Yeah Toyota lowered alot of there prices on common used parts.

We get the Toyota trade magazine and every month they have about 5 pages of discounted parts.

Radiator hoses $29.00 each,Heater hoses $10.00 each, all V belts $19.00 each.

I can buy 4 genuine shock bsorbers for my turbo diesel cruiser for $220 even tho it has a 2" lift, after trying Bilstiens at $1200 and having them destroy themselves I now stick with the originals and change them when I change BFG tyres at about 50k if they need it. Common sense should always prevail. RobBerrill

Rob,
I did the same on the Prado, and just changed back to Toyota shocks on teh 79series. Toyota shocks are better quality than any aftermarket shock I've used in the past. Amazing price.

It's no surprise Toyota have been selling common parts cheap for years.

90% of the parts I use are genuine parts. in most cases only a few $$$ more than after market.

Cheers Steve.

Ever heard the "old Jewish shopkeepers joke" - in short, after trying to justify his higher parts prices (compared to others), he said ....."listen - when I don't have any slave cylinders, mine are really cheap too" !

Hi

I needed to get a free-wheeling hub and the chrome mounting part as well for my 80 series this week, everybody sells the outer part so it is $75 and that is cheaper than anywhere else. The chrome part, well only available through Toyota and nearly $300 so they still love to do you over when they have the chance.

Have fun

"$9500 for a cruiser pump on a 100 series from toyota."

Cooma Diesel sells rebuilt 1HD-FTE pumps for $3000. Still a lot of $$$$

Fuel pump for a '85 model 3F powered "yota" was $206 from a common spare parts place, Genuine was $216, but nil stock in Queensland !?
$40 from a wrecker with 3 month warranty.

Heres one about Toyota. Needed the drag arm on the wiper assembly (HJ60). Piece of aluminium, 600 mm long with nylon lock cups on each end. First quote $300.
Asked the Forum members and was told to look for a genuine part, different part number for an '89 (mine '84) - cost $18.
Toyota's reply - "All dealers are in control of their Spare Parts departments. Nothing to do with us"
Be aware, not alarmed. Ask the Forum members, someone will know a better deal.

Still working well. It was a genuine one, just not the part for an "84 LC.
