PostSubject: Upper control arms for 98 super custom kzh 106 4wd   Tue Jan 30, 2018 2:59 am

Apparently this part can't even be ordered anymore such is concerning. Does anyone know where I might find a pair?

What happens if you guys can't find parts for these cars anymore?

Can't get them from a Toyota dealership in Australia at least. I can't see the link on jp car parts for a 98 kzh 106. Would you be able to paste a link jt69?

Thankyou so much guys!

I noticed there are 4 different variants.  What is the difference and can I make a mistake here by getting the wrong one?

48066-29035
48066-29045
48066-29115
48066-29105

My kzh 106 does have abs, but I am unclear if the description relates on 48067-29035

I got a genuine Toyota one for a '95 LH119 from http://www.allcarpartsfast.co.uk although that might not be directly helpful for you in Australia, they are available.

Pricey. I added grease nipples.

From what I read, replacing the ball joints was possible...but you'd end up wishing you'd bought a new arm Smile

Would anyone be able to give me tips on my post above? I'm unsure if I can mess this up because it looks like there are 4 part numbers that are very similar. Thanks for any help if can let me know.

Hi according to ToyoDIY only part 48066-29115 applies to your 106 most of the others relate to SBV versions. Good luck

Thanks for helping me through it. I ordered them from jp carparts today.

I'm concerned that the parts might go away one day. are you guys ever worried about that? I'm thinking of selling, even though I love this car and theres nothing else like it available in Australia.

Parts are a problem for all old vehicles, as new ones come out every year or two the number of parts keeps growing and the older less demanded parts get rare, expensive and drop away. In the odd case where the value and popularity is high parts are remade - this is the one advantage of the VW vans: lots of parts. However I did hear of someone who broke down in an old VW van in Germany and they couldn't find the parts via VW LOL.

I had a problem with my headlamps (the reflectors got dull), and I'm still working on the new replacements (glass fronted Ford Transit Mk5 headlamps) which fit pretty well but it's significantly more work than bolting in new (unobtainable for my headlamp style) headlamps. The Fords are 5x brighter (with the same bulbs) so it's got to be done.

We're lucky that the HiLux shares quite a few parts, for deeper mechanical parts like link joints etc maybe one day we'll have to get custom made parts. One issue on the Hiace is actually the design of the front end as the springs act on the UPPER arms, which gives rise to some false MOT test fails due to the way the mechanic tests them.

This the popular post that explains it:

Subject: Upper balljoint fault diagnosis

Hi All
There is an issue here. The Granvia wishbone suspension is unusual in that the torsion bar acts on the
upper arm, rather than the lower, which is more common. This means that the upper balljoint is under
load at all times, unless the wheel leave the ground over a bump(!). If jacked under the frame so that
the wheels hang loose, the upper balljoint hangs away from its seat and some up-and-down movement
will be seen if the wheel is crowbarred in the usual MOT lift-check.
I checked with a Toyota main-dealer MOT tester, who assured me that the suspension should be jacked
under the lower arm for this test and that, if there is no sideways movement in the joint, no noise on
swivelling and no lift more than a few mm, then the joint can pass the test.
I was given an advisory note on both my joints last year, from the garage that I use, which is why I
checked it out, but got a pass on both joints this year after I told the tester about the explanation from
the Toyota man. The fact that the tester was once my student made it easier, of course, but he still
managed to fail me on emissions - cos I've been driving gently round town for the las few weeks, so no
smugness from me!
Today I put some Redex cleaner in and gave it a thrash for a few miles and the smoke has gone. Hoping
for a pass on retest tomorrow.

interesting, thanks for that post. I can imagine it would be difficult to explain that to get a roadworthy, especially since the car is so rare to come by. Now im possibly a little frustrated because a few years back I actually paid to get the joints machined by Pedders, it cost a tonne, and now just a few years later I'm told to go buy new ones by another service place because the joints have too much movement.

Maybe making the new purchase of these parts was unnecesary.
