    1JZ-FSE Questions

    Not worth it. fse is for economy not power. Its a redheaded stepchild in the JZ family so no telling what regular maintenance parts you can't get. 11:1 compression and only makes about as much as a 2jzge. I'd look into going 2JZGE, You can NA-t it if you want to make more power and they're tons cheaper, in my experience there's at least a couple in every wrecking yard I've gone to and parts are available at every auto store. Either that or 1uzfe.
  2. regular roll center adjust, corrects lower control arm angle to help eliminate bump-steer Ackerman adjust gives near zero Ackerman so front wheels don't fight each other at extreme counter-steer gives parallel steering NCRCA: Negative Camber roll center adjust, same as regular roll center adjust but adds negative camber to wheel by pushing hub out same as longer lower control arms would do. I do believe they are aluminum with steel locating dowels

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    yaris one is way too small. Compared the 4runner one mentioned here to a tacoma one, 4runner being 43.35mm and tacoma 44mm diameter looks like it might do the trick tapers are a bit different though but no telling the 4 runner one actually fit how it should in the upright anyhow so the tacoma one could be correct entirely. 4runner 43310-39016: http://www.jikiu.com/catalogue/374950 tacoma 43310-09015: http://www.jikiu.com/catalogue/374949
  5. Well this looks like the perfect fit if dimensions listed are accurate for the part: JIKIU - BH21195B http://www.jikiu.com/catalogue/679972/ -edit- Verified dimensions (Jikiu — BH21195 — 48*38*14) Japanese made too!
  6. Yeah Gordo, I was thinking the ID might be able to be reamed out to size otherwise running a smaller diameter bolt would mean the arm that attaches to it with its 14mm hole could introduce slop on the bigger hole of the arm. Its apparently the bushing used in the JZX90 and JZX100 in the same palce so I wouldn't worry too much about the bolt diameter not being strong enough. JZX90/100 arms might be interchangeable here but then you're running into buying more parts unless you're already going aftermarket adjustable pieces anyhow.
  7. Decided to go google hunting and figured I would check if the LS400 bush might be similar and it looks like it... Seems like the Russians figured this out for us https://forums.drom.ru/toyota-mark-ii-chaser-cresta/t1151579528-p2.html#post1103205325 Can't seem to find a valid toyota part number but since you all like chinamade parts Febest TAB-168Z or Masuma RU-365. Dimensions listed have a bit of discrepancy but overall are the right Diameter and close to the same width, ID is smaller bore. Febest site seems to indicate that it also fits a mercedes so possibly an oem part available there.
  8. There's 42210-20010 which fits the is300...
  9. Does a decent job when you scale and have reference measurements if you're just looking for general size. Red lines are all 36mm referenced off of 42210-14010 O.D. and ruler in picture, green line is O.D. of compared part (Toyota: SU003-00370 Subaru: 20257XA000) which comes to almost 40mm which is a bit bigger than the 38mm it needs to be so it give me a good idea that it's not worth making the trip to the dealer or spend the money to buy the part and measure.
  10. After some photoshop scaling it looks like the OD of the bushing is almost 40mm so it wont fit without machining the bore of the upright anyhow... looked close enough to fool me.
  11. @demesio I think you're referring to the 42210-14010 supra bushings, If you even bothered to read my post you'd notice I'm referencing a different part number as I think it might fit our uprights without an adapter sleeve.
  12. Bringing this back from the dead since I thought it was the most relevant topic for mx83 lower control arm bushings. I was installing some coilovers on my buddies FR-s and noticed they have a very similar looking bushing. Its been used in quite a bit of subaru's too. I'll have to order one and see how it measures up but here's the part number and a pic in case anyone else wants to try it out before me. Toyota: SU003-00370 Subaru: 20257XA000
  13. meganracing arms supposedly coming out in Jan 2019... We'll see, they said Fall 2018 but that has come and gone. They look like the Hardrace ones posted above.

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    43308-59035 (MOOG K500118) looks like it might work for a factory replacement ruca ball joint. -Edit- I'll have to get one and see and let you all know. Pounded one out of a Yaris at the junkyard now I just gotta compare to the cressida RUCA ball joint I have on my spare subframe when I get the chance. That is unless someone has one measured already...
