    Soo after picking up my beauty last summer I noticed that the load sensing brake proportioning valve was bloody rusty and then I tried to move the bar and she was pretty seized. I pinched the rubber boot and heard rust crunching :mad:

    I had to make an emergency stop on the highway once and having the back end come around on me was not a nice feeling. I started looking to replace this bad boy. From toyota this part cost about $340 :eek: No thanks!

    I started shopping around the local junkyards but everything I found was in just as bad shape. I stumbled upon a certain gentleman that was parting out his tacoma here on TW. :D

    I got a used LSBPV for a reasonable cost, got her all cleaned up and coated in red oxide primer. Never to rust again!:cool:

    Here was the old one

    Used one after the wire wheel treatment and some rust primer

    Installed with some brake line repairs. Man it is a PITA flaring the lines while they are still under the truck.

    Just a tip when re-installing brake lines whether they be old or new, after they are tightened smear some grease or anti-sieze where the line goes into the fitting. It will keep corrosion at bay and prevent the lines from twisting and snapping next time they need to be disconnected.

    Also scrubbed her down in the bath today. Here is a pic for you all.

    Cheers!

    It feels like a constant fight with the salt! I wish the previous owners would have got the underbody oiled:(

    Thanks for all the comments! Ive put a bit of work into her since last year! Mainly just extended preventative maintenance.

    Give your truck a good underbody washin' frequently I guess.
