Default 1997 sc300 bushing kits?

On Ebay I see lots of bushing kits for 92-96 SC300's but non for 97 and up?? What changed from 97 up in the suspensions? I'm looking at doing the rear U/L control arms, shock bushing, traction rod ect. Anyone steer me where to get a kit or where to order individually? Poly I would think.
Thanks
BJ

Supposedly there was a redesign of the front lower control arm bushings for 97-00 cars. That's why those lower control arms have different part numbers than the 92-96s. Supposedly it was done to increase lifespan but that pretty much means nothing today since the youngest SC is 18 years old lol

Many Thanks Brian! I was racking my brain trying to find the reason why. Would of been so much better if the ball joints were replaceable too! Guess there just is not enough $$ in
it for after market to do so.

Figured I'll post here instead of making a new thread. I'm also looking for new front lca bushing kit for my 99 sc400 but all of the ones I see are for the 92-96 only. Where can I find them at?

Does anyone knows the dimensions for the 97+ SC lca bushings? I emailed SuperPro and apparently they don't know the dimensions either, they wanted me to give them the dimensions which I can't bc it's still on the car lol.
