Quick delivery
The part arrived quickly and it was the right part. But it only came with the bolts and gasket for one side. I had to go out and purchase the bolts and gasket for the front connection. Other than that it was a perfect fit.

Why is this part saying excluding Japan built models? What is the difference between Japan built and other models. What part should I be looking to buy?

BEST ANSWER: In most cases, the angle or bolt set up between US built models and Japan built models will separate causing this part not to work. What is your year, and model so we may identify the correct part(s)?
