Lower control arms

As I'm nearing 300,000 miles, LCA's probably could be replaced soon. Wondering if anyone has had any luck with aftermarket arms or are OEM Toyota arms recommended only? Also need new hardware as well. Will any 5th gens swap? Thanks in advance!

I put the LCAs on my 2005 SR5 (150,000) a few years ago. They came with two bushings, and the mechanic at the Alignment shop said I should get them. Ours were AM, and worked great. Check out sway bars too... they are cheap and easy to find.

I just got done doing OEM arm and all new OEM hardware. Make sure you buy Diablo Demon Carbide sawzall blades for cutting the old bolts. Thank me later.

Go OEM for LCAs. Lots of threads on problems with aftermarket.

Do you happen to have a list of all the oem part numbers for the arm, bushings, and hardware? Planning on taking care of this in the near future.

LCA Driver Side - 48069-60010
LCA Passenger - 48068-60010

Front Cam Adjuster Sleeve - 48409-60020
Front Cam Adjuster Nut - 48452-35020
Front Cam Adjuster Bolt - 90119-14120

Rear Cam Bolt - 48190-60020
Rear Cam Nut - 90179-14069
Rear Cam Plate - 48198-6011

Minus the LCAs themselves, you will need 2 of everything listed above to do both sides. Make sure you get those aforementioned blades, and also don't forget to put anti seize on the new parts going in so that they can be adjusted in the future without freezing up.

Also you don't need to purchase bushings separately, if buying OEM LCAs they come assembled

I installed a 1Aauto arm on one side and a used OEM arm on the other in 2017 and no problems so far. The 1Aauto comes with bushings installed and ball joint installed. I added some additional grease to the BJ before install.
I used all OEM alignment adjust hardware.
I don't off-road so that may have an effect on long term reliability and durability, but for $130 its worth a try.

5th Gen?

I'm casually looking as well but have been looking at the 5th Gen take-offs. I thought they should work with the 4th Gen. Price looks good when I've seen them on FB. Anyone can confirm 5th Gen LCA?

I bought an aftermarket. It comes with the bushing and balljoint. I don't off-road much so it's good. No issues so far. Saved a lot on cost.

If you live in the salt belt, do not even consider uniball aftermarket lcas..

if you want to spend money and get an upgrade consider these..

those look awesome and sure they perform great, but I'll have to pass.

Ebay LCA Lower control arms


I got the ebay LCA and i use my 4Runner for more off roading then the average person on here i bet. I take it to trails at least 2x a week. And these are serious trails. I had no complaints at all.

Only issue installing these on my 4Runner was that one of the cam bolts was seized so i had to cut it off.
