With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

NO OIL. Use a dry teflon lube.

Try and find a Spray Teflon lube. Local Hardware store should carry it. You should only have to apray them once a year or so.

Thanks Chris, sounds good. One more question since your online. I noticed when I do my serious offroading, occasionally it results in the entire steering wheel being off center (Turned about 10% to either the right or left) although the handling feels solid. The alignment shop always get it back to being perfect again but the guy said tacomas have a weak bushing in the rack and pinion that can move right or left somewhat. Is there any practical upgrade for this problem or am I just asking too much of the taco?

Thank you

Energy suspension has some Poly bushings, but Im not sure if they are out for the sencond gens yet. I dont know why your alignment has been knocked off center. I have beaten on mine pretty good, and its still straight. Im wondering if the alignment shop isnt setting the cam adjusters tight enough.

What should I torque them to? I'd be curious if the aren't torqued down tight enough. Anything else I can tighten down?

The Uniball gets torqued to 95# or so. Not to exceed 100#. UCA bolt is 83# IIRC.

Not sure. I think about 80 to 100#...The alignment shop shoud torque those though.
