If you've done over 100K/62M then you should think about changing these

Changed mine and fitted new SuperPro ARB Bushes and the Tezz feels nice and tight again, my old bushes were 4mm larger on the outer edges so were very worn. Folk seem to forget that droplinks and bushes are a service part and often get forgotten. Great mod to accompany any suspension mod.

Where'd you get the bushes from Baz and which ones did you replace?

been thinking about changing mine a replacing the bushes aswell, I've had none genuine item's in the past fensport, ebay and motor factors and find that they are poorly made although they state oem quality they're not I find that the ball joint is loose or the thread/nut's are cheap and they strip before you can tighten them, anyone know how much toyota drop links are wether it's worth the extra
or am I the only one having poor parts

Genuine drop links are expensive. I priced them off Nick first before I went down the aftermarket route. The ones I got from eBay where good quality. Found the ones I brought from the same seller :arrow: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/IS200-IS300-99-05 ... 5d2c1dbe1d
