That would be my choice
Thought I'd post the latest Toyota parts catalogue for anyone that's interested.
You can search your vehicle by entering the frame number, to determine your frame number U use the model code followed by the last 7 digits of your VIN.
So for example a 76 series LandCruiser model is VDJ76 so...

Just copied this.
