Hey Arch,

I had never heard of RareParts.com

Do they have a good reputation?

https://shop.rareparts.com/RP10734-CONTROL-ARM-W-BALL-JOINT?partlocation=FRONT LEFT LOWER&veh=1984-TOYOTA-CELICA
Web site indicates this is for a Celica and Supra

https://shop.rareparts.com/RP10805-CONTROL-ARM-W-BALL-JOINT?partlocation=FRONT RIGHT LOWER&veh=1984-TOYOTA-CELICA
Web site indicates this is for a Celica

This brings up the age old question: are Celica and Celica-Supra lower front control arms the same? I have been through old posts and several indicate that the mounting hole locations for the strut rods are in a different location.

This site shows that these parts are compatible with Celica Supra, but if you look closely at one of their pictures, you will see the part number decal that indicates 48068-19105 which is the Toyota Part Number for a Celica RH lower control arm.

Does anyone know for sure if these parts fit our cars?

Dale no experience with that website...IMO on the kinda pricey side...you can find lower arms on eBay but have to be very careful about proper fitment

You can also check on Toyodiy.com for part crossover for RA and MAs....

The front lower control arms are not the same for the celica and celica supra. I made the mistake of ordering a complete lower control arm with ball joints from rockauto and a lot of the supra parts are listed under celica - > 2.8L L6. Well come to find out the ball joints sent to me were too small and the control arm didn't fit right and they were actually for the celica. So definitely double check the parts you order. I recommend a visual inspection from a local auto parts store.

I just bought a set of MOOG ball joints, anyone knows how those compared to OEM?
Can you tell me which MOOG ball joints you have? On eBay, the following MOOG part numbers are listed for my '85 "P" Type, although I do not think Toyota's ball joint design changed over the years:

Y921GX
K9085
YP38D5
K9085

TIA,


Ken.

I bought the MOOG K9085. It's what Rockauto pulled up when I searched under Toyota>Celica>2.8L

Haven't had a chance to install them yet though.

Celica balljoints are smaller, even the shanks are a smaller diameter.

Curious where the current supply of Moog and other aftermarket balljoints is at. We've had many cases of the AM ones being a touch too small in diameter to press back into the arm.

I had nothing but issues with joints being too small, coming loose in the arm, etc.

I ended up going with GTX2 lower control arms from T3, nice and tight. Not cheap though.

Im pretty sure these aren't Celica balljoints. It's just on rockauto you have to choose Celica then 2.8l (Supra motor) instead of choosing the actual Celica Supra model for some reason, can anyone chime in to confirm?

Well you bought em, put a mic on them and check and let us know. I've bought more then a couple things just as you did via rock auto and ended up with the celica version. And not once yet has it been economical enough to bother returning them lol

Will be a while till I can do that unfortunately lol.

BUT, I just double checked on the MOOG website. The part number Rockauto sent me matches to the one MOOG pulls up under 1985 Supra. Should be correct. Right?
