For OEM, yes Toyota is the only place, but brace yourself. IIRC, there is an update, and you have to purchase new rods and ends.

Fun time!

Good luck!

IMO, check with some of the Vendors out there....the stock rod ain't much for strength. I recently bend a .250 wall custom rod and have straightened/sleeved that one to .375. (1-1/4" OD)

Can't think of any offhand, but there are vendors doing custom rods that will work with your metric ends.

I know this is the case with a fj40, not sure if its the same on a 60. But on a 40 the trick is to order just the TRE.......it comes with a free tie rod, on a 40 it cost $50 for TRE and tie rod(tie rod by itself is $100 but free?) And from what I can tell nothing changed, treads are still the same, new vrs old. again not sure if this is the case for fj60.

I have NO cluse why Toyota did this.

Looks like yes on a fj60(2), you buy a tie rod end and it comes with a new tie rod, same deal as a fj40.

45046-60H05, list $84, passanger side
45047-60HO3 list $100 driverside

both of these should come with both TRE and rod, if you don't need the ends, order the cheaper of the 2. Can't 100% confirm but the # swtiched over like the 40's # did. And from what I could tell on a fj40 nothing really changed, the new rod went right on my old TRE's. Why Toyota is doing this is a mystery to me, but its ALOT cheaper than buying just the rod.

you might want to try sleeving it if your going the oem route. I think you can also get larger dom rods from someone like www.rockstomper.com Bigger tires and harder wheelin your going to need beefier parts or be expecting to happen again. BTDT.

Pimp, trying to give Al a hand with this. Called my dealer with your #'s, same deal $315 for the whole assembly. Any clue who might have just the rod?

those part numbers and prices came from my dealer the day i posted them, so i can only assume they are correct, he hasn't ever screwed up. Call him, Al at Titus Will Toyota,he is in untill 2pm PST(like 15min from now) 253 620 8994.

I know I paid $50 for TRE and tie rod 3 months ago, tie rod was free.

been on the phone with him sense I posted, Al is SURE either of those parts numbers comes with end AND rod...........he is so sure we ordered one, he has sold 2 of em this year.....we will find out how his memory is thursday morning ;)

45460-69105 is the rod and both ends, retail is $315, thats what they are talking about. Really.........just ask them to check the $84 part number....heck if its wrong no biggy.

Hello Poser,

Interesting avitar, do you know the origin?


The OEM replacement ends come with tubes as the Pimp mentioned. Ends as follows:

RH tie rod, 45046-60H05, list $84.28
LH tie rod, 45047-60H03, list $100.50
RH relay rod, 45045-60H04, list $81.09
LH relay rod, 45044-60H00, list $96.06

In short, if you buy all 4 ends you will end up with 2 tie rod tubes and 2 relay rod tubes.

Here's where it throws folks.

COMPLETE TIE ROD, 45460-69105, list $315.77
COMPLETE RELAY ROD, 45450-69055, list $255.36

Basicaly the difference between buying both tie rod ends as opposed to the complete rod is you end up with an extra tube, you re-use the clamps and you save $130.99 for the trouble.

Cheers, D-
