Suspension / Bushings HALP!!

Postby Angrysquirel » Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:22 am

Hi All - This is kind of a double post - this is in the "New Members" area as well.
I'm new to the site as I just recently purchased a JDM 93 ST185 GT Four.
Its a really nice car, but has had some issues.
I have already replaced the Rad, Rad Fan, Thermostat, Serpentine and CV Axle. So the last thing that is leaving this sexy car garaged begging to be driven is one damn annoying little - impossible to get bushing...
I have looked on RHDJapan.com, gone to Toyota (tried to sell me an entire spindle assy) and can't find it anywhere.
Anyways, the bushing is off one of the arms connected to the spindle assy on the rear left tire.
It causes the rear tire to have play side to side and obviously effects driving lol.
Does anyone know of this little bushing, has anyone purchased a kit?
I hope this was the right place to post this - thanks all!

Common issue on our cars for those spherical bearings to wear out, this walk through should help.

In the illustration where buddy is pressing the bushing out, it shows a different arm than the one I am referring to. Are we sure that the bushings are the same for all the arms there?

Off topic I know but; Gary what did you paint your hubs with and how has it held up?

I bought the car like that - the caliper paint didnt hold up well at all it would appear. I will be re-doing these this summer with "High Heat" engine enamel.
Just an FYI to the OP - bushing fixed the issues - all is well - thanks to all for your advice! :notworthy:

Im going to zombie this thread by asking for an opinion on these;
http://www.amazon.com/Febest-Toyota-Bus ... B00C6MW49A

Theyre lighter on the wallet, but would they be "worth" the savings over the Toyota ones?

Or in another way, do they look like they would hold up or are they cheaper for a reason?

But then dealer parts are often pricey compared to aftermarket offerings.. so opinions?
