Rock auto will ship to Angola. I have not used them personally but they have a good reputation and a friend bought some parts for his BMW through them and was happy.

Is it both of the rears?
Yes, they ship to Angola.

I think it's just the right side, but I'm thinking about replacing both. Mech said it is better to do those in pairs. What do you think about that?

Yes, there is a Toyota dealer here, but they do not have it. And buying from Toyota here is much more expensive then importing anyways. Bye the way, I hope my car gets to that mileage.

Yes, probably a good idea to do both at once especially if its such a pain to get parts. I know it seems your car is falling apart but once you do these things it should be good for the long haul.

I replaced front left bearing 5 miles ago and I do have a spare bearing. Now, it turns out that havign both hubs shipped will be very expensive because of the weight, so I will buy one from rockauto and see if I will need to replace the other.

My RX330 has 126000 miles. Bought it with 123000 and am like rebuilding it step by step. If I get it to your mileage I will be very satisfied with my buying.

Dealers? Here we have stealers. I pay for the part from USA or China, FedEx, Customs fees, internet service provider and it's still cheaper than anywhere here. That is when they ave the part, which, in this case, they didn't. Anyways, thanks, it was the rear right wheel bearing.

That's excellent news. Thanks for updating us with that. My wife's RX has started making a vibration when turning left only. Started after new tires installed. Rotating the tires front - back did not change the vibration. I checked the front CV boots to see if they were leaking and they are not. Might look into the rear hub bearings next.

With regular fluid changes, I expect my RX to reach around 500K km. Will have rust and possibly power mirrors no longer working by then but who cares. Hopefully, Tesla will have a 40,000 model by then.

Yes, do check the rear hub bearings. I had vibration and it is gone now that I replaced the hub.
