Which Fog Lights would be the best buy? Are there any for other Toyota
vehicles that will fit? Would also need wiring info.

I need some help, All windows but my driver will not roll up or down. I checked fuses and that is not the issue. My truck might of experienced some salt water spray after the hurricane but I doubt that did anything, any input helps. I really dont want to go to the stealership to fix it, thanks in advance

Check the little black switch on your door. I turned it off on accident while cleaning. It kid proofs the windows

Question Leaf spring help?

So im a proud new(to me) tacoma owner, i bought my truck with an existing spacer lift on the front, and it has these "super spring" type helper springs on the rear. The truck sits very close to, but not quite level, so i ordered a set of tough country AAL's. now im unsure if i should do the aal with the super spring thing or without....thoughts?

I have something similar from Fat Bob's Garage (click here). Even w/ these 2.25" spacers my camber is out of spec using stock upper control arms, thereby wearing the outsides of my front tires more quickly. If it tells you anything I have new Light Racing upper control arms and complete ToyTec coil-overs (Bilstein 5100s w/ Eibach springs) waiting for me to install them in place of the spacers.

Remove the superspring kit when you use the aal. The supersprings are for weight capabilities only and will make your ride horribly stiff.

I've been looking at the Toytec lift install for how to install 5100's. Looks to be the same basic's as far as removing the strut/coil assembly and disassemble.

Just had to ask though if there is a thread specifically for 5100's?

If not would be a good Idea since the 5100's are so popular on TW.

Just ordered a set today and am contemplating doing my own install. Doesn't look too hard.

Any idea how much a shop would charge to disassemble and reassemble the strut/coils for me?

One other thing, I thought I saw somewhere that the lower A arm bolts need to be loosened to allow it to drop enough to remove the strut assembly. This was not shown in the Toytec install, is there any info on this or do I remember wrong?

Thanks!

Here you go: http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/61...lled-pics.html

And from the first post in this thread (not 5100s, but a ToyTec spacer lift):

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...mtrdsport.html

The fourth picture down shows you how to disconnect the lower control arm from the spindle in order to get the strut in/out.

How much your shop would charge depends on their hourly labor fee and how long they allocate to the job. Shouldn't take them more than two hours for both sides, so if they're around $90-120/hour it could cost you $180-240-ish.

Thanks, didn't think to look on TN but did search here and with google and found nothing.

As far as the shop, I just meant about them doing the coil swap if I pulled them off the truck.

Just wire it into your illumination wire and whenever your headlights are on your interior lights are on. The glovebox will be closed when not in use so no reason to have it shut off. I used orange (to match the stock interior illumination) flush mount, wide angle LEDs and lit up the front cubby where the cup holders are, the little pocket below and to the right of the steering wheel and then the center console. It's cheap and simple and only requires effort to find out how to remove interior parts to run wires and drill some holes.

I've read about people burning their house down running the fart fan in the bathroom. Does this mean I shouldn't use mine? Done properly there are no concerns. Yes, always on. Use the proper LEDs and they won't get warm or use much power so there's no reason to mess with switches and such. Just wire everything to the illumination wire and be done.
