when i had to do mine (they were leaking) i just went to the toyota garage and got them, and i'm not sure what they called them. to replace it's easy as hell. Once you have the cv out just use a pair of needle nose pliers and pull it out. to set the new back in, first rub some diff fluid around the rubber seal ( like you would when you change your oil on your oil filter), the just gently tap the new seal in. You may have to use a punch to get it all they way in but just be easy with it and you'll find that it's pretty simple.
