Bushings! Finally, the first castings have been made.




My Supra is now the 2nd Supra in history to receive a MKIV specific set of bushings, first being Craig Lieberman's Hero 1 Supra.


















Old control arm bushings being pressed out.










Brand new control arm for the right side







OE bushings removed











New bushings installed!






























One-off Energy Suspension MKIV Rack and Pinion bushings. Only one set exists, and they're right here:














Just in time... the MKIV was getting a bit sad/surrounded with junk!

Upper control arm bushings were black because Energy Suspension decided to rush it at the end... but they are polyurethane nonetheless















Subframe coming back together...
















Rear subframe







Brand new OEM rear right control arm










Old arm was bent prior to my ownership of the car







Left side was still straight








In total, the rear subframe got bushings for the 3 main arms per side.

Looming ahead was the transport of these subframes back to the chassis.


My friend just happened to get a little red Toyota pickup that I immediately fell in love with, and decided to get one of my own.


Found this 1989 model, 22R-E, 5spd, 205k on the odo. Paid $2,100.


























Together, the little worker Toyotas gathered parts for Queen Toyota waiting at home.
















Unloaded at home via the trusty engine hoist













I love cruising around in the little pickup, which has been nicknamed the "putt putt pickup."

Simple green, a brush, and some scotchbrite...










Armed with several jacks, we went to work...








































And finally, the last of the Dynamatting is done to my liking. This was the very last of two full dynamat xtreme kits.

I think any big Supra fan would agree that they liked the Fast and Furious Hero 1 car, the one which the original Energy Suspension bushings were made for.


About a week after my subframes were completed with polyurethane bushings, I got a call from a guy named Dave asking for bushings on a 94 Supra.



I explained to him how we do not make them yet, and how we just barely made the first production-ready set for my own car.


He was taken back when I told him that the only two cars with Energy Suspension bushings were Hero 1 and my own 94 Supra.



Turned out, he knew Craig personally, and he was building his own replica of the hero 1 car. He really wanted these bushings for his own car, to truly replicate Hero 1. He was known as FNFDave online.


Moments later, Craig Lieberman himself calls me. It was then that I realized I had to make this happen.



I took this opportunity to make a promotional run of the new Supra bushing set and install them on this Hero 1 replica car.



There were some problems figuring out who would perform the labor of the arm removal, and not many shops were willing to touch the F&F replica. Our team at work were too busy already.



I literally woke in the middle of the night and yelled out, RAD INDUSTRIES!


I called Rad Dan Burkett and he was willing to help out with the project.



Craig Lieberman approved and we got the ball rolling.


Here she is... drove my MK3 that day just to be part a of the Supra crew!








(Wing is stored to protect the actor's signatures)


















Traveling on the 5fwy south. Eyes everywhere, gazing.













Joe from RAD Industries backing it up into the shop.






You can't make this stuff up...
























Not long after getting the car on the rack, Craig Lieberman arrives in his 2015 R35 GTR










He showed us around the car and we realized just how accurate of a replica this car was.







Dan was totally stoked... we were all pretty much in disbelief.










The arms were removed for us and Craig gave us some great video for the new product release.


















Will post up the video and photos of the completed arms later on, everyone was extremely cool to work with. It was great meeting all of them.




More to come next time, thank you
