Hi guys
Can anyone advise if the 2wd upper and lower control arms are the same as the 4wd ones on an 05-15 Hilux.
TIA

Geez Gus, would have thought someone would have responded by now....

I have no idea but I'm commenting to keep your post relevant.

Having said that, posting a pic of your truck might help as I think our year models might be different to yours!

Welcome Gus! :thumbup:

A lot of the guys have been away over the holiday season, so someone that knows may still respond. I would just check with your local agents, should be easy for them to simply compare part numbers. :winkx:

I'm a bit surprised at the lack of response as well.
Looking at the upper arms on my 2wd and arms on a 4wd the 2wd ones look to be built stronger as the tubing is complete, the tubing on the 4wd ones are just 1/2 pressings.
Visually they both appear to have the same fixing points on the chassis, I haven't been able to get 2 side by side so I don't know if they are different lengths to the ball joint.
I want to make some long arms hence why I need to know the difference.

Now I'm curious Angus. Why longer arms? :scratch:

I'm sure you've already considered it, but if you lengthen the arms, top and bottom must be lengthened equally otherwise the camber will be out.
