    Its not just toyota stuff, there's links on this page for the equivalent site for other makes.  I haven't ordered anything for my 80 yet but I did order some parts for my Ford a few months ago.  Great service, quick shipping, used USPS (much cheaper to Alaska).  I was quoted $125 locally for clutch master cyl for my Ford Pickup.  Got it thru this site for <$85 including shipping to Alaska.

    Just priced the airfilter tube between the throttle body and airfilter.  List was $85.82, their price $68.66..... Not bad.
    I priced out a few other parts I need with similar results.

    You can search a lot of parts by location/function, but Part #'s help.  


    Cheers all :)

    Jomama,

    >> but Part #'s help. <<

    There's the rub. You not only need the p/n but you would like to be sure that you have the right part number.

    I believe it was Rick that bought a throttle cable from his local dealer last week and found out he got the wrong part.

    It is nice to have someone to talk you through stuff when the help is needed. The below list price can be had elsewhere.

    I needed a new PS knuckle. &nbsp:Dealer quoted me ~$250. I searched for a few seconds for a phone number and poof! The knuckle ended up costing much less. :D

    Ray Charles has a better chance of finding the right part number in the dark than my guy!
