Why do you need all 4 replaced? Are they damaged? I'm sure you can still use them, I haven't seen one yet thats damaged. The only thing I've ever seen was a stud snap off the mount. At any rate,

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sh...xus/is300.html

For around $90 you can get all 4. Note the rear is only replacing the bushing, not the whole assembly. Again, these things don't really go bad. My car had total 100,000 miles on stock mounts and I looked at the mounts and they look damn near new...

Don't waste your money...

If you need a real shop to look at everything for you and install things, you can call Tach Motor Works, 516-608-9930. They do all things IS300 and they're in NY. Ask for Lucky.


By the way, OEM is CHEAP. $60 for each front mount and rear is like $20 each side for the bushing cushions (upper and lower). --> total is around $160.

You can get them at L-tuned parts (Carson Toyota).

Print it out and show it to your mechanic and ask him what you need.

i think you may be replacing the strut mount bushings, not the actual strut mounts. there isn't a reason to need to replace the studs unless you snapped one in half. the bushings on the other hand wear out after 10 years / 100k miles.
