    That sucks..........better jump on the eBay ones fast. I got a Fed-Ex tracking number on mine and it's supposed to be here on Friday (shipped from Florida). Tim

    PS: I'd recommend going with the seller FebestUSA as the other guy on eBay is the same as Amazon (Finest Auto Parts). If he's out on Amazon, he's probably also out on eBay.

    That sucks! I've been tracking mine like a hawk considering the other people that have had this happen. Mine say they left Florida on Friday and are supposed to arrive by next Monday.

    Re: ball joints

    I got a Amazon text update this morning 1057am that the upper arm set was being shipped out via FedEx and ETA is 2/10 Saturday.

    I just check the tracking number on the FedEx website and it has departed the origin facility at 1052pm, 1pkg, 21 lbs

    I just grabbed the single remaining left one. Unless I'm unlucky again.

    Re: ball joints

    That #8 look pretty close to the one on our 4WD. https://www.ebay.com/itm/TOYOTA-OEM-...8AAOSwbyZZeP6Q Same on the Tacoma of that era.
    Anyway to crosscheck parts #?
    Could it be?

    There is no way of filtering 4WD in the vehicle selection. They have the lower 2wd MOOG picture right when they sale the 2wd lower. I think they just mislabeled the upper as a lower: confusing at best, annoying if you do not know the difference and place the order.

    Re: ball joints

    Do we have our self a source for an NLA van part? Is it wishful thinking? Look at the Lower control arm part #

    This is the 4WD van:

    This is 4Runner:

    Re: ball joints

    Although similar and maybe even adaptable, I seriously doubt the 4 runner parts are interchangeable. If it's NLA from Toyota, then about the only source I know would be salvage yards...........and these are becoming quite rare to find there (especially 4wd vans). It's an unfortunate reality of owning older obsolete vehicles (as I'm sure you're already all too aware of). Tim

    Re: ball joints

    Yes I know.Yesterday I ordered the driver side from The Yotayard in Denver, the passenger side was already gone..

    I just called them back, and they said that it would have to be the 90/95 chassis as after that the 4Runner went from shock/ torsion bar (like the van) to coil over. He will send me side by side pics and measurements in a day or 2.

    Side note: if any body needs a 4Y engine... it is running but 300something thousand miles. they have one.

    Re: ball joints

    I've been obsessively checking the Amazon links Tim supplied and it looks like the upper 4wd ball joint/control arms are finally back in stock. As of 7/17/18 they have 15 lefts and 7 rights (minus the ones I ordered). Hopefully it's true! Get 'em while you can.
    I also ordered the last set of AC Delco lower ball joints they had. They are cheaper there than on Rockauto.

    Upper front arm - FEBEST good part?

    Hi all,

    i think to replace my poor chinese upper arm installed in 2013 because they make a lot of cracking and for alignment they are a little be too short to be Inside the green zone.

    I found febest upper arm at 59.95$ each... Should i guess buying theses parts? My other option is to buy directly from JAPAN OEM upper arm at 220$... big difference.

    Someone had experience with FEBEST upper arm?


    thank you.
