come on and hunting revs even after resetting the ECU. Trying one from China next and also having the old one tested with a multi meter. Can't believe if this is the issue how difficult it is to put right. If it isn't the MAF then I'm worried about what it could be. Have also changed the fuel filter and fuel pump was mentioned but the garage didn't have the equipment to be able to test the pressure. Argh! Has anybody else had these sort of issues? Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  7. Not sure what kind of bolts are supposed to be here!? [emoji848] Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  8. Thank you Rupert. Yes and underneath the headlights the corner brackets weren't right. One was just lose and sat there and the other missing altogether! If anybody can provide an image of them, that would be great! Have a good weekend all. Alexander.. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  9. Thank you. I'm not impressed and they're very apologetic but hey just to the job right first time. That's what you're paid for eh? I want it perfect and won't settle for less. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  10. It looks much neater on the later models but they don't have screws all along like the early models seem to need. I hope it is just fitted the wrong way around. They also left out the brackets on the bumper corners under the headlights so I have to inspect that when it comes back. Sigh. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  11. We're talking a 1993 LS here. There are holes in the bumper itself. Like in the 2 examples. Maybe they changed the design later? Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  12. No holes at all! What year is this? Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  13. I would love to take you up on this offer for some beer tokens Steve! Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
