    Air Lift 1000 Install

    I may have looked over this in the thread, but worth asking: Anyone running these in a set of Tough Dog gold coil springs (or any wider upgraded springs)? What size is recommended? Running 22.5-23" hub to fender in the rear.

    Is this PDR-able or am I looking at body work?

    There was slight success. I was able to reduce the size of the larger dent quite a bit. There's an inconvenient amount of space to get my arm behind the dent, so leverage was tough. Eh, it's something.

    Is this PDR-able or am I looking at body work?

    I'm going to play with the larger portion of the dent today from behind the interior door panel. Besides the obvious of not using sharp tools to poke, are there any suggested trick for massaging? I've seen people try to inflate small footballs or similar to give even, conformed pressure. Not...

    I want to upgrade my 2001 LX470

    Welcome. There are a bunch of threads discussing tire options. It's going to depend on some info not mentioned here. You'll probably get some suggestions in this thread, but I'd recommend hitting the search button at the top right and go through what's already been posted. You'll find way...

    Highest front end "lift" with OEM components?

    Hell if I know, I'm not an alignment expert. I can only speak from my own experience which has been consistent in 2 different lifted 100s. Just 1/2" in the front makes a huge difference in handling and steering.

    Highest front end "lift" with OEM components?

    You don't really want these trucks level. Because of the IFS, they need a little bit of rake to keep the steering working properly. Too high and you'll feel like you have no steering control like a top fuel car during acceleration. There's also terrible torque steer and you're much more likely...

    2000 land cruiser. 56k.

    From the factory they won't but I believe there's a quick mod for it in the FAQ at the top of the forum.

    2000 land cruiser. 56k.

    That thing looks to be in the wrapper and one HELL of a deal at $9k. Holy crap, I paid more for mine an with 218k on it and not as nice. Congrats on your new toy. But I think I'm the dissenting opinion here. That color is absolutely hideous :oops:

    Is this PDR-able or am I looking at body work?

    Thanks! I was thinking of pushing from the backside as well. Hell, if I could find just a door from another truck I'd do that!

    Rear Wiper Arm Upgrade/Replacement - JDM OEM Parts

    I don't disagree. If I situated it lower it would have hung off the glass on to the paint. That's my HOV pass.

    Rear Wiper Arm Upgrade/Replacement - JDM OEM Parts

    I bought this one: eBay link You have to modify the arm to put pressure on the window. Where it pivots, there are two plastic 'arms' inside that need to be filed down to allow it to compress beyond the original position. I stuck a round skinny file in my drill and had it done in a few...

    What have you done to your 100 Series this week?

    Every oil change at 5k miles. Or after every trail day. I make a point to wipe off as much excess as possible to keep everything from getting grimey.
