    My driver's side ball joint broke today and I've now learned they are a PITA to replace. Does anyone have a set for sale?

    I've got a set sitting in my trash can off my 2005, but the trash guy comes today. I'm near you too in Silver Spring! I'd give them to you for free if you want to go grab them :D

    I have a stock set from my 2014 if they would fit. Can't seem to get rid of these things.

    They'll definitely fit

    Sorry man, trash truck has definitely come by now. They're long gone. I didn't think anyone would want 12 year old UCAs with 170k miles on them (though they were in pretty good condition)

    I've got an OEM set from my 03 4Runner that are just sitting in my garage as well. If you can't pick up the set from Dziner, you can come get mine. Or if you'd like you can pick up a new set of BJ's from Napa and we can press them in at my place with a vise.
