    I have and it's not due to bolt deformation. For me it's just the fact of having clean hardware and gaining spare bolts. The tie rods came with new pins and castle nut. Necessary? No but noce to bolt in with new hardware. Luxury vs requirement.

    1. Improperly torqued
    2. Using tire setups that weigh outside the spec that the ball joints we're engineered for. In 98, for example, they didn't expect people to slap 35" tires on the trucks, the only lifts out there were spacer lifts at the time. So operating outside the design specs doesn't help.

    Dunno, but wouldn't surprise me. :thumbsup:

    Samezies. Glad I ended up writing them down so I don't have to wonder in the future.

    One interesting note is that the '01-04 LBJs use a slightly different bolt setup than '98-00 (and maybe earlier) where instead of a flanged bolt, they use a bolt+washer, since there's a rubber boot that covers the ball joint and the washer keeps the bolt from tearing it up.

    I wonder if that's why there are all these different part numbers...

    No clue. I'm an idahoan. And proud of it.
    I would agree but there's two flanged bolts that zero posted with different numbers. Logically I would think there's two numbers, one for flanged, one for washers. Yet the ones for the flanged bolts phessor posted are different than zero's. So that's 3 numbers for the same bolt!

    I bet we can find even more if we searched! ;)

    Just like you talked about earlier. Why Toyota spends time to use multiple p/ns for the same part is odd. You would think it'd be easier to just use one part number & cross reference for different vehicles like they actually do for other parts.

    Like the cigarette light lamp. 90010-01030 is for '01 up, orange bulb cover. 84999-10250 is for pre-'01, same lamp assy just with a green bulb cover. Ok that's logical but noooo there's more p/ns for the green, all with the same COO too!
    :confused: :annoyed: :facepalm:

    What is more suprising is just that it is counterintuitive to the Toyota/lean process.

    My company did the whole Lean Kaizan Toyota model years ago. Not a fan. Felt like Tony Robbins for CEOs.

    While not a great fit for all industries, it has it's merits. I wish my company could be even more lean and eliminate certain expenses.
    Clean!!
