    I know I'll get blasted for not saying "OEM", but I just bought AC Delco Professional (greasable) off Amazon.

    I've been buying parts from Amayama in Japan. Depends if you are buying enough items to make the shipping worthwhile. They are OEM Toyota parts. I bought inner and outer tie rods and upper and lower balljoints and a couple of other things even with shipping saved about $200 over buying here. Too many heavy items and it's not worth it. You'll have to wait a few days for them to arrive. I think it took 7 days from Japan to USA. Dave

    My last set I got from
    Summit racing and they are the moog “555” made in Japan. I’ve had them for going on 20k now with no issues. Checked them a few weeks ago when I did tie rods and they were still tight. I paid like 50$ each.

    I was trying to say I would get blasted for "not saying he should buy OEM". Poorly worded, I agree.

    BTW, can I get a price quote on some of your oil? :) This stuff is expensive:

    Gotta be careful, sometimes they aren't genuine. Also no, you can't just repackage oem parts.

    If you follow the links the prices vary they were both around 120.00 when I bought them. That’s a good price for me with free 2 day delivery.
