I recently looked for the sway bar cushion (or bushings, front and rear) and found a site that listed the Toyota part numbers, it was called "OEM partner", and it listed about thirty places that have these bushings, mostly dealers. the cheapest were in Russia or Japan, but interesting the cheapest in USA was a dealer in Tacoma WA.

My Toyota parts list
'87 Tercel 4wd SR5 (current engine swap project)
'84 Tercel 4wd (daily driver, with on going mods)
'92 Mazda MPV 4wd (wife's daily driver)
'85 Tercel 4wd DLX auto(daughter's daily driver)
'01 Honda Civic (other daughter's daily driver)

So what does the 404 page not found mean at your link?
Sure you know I'm looking for replacements too.
It takes more fossil fuel resources to produce new vehicles than it would take to maintain and fuel any 70's or 80's vehicle for a million miles.

forget that portal, I have had trouble understanding it, just go to the dealers parts web site:

http://parts.tituswilltoyota.com/

I order the parts and I got an email this moring saying they have "accepted" the order, and to expect a "parts shipped" email later today. so it appears they can still get these parts from at least one toyota dealer.

They also show a full Tercel4wd transmission assembly available for $1750. sounds like a great deal for a new trans, if they can actually get one. Still a lot to spend on a 30 year old econo-box to keep it running, but that trans should last another 30 years if cared for properly.

Hi all,
I ordered all the parts listed and am hoping to install them next week. I was wondering if y'all had recommendations for something I can put on the rubber bushings to help keep them from drying out over time. Should I just spray them occasionally with silicone lube? Thanks.

CCMT, did your bushings not come with a packets of grease? Just asking because overhere when we buy them, they come as a set (eg front sway bar busshings, you'll get 2) in a plastic bag and a sachet of grease included. If not you should be able to buy them separately.

silicone spray lube works well, not sure what the included grease is, but anything goopy will attract dust and dirt and will contributor to it wearing out faster. graphite powder perhaps?

Didn't come with any grease so I'll stick with silicone. I should go with the dry as opposed to the wet kind, right? Thanks for all
The help folks.
