Same thing when I replaced rear wheel bearings, retainers & seals as well as valve covers and related parts.
Couldnít resist the lower price advertised on eBay for supposedly factory OEM parts when time came to replace the inner tie rods.
They arrived couple weeks after purchase but I didnít attempt to install for almost a year later.
Once I removed the original OEM parts I quickly realized the replacement parts were counterfeit parts and not OEM as advertised.
Purchased another pair from reputable Toyota dealer, lesson learned.
Still have the counterfeit paid on my workbench to remind myself never to make the same mistake 2X!
When it comes to LBJís, go OEM directly from the dealer.
There are at least some parts that are from OEM suppliers that you can get for cheaper from a parts store. Specifically in my case, Koyo rear bearings from Napa. They are the OEM bearings and they are cheaper than dealership prices AND you get the a set of retainers with each.

Denso rebuilt alternators seem to be good quality also.
