    I had a 1994 3000GT for a while. Not a VR4 but it was still a fun car. I put a home grown short throw shifter on it, undersize crank pulley, lowered, built my own cat back exhaust that actually sounded good and put 18" wheels on it. Drove that thing from San Diego to San Fran a couple times, even up to Oregon once to pick up a carbon fiber hood for it. My ricer days you could say. Biggest bitch in the world changing spark plugs on it though. The front 3 plugs were like 5 minutes, easy to get to. The rear, not so much. Had to pull the intake manifold anytime you changed the plugs. Made it an almost 3 hour adventure. Same color as this one. I'll have to dig around to find an actual pic of it.

    My gamo rifle is like 1400fps and the rounds i have are a hard polymer tip wrapped in lead that expands after entry like a hollow point. But down small animals no problem

    You could do the 881 OEM coils. Probably be just enough. I ran the 883 which are the same height coil but about 10% stiffer spring rate. It was at 3in until I put serious weight on it to bring it down to 2in. When I put the adjustable coilovers on they are 700# springs but I dropped the truck as low as I could and it is damn nice and still kept my 1.5-2" of lift.

    Top is OME, bottom is coilovers and big tars. :drool:

    It does have a predictable arrival time. I may have a 22 around here somewhere. I can't remember if the kids still have a pellet gun. Though, I'm all about 12ga shotguns.. LOL.. And then there's the AR15.. I'm in the city limits.. I might get arrested.. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Hah, just came across some pics of my daughter's first vehicle. 1991 Toyota Pickup. I put 4runner seats in it for her and new wheels and tires. Stick shift, 4wd with the 3.0 that ate head gaskets but it was a good little truck. She wants a 1st gen Taco because of this truck. Probably wont happen though because of the prices they go for now. She's STILL trying to sell her 2013 Taco PreRunner.

    t4r.org forums get that sometimes. Owned by a large corp that had many, many auto related forums, unlike TW. It's annoying but gotta get info where you can.

    TW is very unique (and good) in that regard. So many of the other sites are cookie cutter versions of major hosting sites like Autoguide or Internet Brands

    @eon_blue and guys with SPC UCAs. How do you go about getting front end alignments? I've had decent luck with the Firestone lifetime alignment program. Though my luck has been on simple suspensions. I know they have quite a lot of turnover and I never know who will be doing the next alignment.

    Do you do any of the alignment setting yourself before taking your truck to an alignment shop?

    Do the caster part yourself and let them set the rest. Only use the camber features if the alignment shop has trouble getting it right with the adjusters in the lower arm. Or if your lower arm has poly bushings things get a bit more complicated because you can use the uppers to defray the deflection to the lowers caused by aligning camber and caster in an opposed manner.
