    Need to replace my UBJs... this includes the boots and grease and clips and all that other fun stuff.

    2004 3.4L 4WD Manual transmission

    Are these the correct OEM part numbers?

    43350-39105 right
    43360-39095 left

    idk why there are so many different part numbers for upper ball joints? I would assume 6 lug UBJs would all be the same (maybe left and right but that's it?), but I'm seeing diff numbers for auto vs manual.

    There are 3 different part numbers.. I would assume that 43310-39016 is the superceded part number to 43350-39105 and 43360-39095?

    Bet you some of those are for the 5 lug. I've seen it before where the retailer mis-identifies the parts, or improperly identifies the model. Like only making a distinction between a "base", "4wd", and "prerunner" or similar.

    Hell, Amazon (from your link) only shows the S-runner, Base, and Prerunner.

    Spend the extra $5 and get them from Camelback...

    Amazon link? :notsure: I didn't link Amazon anywhere.

    I gave Gunny my VIN and he said I just need 43310-39016 for both sides.

    Anytime I need to know the exact part numbers for my truck, I plug my VIN into here...

    Might have to call Cameback parts dept directly to get ahold of him or someone that works with him, I remember hearing awhile back he got promoted and someone else took over his TW account and they don't check in as much as he did.

    If you clink on the a-m-a-z-o-n "link" in my last post, it takes me to A-m-a-z-o-n with the search "toyota tacoma accessories" already filled in.

    But I think we're all missing a main point here about your upper balljoints.

    What you really need:

    never have to rent/buy another balljoint press in your life! :D

    I've spent enough money on this truck already lol. Plus I have my money tied up in a bunch of other things right now.
    192k of good service life on the UBJs is pretty good, I think I'll stick with it

    Just do like I did, try to order Camburgs, and end up getting TC's for the same price because they were indefinitely backordered. Saved me like $150!
