what do you need spring compressors for? if im not mistaken, you can just use the spanner wrench, no?

regearing would be awesome. if youre breaking in there you might as well get them air lockers too. how much is that supposed to cost?

Im down for Hawaii Kai cruz. Yeah can use a spanner but the spring is so damn tough im over it. i tried it before and i cant get that thing to spin. ill just take off the springs and have 4wheelparts or some other shop do em then mount them back on the truck. but i want to get everything in first before i start messing with it since im going to do another alignment.... ill probably even try get my damn recon updated so i dont gotta worry...

I'm down Kaena or a parking lot cruise. If we do go Sandy's, I'm going to try the soft stuff at 9psi like last time.

OK guys so I just hit my 10k and my wife's 5k since that dealers in Hawaii don't recognize us dealers maintenance contracts. What oil should I put in the taco?
I'm thinking royal purple but that's what I used on my older used vehicles

Here is what I did to crank my coils. With truck on the ground, (or wheel off, jack on the LCA) I wrapped some ratcheting strap clamp around my coils and tighten them as much as possible. Then jack up the truck and most of the preload will be out. Much easier to crank them this way. Spray some lube too.

I just go with mobil1, its cheap from Costco and there's a coupon for it now.
I think spending the extra money on factory filters is more important.

I use Royal Purple, but really any oil is good for Toyota, Nissan, or Honda engines unless you are going to crazy modify them

Speaking of recon.. was thinking of going to get it sometime soon after an alignment. recently got some 17x9 wheels. Tires now sick out a bit past the fenders. Will I need extensions to pass recon? Tread that touches road is right in line with current flares... obviously rear mud flaps don't cover all the way anymore either....

Tread will be a tossup; technically if you were to drop a plumb bob down from the fender, the furthest out tread block that contacts the road must be within that plumb bob. But if it is right on the line, it is up to them. Mine was 1/4" inside so I was good.

But the garden flares are fine as long as they are held on by screws or clips. Tape can be used also, but not as the sole means of attachment.

And rear mud flaps are required to cover the full width of the tire (same again, just the tread that contacts the road, not necessarily any sidewall bulge) and at least half way down the tire. Again, you can make mud flaps, but they have to be held on with they consider permanent means (screws/clips).

What brand are people using for extended mud flaps?

Anyone out there with the 05+ tacoma with 17x9 rims go get safety or recon and pass recently??

I think I grabbed a pair of whatever was cheapest at checker and bolted them to my existing, so they would be long enough. Not pretty, but passed.
