Re: Lower Control Arm replacement

$1200 for a brake job!!!! Brand new pads and 2 new rotors only cost me $180. Brake job is easiest thing to do on a FJ.

Re: Lower Control Arm replacement

for anyone in the future doing this. i used a fireproof blanket and stuffed it up above the LCA to block heat from hitting anything i didn't want it to get to, and cut the bolts out that way. there's barely enough room. I didn't cut the bolt heads off, rather in between the mounting points and the LCA. you'll burn a little rubber.

fire blanket is necessary.

Re: Lower Control Arm replacement

If you are doing the LCA replacement because of the lower ball joints.... it's possible to press out the joints and replace them with a Moog joint.

I had my mechanic do this. He did it with the LCA's still on the FJ.

Suck it up... it's only -40

Re: Lower Control Arm replacement

I replaced the upper and lower control arms on my 2007 model with Total Chaos CAís with uniball joints. My FJ was lifted but left with the stock control arms by the previous owner. The change of angle prematurely wore out the stock ball joints and bushings.

I first changed the uppers about three years ago, changing both in about 3 - 4 hours. The uppers are easier than lowers as you donít have the lower strut connection to have to bolt in with both frame pivot connections.

A year or so later I bit the bullet with the LCAís, which took about 5 - 6 hours working by myself. It was a little frustrating as I had to compress the strut with a second floor jack enough to fit both frame pivots, and the lower strut connection in place at the same time. Anyway, I got it done and didnít risk my Christianity too much - I did say a prayer asking forgiveness when I finished though just to be safe!

The Total Chaos are a supreme fit with neoprene greasable bushings and uniball joints impregnated with high-tech aerospace-type lubrication. They donít require lubrication until they near the end of their lifespan but I go ahead and shoot them with Tri-Flow (recommended lube) when I grease the bushings at each 7,500 mile oil change (full synthetic).

Not sure why you need a $1,200 brake job but siding with others posting here I definitely suggest you at least investigate doing the brakes yourself and saving potentially almost $1,000.
