    So...The exhaust on my '07 has broken in two places, and I bought a whole new exhaust (Cat, mid and muffler). The Cat pip came with a crush gasket and mounting spring screws, the muffler did not. ugh. Should I/Do I need to get another gasket to go between the midpipe and muffler?

    Thank you!
    I figured as much! I'll pick it up at one of my local parts stores, as I am NOT paying the dealership prices for such a simple piece!

    As long as it's the same spec. If it's an extra buck or two through the dealership, better safe than sorry? This is around $15 we're talking about, lol.

    That part is $35.84 on your link from Toyota. The same part is $15.75 on Ebay.

    I picked it up for 9.99 at O'Reilly today, same spec. Sadly, it's thunderstorming here so...no working on the car! (I don't have a garage, sadly)

    I'm seeing $15.58, for item #4. Front gasket is more, but I think we're talking about the one adjoining muffler.
