    Claremont Toyota

    Claremont Toyota deserves a plug for sponsoring the Meet & Greet and for going out of their way to be FJ-Friendly. It's good business but they deliver and as a consumer, that's what I'm looking for.
    I never blame myself when I'm not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats.
    After all, if I know it isn't my fault that I'm not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?

    Most definitely! Both Randy and Matt are very helpful and friendly. They are parts and service, so we're well covered.

    Re: Claremont Toyota

    This is basically a double post, but I wanted to give props to Claremont as well.

    After Doug's mishap on the White Mtn run, I thought it would be a good idea to pick up a spare CV boot and a tierod end, just in case. I called Toyota of Orange and they were asking something like $53 for the CV kit and $67 for the tierod end. I then called Clremont and the first guy I talked to gave me 20% off list, but told me to call back Monday and talk to Randy. Well, I called Randy today and he gave me a price of $75.00 for BOTH pieces. That's a savings of almost 40%.

    The price was cheap enough that I decided to buy two of each.

    Thanks Randy and Claremont Toyota!

    brian, make sure you got the inner tie rod. there's an outer as well, and that one is not prone to failure at all.

    That's great to hear. Those guys have been amazing in terms of supporting the Socal guys. You should post something in their forum. They are one of the good guys.

    i say it because the inner tie rod is closer to $150 give/take, and the outer is closer in price to what they quoted for you. the best price i found on the inner was around $110. part/no for the inner should be 45503-39305.

    Re: Claremont Toyota

    The Inner tie rod is the one that fails? That's the one that's inside the rack??? Odd that that's the one that has issues..

    Randy's such a great guy that he said he could return the other two that I ordered and get me the inner.

    Thanks for posting up Doug!

    You never know! Call them. If you need it, I can swing by and pick it up. I'm not far away.

    yup, although the inner tie rod is not in the rack. the outer would be damn near impossible to give way vs the inner. the inner (#5 below) screws into the outer (#4), and it's that shaft section right where the 5 and arrow is pointing to that will bend or break.
