I don't recommend Vivid Racing. You can look at their reviews and see a lot that says they don't update you on your parts without you contacting them, this is 100% true.

It was 2 weeks before any contact was made after ordering, which I had to initiate. Another 2 weeks went by after initial contact, saying they would update me, no word back. After a month, I finally hear something, in which they ask me to pay more $$ for shipping to get it to me in the next 3-4 days from Australia. I defer and they offer to cover it (mind you this is a month after ordering). Never received tracking number [they put a signature on everything fyi] until it I got a letter on my door from FedEx saying I had missed a delivery (surprise!).

Pretty much everything that is covered in reviews, sadly happen with me as well. Ignore the nice site, order elsewhere. In the end, they stepped up and did the right thing but this has clearly been going on for awhile based on their reviews.

So far great customer service from Apache Offroad!

They showed up yesterday!

I haven’t opened them up yet, may not actually need them.

I had a PPI done on my new 4Runner (bought site unseen from Montana) and the mechanic identified the LCA bushings as blown out. When the truck showed up, I found the “blown bushing” seems to be a loose bolt. I’ll be ripping it apart soon to confirm, but I may be selling these.

Installed the SuperPro’s last night.

Extremely impressed. The inner sleeve is captured, but not bonded to the poly. With the alignment cams torqued, the arms swing freely. Everything fit great, and so far I’m very impressed with the quality.

I installed these with JBA UCA’s.

I requested ~4.2 degrees of caster and slight negative camber. They got it just right! All 4 alignment cams are almost centered. Tons of adjustment in any direction.

That's really good to hear. With them being able to move freely up and down without any bushing resistance like the stock ones, the truck "should" ride better up front with those.

Do you feel like it changed the ride at all?

I honestly couldn’t say. I’ve only owned the truck a week, ~100 miles before swapping. Before I swapped them the alignment was trash too.

I can say that the truck rides great now though.

I ordered the SuperPro bushing kit for my LCA's and now have them. Will install soon. Reason being just what rivman says, frees up the LCA movement as it should be.

Thanks for sharing these! Been searching options for awhile.

Just ordered the standard replacement Superpros from Apache Offroad as they are a little cheaper than the adjustable ones. I now have JBA UCAs on the way so caster will not be an issue with my 2.5 inch lift.

Was about to have my LCAs rebuilt with poly bushings but this will be about the same cost or less than paying my mechanic hourly to rebuild my old crusty ones. I like that these have beefier cam bolts and are built for offroad use.

The bushing kit requires different cam bolts?

I bought the full lower control arms not the bushing kit.

After a few months with them, how do you like the SuperPros?

Leaning towards buying a pair.

What made you go with ~4.2 degrees of caster and slight negative camber?

At least in the drifting world if you have a slight negative camber when the wheels are pointed straight ahead then at full lock the tire will be “flat” with the ground. Although normally you’d see -1.5 or “less” degrees of camber to actually make a difference.

Thank you.

How are you liking the SuperPros thus far?

I'm installing the Superpro double offset LCA right now. I got them in fine however, I'm having clearance issues with the outboard CVboot clamp. I'm using a worm drive clamp and at full drop (when on jack stands) the worm drive housing hits the lower control arm. I think when compressed it will be ok but I'd hate to be wheeling and at full drop break off my clamp and have my boot come lose.

anyone have this issue? You think an alignment will fix this or do i need to get the OEM clamp which is probably not as tall?

Not my pic or actual pic. Just a pic I found online for illustration purposes. I'll take a pic of my rig later.
