How on earth did you manage that? I always keep PMs turned off; too many channels of communication means more time spent rifling through comms and less time actually getting something done.


Hey Aaron,

I'm hoping you can help me out? Most of it is JDM parts for the ST205:

-48066-20061 Arm-sub-assy, front suspension camber control RH (fig.8's) (x2)
-90389-21003 Banana bar bush (x2)
-48606-29025 Front Lower Suspension Arm No. 1 L/H Camber Control Arm
-48605-29025 Front Lower Suspension Arm No. 1 R/H Camber Control Arm
-48069-29195 Arm sub-assy front suspension, lower No.2 LH: "Banana Bar"
-48068-29195 Arm sub-assy front suspension, lower No.2 RH: "Banana Bar"
+ ST185 hose that connects the oil drain pipe from the turbo to the oil pan

Can you let me know prices and availability for the items above? Thanks a lot!


I prefer not to quote prices (that is why we have www.LithiaToyotaParts.com) but I can check availability. Report is on the way. Stand by.

Of the part numbers you gave me, only 90389-21003 works on TMS-USA's parts system. We can check the other part numbers with our importer if you like. Just be aware that, if they are able to get the parts, we will be waiting a month or so for them to arrive. How big a hurry are you in?

ST185 oil drain hose is 15491-88380. That's in stock. Used on all Gen2 3SGTE so we sell them pretty regularly.

haha. I guess my Admin powers overrode your turned off PM. :)

Yeah I would have checked the site but nothing came up, they are all ST205 parts.

Not a huge hurry but sooner is better. A month would be fine.

Could I also add to the list a set of ST165 strut mounts (all 4), and a set of ST185 alternator brushes?

Thanks, keep me posted.

ST165 strut mounts are 48609-20100 front and 48750-20040 rear. Still available, though there is only one front mount in the US. You'd have to wait a couple of weeks to get the second one from Japan. You will also need two of dust seal 90303-22049 for the bearings in the front strut mounts.

The alternator brush pack for ST185 is 27370-75060, readily available.

I will let you know what we hear about the 205 parts.

Any news? :)Yep, we just heard back from the importer. Apparently we can get everything!

48066-20061 Arm-sub-assy, front suspension camber control RH (fig.8's) (x2) - $138 each
48606-29025 Front Lower Suspension Arm No. 1 L/H Camber Control Arm - $497
48605-29025 Front Lower Suspension Arm No. 1 R/H Camber Control Arm - $497
48069-29195 Arm sub-assy front suspension, lower No.2 LH: "Banana Bar" - $343
48068-29195 Arm sub-assy front suspension, lower No.2 RH: "Banana Bar" - $343

The importer did mention that, due to their weight, we may have to space this out into multiple shipments. Let me know if you decide you want to order them so that I can build them into the website for you.

Thanks Aaron. I've managed to find some help locally on this, so as it turns out I won't need to make the order. Which is good, b/c I think shipping would be quite pricey on these!

:) :)

You might want to add them anyway, there are lots of ST205 owners here in Canada, and almost all of them need new suspension.

Shipping might be brutal, but then, the parts ain't exactly cheap to begin with. Glad you got it sorted.

I think I will hold off on adding the parts to our web store until someone tells me they are ready to buy. Otherwise, people tend to assume that a recognized part number equals an in-stock part, and it becomes more trouble to start explaining (possibly upsetting customers and losing orders) than it would be to keep it quiet until someone steps up with the money.
