I got the upper arms from a Lexus dealer off their eBay site for $204.00 each plus shipping.
Yes they are pricey but well worth the $$$. My car rides so nice now.
Got to check my wheel bearing though, looks like the are going bad, have ha rough binding feel when turned by hand.

Do you have part numbers for the Supra Arms and Mounts by any chance?

Engine mounts L&R sides P/N 12360-46111
LCA P/N 48068-14080 R side, 48069-14080 L side.
I have a brand new Lexus driver side LCA I will be posting for sale, I compared it to the Supra unit and it is identical just a different P/N. If I had know I would have just ordered the right supra LCA and save some money.

I spent a little time the last few days on the paint, buffing out swirl marks with Perfect-It 39062 and a Ultrafine Foam Polishing Pad. I think it turned out nice.

This is the rear quarter closeup, before and after.

^ Looks like you removed the black plastic vent and duct taped over the opening to down below?

Has anyone figured out exactly what purpose they serve? I assume it has something to do with relieving pressure for fuel tank safety, but that's about all I've got. Inside the black plastic unit is two rows of hinged flaps that are normally closed and swing open easily, such as from a pressure change. Hopefully, leaving just one in place in your case is sufficient for whatever venting they accomplish.

I think the the vents are to relieve cabin pressure. They open when you close the doors or trunk. Every car I've owned has them in the trunk (with or without a fuel tank in there).

That makes sense. I've never seen them in my other cars, but maybe I haven't dug deep enough.

They take up an awful lot of space for such a simple device, but it would be tough to make them much smaller without reducing the volume of venting and/or allowing the elements in from below.

I only had one on the passenger side which I always thought was a little strange. I removed it also when we did the stereo. Only thing that happens is it makes the doors a little harder to shut. Other than that no problem.

Drove her 999.2 miles round trip from Chino, CA to Tucson, AZ and back. Drove like a champ, averaging 80-100 mph and even getting up to 125 for a while with the A/C on the whole time blowing ice cold. LOVE THIS CAR. Did I mention I have 252,000 miles on the clock
