    Peeps can I get a double check on these part numbers. Looking to replace my Moog lower ball joints due to the recall. I've a 2005 DC 2wd. The 187 part number is for the 8 bolts correct? Thanks

    Am planning on replacing the LBJs on my 2000 with OEM when I replace the CV Axles. Rather than re-using the old ones, I'd like to replace the 8 LBJ bolts with new. I've searched here as well as Toyota Parts Online and they don't list them for an '00 for some reason.

    The closest I've come is 90105-10085 but the description reads "Bolt, NO.1 (For Propeller Shaft & Differential Setting)". Maybe they're one the same, but...

    Can the experts here confirm the correct LBJ bolt part number for a 2000 AC 4x4?

    TIA!

    Thanks Nick... I did see that. When I put that part number in Toyota Parts Online it says it does not fit. It might, and it'd be cheap to find out, but when it's apart I don't want to have to stop and run to the store or use the old ones if I can help it.

    From reading umpteen various posts, it looks like Toyota liked to change those things up on a regular basis.

    If I put in my truck it says it doesn't fit it either. It does say it fits a bunch of 1st gen Tacoma's and 3rd gen 4runners.
    I'm not for sure why it says it doesn't fit but I can tell you for sure that's the part number I ran and it hasn't blown apart yet. I do understand your concern though. Maybe someone else will chime in but I know I got the recommendation to use that PN from someone else.

    That's just strange. I bet you're right though, I bet it fits. Hopefully someone can confirm. Thanks again!

    Getting ready to order LBJ's for our '00 AC SR5 4x4 and wanted to confirm that these LBJ flange bolts will fit:

    Toyota PN 90080-10066

    Of course, if they won't, would welcome the correct PN.

    Anyone?

    TIA!

    So after a lot of back-and-forth about which bolts to install in the LBJs on our 2000 AC 4x4, it turns out that the ARP 663-1004 hardened bolts and washers are the ones to go with.

    More here about why to use these instead of Toyota 90080-1066 flange bolts:

    https://www.tundras.com/threads/spiker-engineering-lower-ball-joint-bolt-test-1st-gen.111746/

    Read the entire thread or skip to the last few posts for the final decision making.

    Lowest price (as of this post) is at Summit Racing:

    https://www.summitracing.com/parts/arp-663-1004

    My understanding is that they will also fit 2001 however they may or may not fit '02 - '06 due to an additional LBJ boot that the '00 and '01 do not have.

    To go along with last post by @richsadams

    If you want the best of the best lower ball joint bolts go with the ARP bolts. These are only known to fit trucks without the boot protector so far. If you have the protector you may need longer bolts, such as the 663-1005 which are 40mm instead of 35mm

    PN 663-1004 for no boot protector. The images of these bolts show they have a short shank section ( shaft with no threads) but out of 3 sets that have been ordered none of them have actually had it. Though I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be an issue if they did show up with it.

    These are pricy but should never break either.

    This thread is TLDR. Someone just tell me if I can order new bolts from Toyota and if so, what torque spec should I use? I'm not paying $60 for fancy bolts if I don't need to.

    New LBJ's installed this week. The ARP 663-1004 hardened bolts and washers worked perfectly and life is good. Replaced the front coils, shocks, sway bar links, CV Axels, timing belt, serpentine belt, idlers and water pump at the same time. Hopefully it'll be good for another quarter-million miles! :D

    Thanks for everyone's feedback, much appreciated! :thumbsup:
