Thanks for the help, folks. Ceebs, great to hear you are in Nova Scotia. Between salt air, salt water and salt roads, i think there is only a handful 60's and 70's left.

Hello WarDamnEagle. Thanks for the parts links/listing. Very helpful to have the full #s. One of the challenges I have with Toyota Parts Deal is the cost of the shipping to Canada. $150 worth of bushings costs an additional $200 in shipping not including potential customs fees. Ouch.
If you know of a Canadian provider, please let me know.
Thanks.

Yes I do, your local Toyota dealer. I only posted Toyota Parts Deal because they were at or near the top of every google search for the numbers. I'm not familiar with the best online retailer for Canada - sorry.

I've ordered from Discount OEM Toyota Parts and Accessories - ToyotaPartsDirect.com - https://www.toyotapartsdirect.ca/ in Canada and Genuine Japanese Car Part Imports - Amayama - https://www.amayama.com/en and PartSouq Auto Parts Around the World - https://partsouq.com/ internationally. Internationally is usually cheaper and better availability but longer waits in my experience.

I'd be interested to see some pictures/tips when you go to replace these. There's not much on here on replacing the 70 series mounts.

Hello. I am doing the sway bar links this week. While crawling around down there, it will give a good chance to see which body mounts needed the most attention. Since some mounts look more available from Toyota than others (ie upper #3s are plentiful, lower #3s not so much) I will keep you posted.
On a different note, my drivers side-mirror didn't seem to like the minus 20 Celsius yesterday and leapt-to-its-death on highway 102. Watched it cartwheel into pieces.....plastic mounts are getting weak....bummer.

I haven't heard any squeaking and I think I'm about 4 years in to having them on. If they are squeaking it is probably drowned out by engine noise though. The kit is just easy to get (with all new hardware) and polyurethane has a good reputation for longevity.

He has a YouTube video about making them

Liked the video and the amount of 'hand crafting' used. In the meantime, changed out the link bushings and scrape away 20 years of rustproof undercoating. Before and after pic attached. Gave me a chance to have a good look at the body bushings, too. Will order a kit from 4Crawler Offroad.
