IS300 and GS300 Xenon bulbs the same?

Checking on http://japan-parts.eu/, part numbers are as follows:

JCE10 IS300 – BULB, DISCHARGE HEADLAMP 90981-20007

JZS160 GS300 – BULB, DISCHARGE HEADLAMP 90981-20001

Visually they look identical.

Narva catalogue lists Narva 49301 is listed as fitting both applications.

http://xenonlight.com.ua/ lists a Philips D4R 42406 XenEco as fitting both applications.

Cressida Lower Control Arm Polyurethane Bushes – Same as IS300?

Regarding front lower control arm inner bushes, this site has the part listed as fitting both MX83 Cressida and JCE10 IS300:

As the superpro catalogue doesn’t list a MX83 lower control arm inner bush, it would be nice to confirm that it fits. Here’s the superpro info page for that part:

Superpro SPF3039K page

Note it doesn’t list MX83 on the application list.

Having both XE10 bushes and MX83 arms, I can confirm this WILL NOT fit. Measurements are taken off a new set of XE10 TRD bushes, and a set of used oem MX83 lower arms. Note the superpro part doesn’t include an outer shell, so measurements are taken on the inside of the existing shell.

XE10 on the left, Cressida on the right:

Removal is as follows:

  • Remove the 2 gold nuts (10mm)
  • Pull out the siren module
  • Unclip the connector

Cable tie the connector in a position so it won’t rattle.
