1.  run devfsadm -c configure c#d#s#
2. run  #metastat
3. and if it shows that leg as "need maintenance" just run metareplace for that leg !!!!! that will help.

Check the jumper settings in your new HD, to make sure it is correct. (the default setting is "cable select",  you might need to set it as Master or Slave, it depands on which disk you replace.

If the disk is different made and model, you might need to perform a perform a reconfigure boot.
touch /reconfigure

Then following the instruction in http:Q_23921942.html to rebuild the mirrors.
