    Vehicle:
    98 tacoma 4x4 extended cab
    5100's all around, 2 inch lift, polyurethane body mounts, gibson exhaust, variation of the deckplate mod, intake resonators removed
    I was doing it every 1000k til I got the springs done, with the axle wrap gone all seems fine so now will do it at each oil change about 3000k.
