Answer 2
I replaced the lower control arms new using Toyota Supras for around $600 for the parts and had a local mechanic replace. The bushings are so labor intensive it's not worth it. There is a guy on line who has a machine that does it for about $400. . I found a Toyota dealer in Mass on ebay. Regarding your problem and it will probalby be a cheaper fix. Sway bars. I had those replaced and they solved that loud sound when I hit a bump on my 92 SC400 -
Answer 3
DID THEY REPLACE THE STRUT MOUNTS? VERY IMPORTANT.. A LOT OF PEOPLE GET STRUTS REPLACED BUT THE MOUNTS ARE ALSO BAD.. THEY HOLD THE STRUT IN PLACE AT THE TOP. -
