Just wanted to update this with my experience of purchasing superpro offset lower control arms. I received my package and opened it and noticed some rust on both of the lcas. Contacted super pro and theyíve given me three options 1. Is to exchange them, 2. Is a $100 off if I choose to keep the ones with rust on them, or 3. Return for full refund. Bummed that there is rust on the new lcas I am happy to see that they stand by there product and are willing to help me out.

I'd send them back just to get rid of the "spatter".

Yeah I'm leaning toward sending them back because the spatter is quite bad on them. I asked if they could look at the replacements before they send them out to me and they said they would double check them.

Total shot in the dark, but anyone have a set of stock LCA they are getting rid of? Condition doesn't matter - I plan on rebuilding for a stock(ish) suspension setup.

I may be willing to let mine go to you. But it won't be for a month or two. Not are what your timeline looks like.

I have mine available right now. They're damn near pristine too, just need bushings (for sure) and ball joints (maybe) replaced. I'll make you a deal for sure.

Update finally put the lowers on. Holy crap what a difference these made. My old ones were hammered with 140k on them so kind of a hard comparison. But the truck is buttery smooth now. Will update next week when I get the alignment done. But based on feel 10/10 would recommend as of now.

anyone running these LCA's can confirm how much these offset the tire forward for me by chance?
Also, I see that the alignment bolts are larger than factory.. does anyone know if this would work with the cam tab eliminator kits..? Assuming the answer is no? Which I guess isn't the end of the world.. I would just need to pick up a larger bolt set to run through these and open up the hole spacing in the plates..

I just did the math on for this when I installed them this past weekend. Measuring the centerline off-set at each bushing and then converting that to a total forward offset angle, I trig'd out that the double-offset LCA's should shift the wheel hub centerline forward by about .4 inches.

Taking a reference measurement between the frame and brake calipers before and after installation confirmed this.

Also confirmed by the fact that my tires no longer rub in reverse with the steering at full lock, and the resulting gap is just over .3 inches.

As for compatibility with the tab eliminator kit, I cannot comment.

I can confirm my non measured findings from
doing this install 2 weeks ago as well. Didnít pull actual measurements, but combination of these lca and the spc uca I got a healthy shift forward which also got me away from the body mount in reverse that was previously eating into it a good amount with the 37s.


Iím running the cam eliminator kit. What I will say is that you CAN make it work, but itís not an easy fit if youíre like me and still wanted to get the max inboard setting in the front and max outboard setting in the back bushing. There is so much offset with the double offset bushing that both of the rear tabs had to be installed in their ďcenterĒ setting. There is just too much angle from the double offset.

Took a little finagling but I got it to work.

Even without using the cam eliminator kit, the double offset bushings in these LCA's do not make it easy to fish those LCA bolts through and get all the cams fully seated between their frame tabs.

I ended up installing mine with both the forward (camber) and rear (caster) cam bolts at their max outboard setting. I also have SPC UCA's at their "neutral" or "OEM+2deg" caster setting, and with the ball joints clamped at the outermost ends of their adjustment slots.

With that combo I was able to get everything dialed in to a very nice alignment spec with +4.0 Deg. Caster, Neutral Camber, and +0.2 Deg. toe.

Yup, same here on the spc adjustment , I was amazed at how much camber I needed to pull out lol

Hi all. New to the forum. I recently bought a 2007 Limited. Lower control arms are seized and need to be replaced.

I would love to go OEM but Canadian Toyota prices are insane. New control arms and all cam hardware will cost $1400...just for parts. Superpro looks like a nice alternative and good quality. I can get them shipped to me in Canada for about $950 (on sale).

How has everyone liked their Superpro LCA? Any issues or concerns?

Thanks

They work just fine. You shouldn't have any concerns running them at all.
