Arrow Suspension Complete

Finally completed my lift Everything turned out like this:




Sits a hair higher in the back but the springs should break in and sit pretty level. Also they are a ton softer than the old handmade ones. that completes my lift and I say it turned out great. my next step is reworking the exhaust. Gonna order that 2525 Aero Muffler today. Can't wait

I had one then sold it. Hated the time I didn't have it on so as soon as I got my new one I told myself I'm never getting rid of it.

Well Got My muffler Installed today Heres how it went:




Went back to a single exhaust but sounds just as good. Dropped $100 on Install with free chrome tip. Factor in $88 for the muffler I didn't do bad at all. The muffler has a deep rumble that sounds awesome. It almost sounds like a 3.4 V6. It has a little rasp but only in the high RPMs. Putting a video up to compare the old and new mufflers. Also got a bunch of leftovers:



Love it

Talking

Well not much going on lately so I decided to show my grandma's '96 Tacoma.

The headlights quit working so me and my dad decided to fix it. I changed the headlights while he changed the switch on the steering wheel. Here's how it went:
Took the grille off which was a PITA.

The reason it was so hard was because she hit something and bent the bumper. So my dad helped me make it somewhat straight.

Them came new headlights and the grille.


During this time he took off the steering wheel and replaced the headlight switch, also a .

Once we completed that she has working headlights again
Gonna change my headlights soon. Thinking about some Hellas.
