    I can only find u joints at toyota and they want like$75 each. Napa didn't even go up to 05 it just stops at the 04s. Can I use ones for the 04? Any one know where to find some cheaper and why this is?

    no they just dont have a listing on the computer. if you bring one in to the store , ask for the commercial sales rep they will measure and match them up.if he is worth a shit.
