    good news! orderd the AC line, should be here this week.

    Bad news, done my calipers tonight..Broke two of the 4 bolts that hold the caliper onto the spindle, and no one around here had them..Had to heat the ear on the spindle, and slowly work the little nub sticking out with a pair of vice grips. Im gonna go to autozone tomorrow, and another little hardware store that has everything and see if they have them..If not i guess its laid up till monday when the stealer opens...Fawkin SIHT!

    Aw man. that sucks dude. sorry to hear. good luck getting the parts you need

    There are some recent pics here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/suspension/156844-tips-installing-front-struts-2.html

    Thanks for the compliments. Of course i love the way my truck looks. But i can't say it's anywhere near as nicely groomed as alphaecko2k5s.

    If anyone ever has a problem with the caliper bolts, I found the only ones that fit, from Toyota. $10 for 4 bolts, and my truck is rolling again. Torque spec on the bolt is 90ft. lbs
