I've got the idler arm off my 88 V6 Runner (w/procomp2 IFS lift) apart and sitting on my bench. I was searching for the cause of a clunking in the front that is most noticeable when braking to a stop at slow speed. The only thing I have found so far is the idler arm has a little play. I figured the bushings my be worn. Now that I have it apart, I can see that the upper bushing is slightly ovaled. First question: Are the bushings a dealer only item? Second question: Any ideas about the clunking? All the steering components except the idler arm seem to be tight. All ball joints seem tight. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks LCKD4RNR for the link. I didn't figure the idler arm would be to hard to repair. I just need to find the parts on a Sunday in Utah. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> Pretty poor planning on my part.
