      Tacoma frames dissolve because Dana made them and did a poor job of coating them.

      Anvil replied to the thread AC amplifier test?.
      I never found a way to test the A/C amplifier. I eventually bought a new unit from Toyota. Turned out it was not the amplifier, but a wire issue behind the dash. Unless there is corrosion on your amplifier board, I suspect it is good. I have a...

      Check the frame for cracks near the steering box mount and panhard mount. Check the inner side of the frame as well as the outside. There's a couple common(ish) points where 80 frames crack.

      Primary cause of 'death rattles' is bad caster - factory caster is +3 degrees but if it's anything less than 1 degree it takes very little to induce harmonics that will cause suspension shake at very particular ranges of speed that depend on a...

      I believe the wheel bearings were torqued to 47 lbs inner and 30 lbs outer. I raised the front end and checked for slack at 12 and 6. There was no slack. Going to discount tire tomorrow... Thanks again!

      When you re-did your wheel bearings, what torque did you set them? That could be about enough miles to be a problem again if you followed the FSM to the "T". Otherwise, I would point to the tires and balancing based on that being the change...

      Get them road force balanced, Discount Tire shops typically have these machines. My Coopers were awful for DW, Nittos have been absolutely amazing and not a single weird shimmy since I threw them on and I'm 18 months in with NO rebalance yet.

      I subscribed and read this thread at least twice, maybe more. Because of this thread I replaced all bushings, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, and balanced tires, and a lot of other things I can't remember at the moment. I'm familiar with the...

      That's what I'm thinking. Mr. Phd.

      Yes sir, recently replaced all bushings including Panhards.

      I had a death wobble on my 1997 80 . I replaced bushings, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, balanced tires, blah,blah, blah. I finally replaced the tires with Cooper stt pro 37x12.50r17's. The death wobble was gone. Everything worked great! After...

      There are a few injector cleaners out there, they charge about 20-25 per injector. Rc engineering etc. Look for a heat wrap sleeve that will fit on that EGR pipe to protect the wiring harness. DEI makes a few. Good luck with your build. It...

      The most important part for the rebuild came today! Thanks @NLXTACY at Wit's End.

      I am not as experienced as many on this board. Doing an engine rebuild/replacement is new to me. I openly confess my mistakes and ignorance. I am working with my mechanic on this. Part of the reason I put this up on Mud is to get the input of...
