i called toyota, they told me 250$ just for hanger bearing.Sad :(
The reason why i asked about hanger bearing is that i seen one on ebay Driveshaft from 88 turbo auto with new hanger bearing for about 50$. So im going to try use that bearing for my 89
5 speed . hope its the same

Crazyone2044, The turbo mk3's 5-speed manual tranny is called the R154. Its the 'name' of the particular transaxle, like 7M-GTE is the 'name' of the turbo motor.

There's lots of acronyms in common usage, "DS" is driveshaft, "MHG" is metal head gasket, etc.

Do some searching around and learn the ropes a bit better, there's lots of folks around here that don't take well to seemingly stupid questions.

On another note, the "hanger bearing" is commonly referred to as the "carrier bearing" in most other discussions. The common consensus is that an aftermarket 1-piece driveshaft is the way to go to prevent dealing with more carrier bearing issues and for reducing rotational mass for increased performance.

Welcome to the board. Think twice, (or even three times) and post once. :)
