My bushes are done for and I want to replace all suspension arms. Is this the complete list? And no, not interested in just going poly bush.


48610-19025 - Front; Upper, right arm
48630-19025 - Front; Upper, left arm
90119-10079, PNC# 48069D - Front; lower, left arm
90119-10079, PNC# 48068H - Front; lower, right arm
48710-14110, PNC# 48710A - Rear; lower, right arm no 1
48710-14110, PNC# 48720A - Rear; lower, left arm no 1
48730-14030 - Rear, lower, right arm no 2
48730-14060 - Rear, lower, left arm no 2


And is this part of the suspension? Well, it is, but is it part of what I want, when I want to change all bushes?


48780-14030 - Rear, strut bar. I guess I need two here.

Im not sure on the numbers but i'd be changing the strut rods (x 2) as well if your doing all the rest.

Where are you buying your parts from and can you post up what your paying as i might be able
to save you some money.

If its anything like mine you might also need some new eccentric adjusters, i had to cut i think 3 of mine
off as they were seized solid.

I think the strut rod is the one i call strut bar.. Right?

I will post as soon as I have pricing. I'm guessing 2000 roughly..

My adjusters are fine. I have had the alignment done several times, no worries there :-)

Heres a pic when i changed mine, the part number is visable on the strut rod and
is the same number you posted

Full retail would be over 2000 here so depends what your prices
are like in Denmark and what discount you can get

Wish I had the cash to change all the arms on mine, sure its expensive but its a once in the cars lifetime job and it will transform the ride and handling totally :)

Get a geo set up done first would be my advice and if you use a good place it would be obvious
to them if you needed new arms.

The problem isn't always excessive play which will be spotted on the mot, mine had
seized adjusters due to no grease etc being used when the car was built.

Before actually ordering the parts, I'm thinking about retorquing my subframe bolts as I've found info on this could help an annoying sound I'm having.

Doing this, I'm guessing we are talking about all the bolts that connect the suspension arms to the subframe, right?
And this should be done while the car has its weight on the wheels.
This got done by CW two years ago when changing my suspension, so I'm not expecting great things from it.

Or are we talking the bolts that actually hold the subframe to the chassis?

No, the subframe bolts hold the subframe to the chassis :)

Expensive but the best money you'll ever spend on the car. I was shocked when I did mine just how much of a difference it made, it completely transformed the ride quality, grip and handling.

If I was to buy another Supra now I'd optimise the suspension and brakes before spending any money on 'performance' upgrades.

Thats exactly the same thing I've heard from every single person I've asked about it. It must to 10+ that I've heard that from. And not even one has said anything else than it was the best money they ever spend on the car..

Well, high hopes then..
