Steering rack mount bushes

Postby YTB4x4 on Wed, 25 Mar 2020 6:19 +0000

Hey cobbers, pulling my front diff out of my N80 as im going twin lock, my steering rack mounts have been flogged for a while and while my diff is out its the perfect time to swap them out. only problem is that toyota dont sell the bush. and no after market option listed for N80. GETTING MIXED ANSWERS. anyone changed theirs before and know what part. number i need?? or what model car? (got told n70 bushes fit but them also got told otherwise but majority of the people)

Hey YTB4x4, welcome to the forum... a good question. Toyo dont sell the parts as they claim they are too hard to remove and install.

You could probably do a parts cross-ref at partsouq... but I just googled and superpro do a kit for the n80: https://www.superpro.com.au/find/superp ... -999501774

I had the bushes changed in my 200 by Pedders for one of their parts. Give them a go.

They did the UCA and suggested that the bushes get changed because the original have segmented rubber which walks around and makes the car wander. The new ones are solid rubber. They are certainly hard to get out as the bush they showed me was smashed in, steel outside casing. I would imagine that the Hilux would be the same or similar.
