Lower Control Arm Bushings

1999, 5spd, SR5, 295k

Some discrepancies from Toyota as to which part number goes where. The majority of parts diaphragms show this configuration. With parts in hand I'm about to proceed. Just want to confirm others have seen the same errors and came to the same conclusion.
thanks, S.

I am upgrading to the polyurethane bushings from energy suspension. Everyone seems to generally say that all your thinking is the way to go.

Plus I think a total set for the front is like $50 or so.

Those part numbers are correct, I installed the same numbered bushing front and rear noticing there was a difference , had to press back out order and install the new correct bushings.
I did talk to Camelback and they did confirm there was a difference in the 2

I had a shop with 6 lifts replace both LCA that I purchased at Amazon. I also did the sway bars. A mechanic with 20 years experience and a 9/5 job working at this alignment center said they were needed. I have a 2005 SR5 with 150,000 miles on bad roads here in the Bahamas.

AM parts are probably fine for these parts - by good manufacturer. The bushings come installed by professionals, and a back yarder can't compete with their expertise and experience IMO.

Sway bars were $25. I did these at the same time.

I forget where I got my 2 lower control arms with bushings, but they were not expensive. They were a perfect fit. 2005 Toyota 4Runner Replacement Control Arms – CARiD.com

Thanks @Poorboy64 , that's exactly the input I was looking for. Some Toyota parts diagrams, and parts humans that read them, are incorrectly specifying one part number for LH (Drivers) and the other part number for RH (Passenger). Others show it correctly as you have confirmed, and yes when holding them in your had you can see the difference. Thanks All, S.

It's a really really tough job if you've never done it before. My best mechanic couldn't complete the job in a reasonably fast manner and therefore I did it myself to save a ton of money on labor costs. The cam bolts and the metal sleeves in the bushings were frozen. Ended having to take the LCA's to a shop and get them air hammered out. They wouldn't come out a torch and a 20t press either just to give you an idea. I spent nearly 40 hours of total time from start to finish. Worst thing I've ever done. I nearly sold the 4runner after I got done because I hated that experience that much.

You might want to rethink your decision for Energy Suspension if you haven't bought them yet. Using the Whiteline bushings is way more straight forward and less labor that doesn't require you to salvage pieces from the old bushings.

Here you go:

Whiteline Polyurethane Bushings - Part #W53377A
Amazon.com: Whiteline W53377A Black Bushing Kit: Automotive

The Part 1 video below shows the steps to remove and reinstall the LCAs and showcases the bottle jack method to remove the old bushings. Part 2 shows how you can cut out one or more of the cam adjuster sleeves if you found they are rusted in the sleeve of the bushing and it shows another technique for the bushing removal using a hydraulic press and bearing splitter.

Good Luck!
