    Hello, kabibili ko lang po ng 2 new tires for my xt, nung ipa-align ko na napansin nung mechanic na umuuga yung gulong, tinignan nila at nakita na umuuga yung tawag nilang idler arm o center post, may naka-experience na po ba sa inyo nito? TIA

    I had my idler arm centerpost assembly changed recently, kung madalas ka malubak or high mileage ka na, may chance nga na lumuwag na yun. ano na ba mileage mo? medyo mahirap din gibain yun centerpost na yan. Ako more than 110,000km when I had mine changed and it was not totally loose. ang nag loosen yung tie rods and centerlink.

    Idler Arm is prone to wear and tear. Because everytime you turn it serves as a hinge and at the same time absorbs the shocks and movements of the front suspension. Maingay yan pag talagang loose na.

    Ang partner niyan ay ang pitman arm. but this part is not expose to wear because they have no ball joints.

    Salamat po sa mga reply.

    rsnald,
    nasa 180,000 na ang mileage ko, replacement o genuine ang pinalit mo? magkano? nagtanong kasi ako sa isuzu dealer, price was 5,700+ (less 10% daw).

    kaya pala. ang haba na pala mileage mo. tinalo 141,000km ko :D. OEM pinalit ko. mga ganyan nga yata presyo kasi yung pitman arm(lang), P2100-2300 na agad. ang tawag yata nila dun yung steering arm assembly. kasama dun yung bracket at saka yung parang patusok na center post kung san nakasuksok yung idler arm. subukan mo magtanong sa isuzu makati, mas mura sila ng konti. kung gusto mo mas mura, yung brand na "555" daw usually ginagamit sa hilander na old model.

    medyo mahirap kalasin yan kung wala kang bearing puller. saka normally, sabay-sabay palit ng front steering parts, like the tie-rod ends and center link. pa check mo na rin yung parts na yun para siguarado. sayang kasi kung umuuga parin after mapalitan isang part lang. saka eventually, madadamay din ulit yung bagong part nung luma na sira na. yung nga lang, may kamahalan talaga pag OEM. hth ;)

    I'm planning to replace the idler arm and the center post of my XTRM this weekend. Should I go OEM or Thailand replacement?

    Idler Arm OEM - P4800 sa Walco
    Idler Arm Thailand Replacement - P1100

    I've the idler arm and the centerlink bushing replaced yesterday at Wheelers. Walco quoted it for P1200 for the Thai-made replacement. I got them from LVC for only P850. Same brand and identity.
