Opt Offroad Reinforced Lower Control Arms (RLCA)
We've teamed up with Freel Good Performance to bring you the ultimate set of reinforced OEM lower control arms for 3rd Gen 4Runners and 1st Gen Tacomas*!
It's no secret that our 20 year-old lower control arms are known to crack due to rust or harsh use. Eimkeith has the solution, but it requires a lot of welding.
LCA bushings tend to get neglected when they wear out. This leads to alignment issues, sloppy steering, rough ride quality, and bad tire wear. We know that Whiteline has the best replacement kit out there, but pressing the old bushings out and new bushings in can be a giant pain, especially when rust comes in to play.
For those that don't have the ability (or time) to do all the welding and press work themselves, you've come to the right spot. This is the best bang-for-buck out there for 96-02 4Runner and 95.5-04 Tacoma* reinforced lower control arms. Please keep in mind if you are installing these arms on a Tacoma, you will need to swap your swaybar endlinks over so they are compatible with the 3rd Gen 4Runner arms (*1st Gen Tacoma arms can’t be reinforced with the LCAR, but the arms themselves are cross compatible between vehicles. The only difference in fitment is the sway bar endlink mount).
Current Lead Time: 1-2 weeks
