Thanks for sharing. Your rebuild is looking great. Its a good reminder to me to check my entire rear assembly when I begin my restoration in a couple months time.

As for the bushings, here is another alternative, from right up in Canada: https://www.xiiimotorsports.com/product ... ushing-kit

Disasembled the other knuckle and stripped it down. I only did one side at a time because of the parking brake. Even after 15 years of owning this car I still have problems getting it back together without using the opposite side as a reference.

Also started to reassemble some stuff since I'm sick of having all the parts laying around my house. I was giving it extra time for the paint to cure since it takes like 3-4 weeks for acrylic enamel.

The other thing I'm currently investigating are backing plates. There are a ton of 04-07 highlander backing plates on ebay, rock auto, amazon etc. For around $130 fora pair. I think they will work with a combination of the highlander parking brake, rotor, 2001 highlander hub, and stock caliper. Not 100% sure on this.

Edit: just want to add the holes on the backing plate look like at least 2 will need to be redrilled.
