    Help needed identifying a part

    So I sold off my 80 series a while ago and was able to pick up a 2003 v8 4runner with 155,000 miles on it for $3000. I've been doing a lot of maintenance on it so far. Pulled the entire interior out and cleaned the carpet, seats.....everything, it was a total mess. Put new cv's in it and just...

    Builds 400HP 6.2L LS with 6 Speed auto swap....no lift. Plug 'n play swap kit in development

    For the manifolds you want to stick to factory cast parts, because they look stock. You want to stay away from any kind of tube manifolds/headers. Those would be an instant fail on the visual, unless they have a CARB#. It would be best to retain the factory cat, re-routing the pipes to relocate...

    Builds 400HP 6.2L LS with 6 Speed auto swap....no lift. Plug 'n play swap kit in development

    It would have to be from the catalytic converters back. You would need to use the factory exhaust manifolds unless you found a set that have a CARB certification. The main problem is the visual inspection. The smog guys do a visual inspection to ensure there are no aftermarket parts or...

    Builds 400HP 6.2L LS with 6 Speed auto swap....no lift. Plug 'n play swap kit in development

    In Kommiefornia the emission standard will be for the year of the engine, not the chassis. The engine must be newer than the chassis. In my 95 cruiser I can put in any engine model year 95 and up and it must retain all factory emissions components to remain legal. You cannot install an engine...

    Help with metal tech upper control arm install

    Can you post pics of how the joints fit in the frame side mounts? Mine wouldn't fit, the lock nut would make contact with the mount and I couldn't tighten them.

    Help with metal tech upper control arm install

    I wouldn't/didn't. I only removed one at a time and when I did my adjustments I only adjusted by one rotation at a time.

    Help with metal tech upper control arm install

    I put the Jonny joints on the axle side and when adjusting the pinion angle I put the floor jack under the nose of the 3rd member. You don't need to jack it up a lot to change the angle. I did the install with the wheels on the ground. The biggest pain in the butt was getting the bolts threaded...

    oil leak, clueless what this part is?

    Is it a transmission cooling line? It's hard to get an idea of where that is. What color is the fluid? Follow the line to its source.

    Trying to figure out which way to adjust these when I install them

    You can check on your own with the truck parked on the street. Get a basic angle finder from harbor freight for $5 and pull your drive shafts. Then hold the gauge flush on each flange.

    Trying to figure out which way to adjust these when I install them

    You'll have to measure your transmission output flange angle and your pinion angle to determine the direction you need to adjust the links.

    Rear axle rebuild, how do I adjust bearing preload without SST?

    It is. I set the socket on top of the rear nut and used a pencil to mark the locations of the studs on the nut. I then used a die grinder with a cut off wheel and cut the notches out of the socket. I started on the small side and slowly opened the notches out until they fit tight on the nut. Now...

    Rear axle rebuild, how do I adjust bearing preload without SST?

    Or you can use three screw drivers. Put one in two of the holes in the "nut", hold both of the handles together in one hand. Then insert the third screwdriver between the others and turn the nut. Watch this vid. At about the 1:30 mark.
