3 Total Chaos provided their new stock length replacement lower control arms and secondary shock hoops that work on my FJs, on ’05-and-newer Tacomas, and on ’03-to-’09 4Runners. Much like the upper arms, these lowers also replace the factory ball joints with 1-inch uniballs. The lower pivots include replaceable urethane bushings with zerk fitting for easy maintenance. The reason I chose stock width upper and lower arms is to eliminate the need of fiberglass fenders, extended steering links and axles. I want to increase the vehicle’s ability without limiting where I can fit my truck. The lower arms are internally gusseted and boxed with an integrated 1/4-inch-thick steel skidplate. Both arms have locations for a primary coilover shock mount and secondary shock mount. The kit also includes secondary shock hoops and factory bump stop relocation brackets.
