Rear springs are original, they don't bear load well at all anymore; a lot of displacement. I have 862s laying around. Free height should be quite close if not just a hair over stock correct? A bit better load rating?
The track bracket that attaches to the window on the rear door, how to slide back into position? The window motor roller falls out because it has migrated forward on the window a couple centimeters.
Me gently and then more forcefully hammering it have no effect. On super snug.
I told my son I would help him install an "external" subwoofer in his 1999. Don't worry he's still a Cruiser kid who likes lifts and being off-road.
We took the rear panel off and voila we see TWO 2Ω speakers in the subwoofer assembly. Each sub speaker has two different sets of wires and I...
New-to-me FJ80, and I note a missing vacuum line (?) that appears to need to run to the Throttle Body. But I have no idea where on the Thottle Body said line would need to run. Nothing else seems to be disconnected? To where should that open VCV port be connected on throttle body...

Dead radio, 1991 FJ80.
I believe a 92-97 Camry radio fits and plugs right in. Does the same apply to the same years and single-DIN Camry radios? Plug & Play?
Something like this:
As to the empty slot, is there some recommended empty tray insert that will work?
I broke my Diamond antenna years ago not even being off-road, but in a wind storm. Wanted a stronger, Oz-style antenna but one that was tuned specifically for North American UHF GMRS and/or Ham (ITU2-8) frequencies. Now I'm making exactly these :). Rugged, radome-style antennas for North...
