Alignment Bolt Part #s
« on: November 14, 2017, 01:07:18 PM »
Does anyone happen to know the part numbers for the rear toe and caster adjustment bolts on the rear of a Gen 3 Montero?

I've been searching the parts warehouse catalogues and google but cannot find the part #.

Thanks TOASTY. I'm saving up for the Siberian Bushing Kits so I can replace things while putting in my new suspension. My rear end on the Gen 3 has a terrible case of adolescent camber, which I've come to learn is very common on the IRS models. The common cause seems to be seized camber adjustment bolts that most alignment shops refuse to mess with. Worn bushings seem to contribute as well.

The part description you list above is for the right rear (I'm assuming that's what "RR" stands for). Do you know if the left and right bolts would be interchangeable, or would they have to be mirror images of each other since they're on different sides. Also, I wonder if the toe adjustment bolts are interchangeable with the camber adjustment bolts. Seems all four are susceptible to seizing, and if I break one during disassembly I'd like to at least know the part # for a replacement.

Again, thanks for helping. Hopefully I'll have funds free up sometime before or after the holidays for the bushing kits. I'd hate to have to take apart my suspension twice, once for the new springs and shocks, and then again later to do the bushings.
