Default Megan's Rear Upper Control Arm

Need some assistance on getting this rear upper control arm installed for my GS350. I'm lowered on NF210's and the camber is just whacked. I'm comfortable with the rear but the SPC upper ball joint leaves my in limbo to install.

1. Has anyone installed this and how complicated was it?
2. Do you have someone in mind to get this installed? (Orange County, Tustin area)

Thanks!

Its very simple to install, just take off the arm measure out the new arm to the old one and install.

When taking off the old arm the part where the tie rod is may spin on you. I just used an impact gun and it was a breeze to install

Ok guys, just got the rear upper control arm installed for the GS350, now seems like you need to purchase the Megan's toe arm too, did anyone else have the same experience?

You do not need to buy toe arms, especially for a mild drop from the NF's. Theres plenty of toe adjustment in the stock arms.

I would suggest finding a new alignment shop, because you might have something damaged from and accident or a really worn bushing

Did you ever get the fronts installed? Did you do it yourself?
