    Looking for an alternative to replacing the complete track bar/panhard. No interest in using poly so does anyone made a rubber factory style replacement bushing worth a :poop:

    Found some Febest on line but this comes from the guy that scream only OEM bushing when it comes to all 80 series control links.

    Any feedback positive or neg on 100 series Febest track bar bushings

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Febest-T...MOTpF9DoCIIKafcyTTkLuiaWsGbVxXqBoC5aoQAvD_BwE

    New track bar from Toyota ~$222
    2 Febest bushings ~$27 and I have a press:hmm:

    I know @cruiseroutfit stocks those bushings for 80 series, have you checked with him on the 100 stuff?

    I've used febst for a number of bushings on my 2000. Only had a problem with one so far, but that was more than likely from what and how I was doing something with the truck. But I personally wouldn't blink an eye at using them for the pan hard bar. In fact that's one of the only original bushings left on my truck, I should probably order some too.

    Yup, we stock em all. OEM and aftermarket:

    100 Series Control Arm & Panhard Bushings
    Front Upper Control Arm
    - Aftermarket Rubber Part# SUSB48632AFT - $28.50/each (4 required/vehicle)
    Front Upper Control Arm - OEM Toyota Rubber Part# SUSB48632 - $62.50/each (4 required/vehicle)
    Front LCA (Front Side) - Aftermarket Rubber Part# SUSB48654AFT - $28.50/each (2 required/vehicle)
    Front LCA (Front Side) - OEM Toyota Rubber Part# SUSB48654 - $64.50/each (2 required/vehicle)
    Front LCA (Back Side) - Aftermarket Rubber Part# SUSB48655AFT - $38.50/each (2 required/vehicle)
    Front LCA (Back Side) - OEM Toyota Rubber Part# SUSB48655 - $67.50/each (2 required/vehicle)
    Rear Upper Control Arm - Aftermarket Rubber Part# SUSB60090AFT - $36.50/each (4 required/vehicle)
    Rear Upper Control Arm - OEM Toyota Rubber Part# SUSB60090OEM - $42.50/each (4 req/vehicle)
    Rear Lower Control Arm - Aftermarket Rubber Part# SUSB60100AFT - $38.50/each (4 required/vehicle)
    Rear Lower Control Arm - OEM Toyota Rubber Part# SUSB600110OEM - $58.50/each (4 req/veh)
    Rear Track Bar/Panhard - Aftermarket Rubber Part# SUSB48740AFT - $34.50/each (2 required/vehicle)

    The 100 Rear Track bar is the only spot we haven't sourced an OEM option as well. Aftermarket only. Ours are coming from a supplier we've used for 20+ years out of India, they make suspension parts for many companies in the Toyota realm. We've been selling their 80 Series control/panhard bushings for 5+ years with good results so we were comfortable adding them to the system when we flushed out our 100 offerings too.


    We've used some random Febest bushings for different applications and had OK results, some of their rubber is junk and deteriorates such as their upper coil spring pads. My 2 cents :D

    Through convoluted cross-referencing, I have suspicions the panhard bushing from a '03+ GX470 might work but I have not tried it yet. :meh:

    Interesting. My supplier shows a different aftermarket part number for the GX470 (well Prado 120) than they do the 100/470. Not to say that won't fit as it very well may. Keep us posted!

    @LandCruiserPhil Thanks for being the guinea pig! If by chance they don't work, I'd consider fabricating a panhard bar that does use replaceable OEM bushings.

    Fwiw, our aftermarket: Part# SUSB48740AFT dimensions
    A: 14.30
    B: 36.25
    C: 39.90
    D: 49.90

    These are confirmed fit on a 100 rear. So, your numbers are VERY close and I can't imagine why they wouldn't work. Sounds like I need to get some OE's ordered and pass on the aftermarket. :D Generally aftermarkets are 25-50% the cost of the OE but in this case my landed cost is HIGHER than the OE :eek:

    Nice sleuthing!

    Big thanks to @hoser for the research:clap:

    Good timing I need to finalize the panhard riser bracket Im working with Delta on for the 100 series so the bar will be off already. Like it was meant to be.
