These bushings replace the staked rubber bushings on the Front Lower Control arm on the front mount of the SC300/400, Supra and Soarer. All SC 92-2000 models with 49.5 O.D. when you remove the factory bushing cup. Early models (92-96) can alternately retain the OE bushing cup and replace with bushing SC_BSH_LCAFR_SP1650K.
Set includes 2-Bushing sets to replace both sides. Total 2 bushings locations, 4 halves
A bearing C-Clamp is strongly suggested for ease of install. A press will work even better.
Unbolt LCA via two bolts, may require removal of under covers.
Remove old bushing via any means possible but most effectively using a ball joint tool or press to drive out center tube then remove rubber (can burn them out). Retain bearing cup that is installed in the arm on factory bushings. Clean bushing cup so no rubber remains.
Lube new poly bushing and press in first, fill voids and coat the lead in transition.
Press in Complete Bearing clamshells lubing the lead front edge.
Press in crush tube second, it may want to push the second bushing out but hold it with pressure so that the tube goes through. You can use a backer board or table to support the load.
Lube sides of bushings when reinstalling to allow easier fit into the aluminum subframe. Install factory bolt and sight adjust camber. Torque to spec.
