ST165 driveshaft support bearings

Postby JohnNK » Mon Jul 29, 2013 7:59 am

The front and rear center support bearings for the drive shaft on my ST165 need to be replaced. Does anyone know the part number and if they know of a reputable source for OEM parts like this? Thanks!

the front and rear support bearings are identical part numbers but the part number changed during the 1988 model year
1987/10-1988/04 BEARING ASSY, CENTER SUPPORT, NO. 1 37230-20110 (subs. 37230-20101)
1988/04-1989/08 BEARING ASSY, CENTER SUPPORT, NO. 1 37230-20120 (subs. 37230-20121)

The early model part number is discontinued but the 37230-20121 shows as still available on ToyotaPartsZone.com for $135.89. I don't normally buy through them, but it provides me a preliminary indication of dealer parts availability.

It's cheaper to get a 1 piece steel shaft made.
But you will lose the dampening effect of the stock shafts.

Threadjack: where can you get one made and exactly how cheap is it?

Your local driveshaft shop can make them, if you have to ship it the price goes up a bit.
Cost me $200 for my Cressida, that's with new U joints. I also live in an expensive area [near Boston].
