still slightly confused...-irked-

ok, then... as i understand it, the SPF1906K is the rear D-shaped bushing for any tercel/paseo/starlet...

87-90 tercels (& starlet) require the SPF1905K round 2-piece front bushing because of the larger mounting...

and SPF1888K is the round 2-piece front bushing for 91+ tercels & paseos...

please correct me if this is wrong...

Correct! I did some major league searching all of today and I could not find the link from the Whiteline site to the company in Michigan that sells these bushes. Possibly 185performance or pdm racing can supply them.

sorry I asked... really. I meen at the first of this post I said "Anyone know for sure what # fits the 1991 tercel ??"

This post could now confuse the makers of the bushings them selves. What ppl think or heard is not helpful somethimes. Don't meen to be hateful but there are many other posts discussing this matter and that's whty I started a new one aking if anyone knew for sure ....

I"m going to get some myself, wrong or not, and keep buying them till I get the right ones. THEN and only then when I KNOW I will post what fits.

First of all I post WHAT I KNOW! If you dont want input then dont ask questions. I have a 87 Terc and I know that the SPF1905K front bushing fits my control arms and I know the SPF1906K rear bushing fits all TERSEO. GT_REVVA'S car is what a 95 and he found out that the SPF1905K were too large for the control arms on that car.

The question was " Anyone know for sure what # fits the 1991 tercel ??"


I'm not singeling anyone out and a place to get them was good info. Thanks.

If you read my first post it shouldn't be hard to see where the frusteration comes from. There are many other threads talkin about this and I said I had looked at them.

What ppl know is helpful. What ppl think or heard, in this situation is useless and clutter.

GT_REVVA's coment should have been the last .

my apologies for adding to the clutter & confusion...
i was just trying to sort details and part #'s out...
because, in a month or two, this information will be lost like everything else on this board... important info doesn't get saved around here... you gotta sort it out & write it down for yourself...
anyways... sorry...

Super Pro bushings installed ...


So I got the bushings in the mail last week and they fit like a glove ( or a proper fitted bushing even ) Part # are in the first post.

Anyone that wants to hear my fun story read on.... It starts wtih a broken control arm bolt.

Removing things gets alot harder when you drive threw salt and snow for 15 years. I've always know this but I got a reminder in the past few days. The bolt in the front of the control arm was so rusted in place it would not turn out and eventually broke off flush in the body.... After trying heat, oil and easy outs , and everything failing, I had to drill out 3 spot welds grind off one weld and bend back a piece of the frame to get at the nut. After beating the old nut off the body I installed the arm welded the new nut in place, trying not to melt the new bushing. Then I had to hammer the piece I bent out back, weld it along the seam and fill the holes where the spot welds were...

Tho this may sound like fun... I advise you not to do it for kicks :)

Good news is that it's all good now and one step closer to being completely mobile.

I had to do the same thing. Except the nut was spinning so I couldn't back the bolt out. I had to cut through the bolt and part of the bushing and then cut a hole in the frame on the opposite side of the nut and ...

Don't use an impact wrench on these bolts.

Thanks for confirming the part #

i had to do the same thing, too... i'm detecting a pattern, here...
mine stripped the nut, so i had to cut open the frame, remove the old nut, weld in a new nut, close frame & weld shut... took almost 3 hours just to change the bushings...
