PS For some reason, the rear strut mount comes with a new rubber bellows to protect the strut making the rear strut mounts more expensive. My old bellows were in pretty good shape front and rear so I wasn't too happy about having to buy new rear bellows but what are ya going to do?

I read through almost the whole thread. It seems lot of folks have got their struts changed as a DIY job.
Please can someone help with the part number of items (bellows, mounts, etc ) that i would need to buy from Toyota/Lexus. I am planning to buy everyone myself and then get all my 4 struts replaced by an independent mechanic by paying only for labor. For that i really need to be sure that i don't mess up with any missing part. Part Numbers or web links will help. Also any recommendation where to get the KYB struts for the best price?
Thanks a lot to all the helpful folks on this forum
