6)repeat on other side
7)don't forget to retorque u-bolts

*may want to measure and cut off excess threads on u-bolts before instalation.
So many unnecessary steps...the AP ubolts flip kit is exact size for either 1st or 2nd gen, no need to cut any excess threads off or take any tires off, except the spare. Just leave the truck on the ground (level).

1. parking brake, remove spare
2. pb blaster, remove oem bolts
3. install new kit, torque to 90 ft-lbs

1. unless you are using a heavy duty leaf pack with a lot of leafs. the bolts are too long. the kit is designed for the thickest pack, with the intention of cutting bolts down as needed. 1) so the top of your bolts don't become your new bump stops 2) so you don't have to turn the nut 40 extra times to tighted it down

2. it is far easier to tighten down the nuts from the outside of the truck with the wheel off, rather than hiding sitting under your truck with more components in the way.

3. skip the pb blaster and wrench removal of the old bolts. just cut them off. 4 seconds per bolt with a grinder. quicker and easier.

I have an ABS kill switch but rarely use it. My ABS hasn't caused me issue yet, but I haven't really had to try to stop on a dime off road. I've braked pretty hard, just not with the intent of stopping just slowing down for an upcoming corner and such. Maybe the newer models have a more sensitive ABS system

There is a mod to allow you to use your locker in 2wd and 4Hi

Refreshed my front end with new coil springs, a rebuild on the coilovers, uca and lca.



Will be trying out these Whiteline polyurethane bushings and Moog lower ball joints. Anyone have any experience with the Whiteline bushings?

Ive been trying to get someone to buy them for their LCA's in the DIY LCA bushing thread for a year now http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...ml#post3691528

One local guy I know finally bought them and is installing them this week. He will be doing a write up on them when he is done installing everything.

Nice, I had my buddy at the dealer install the bushings. The kit from Whiteline said that they were for a 2005+ Tacoma, but the instructions only said Prado 125 Series & Hilux 4wd. So far they seem like they will fit, but I will find out over the weekend as long as the weather permits.

Well I think the same model of hilux has the same front end as the 2nd gen Tacomas so probably. I know tbe Hilux's front diff e-locker fits in the 2nd gens.

How Much lift are you wanting to be at? If in the 2" range, 600's are fine. If you want to be higher, go 650's so you don't have to preload as much.

MT folks - thinking about rebuilding my king c/o's. I've watched the YouTube video and it seems pretty straight forward. The one thing I'm wondering is will I need a spring compressor to remove the springs from the shocks? Or will I be able to reduce the preload with the collar such that I can slide the coil up to remove the lower seat? I've tried googling and haven't been able to figure this out... I know you need one for non-adjustable c/o's.... Thanks!
