    Same here, these threads remind me to service stuff quite often but keeps me rolling. I’ll probably buy oem again when I’m do mine I’m @ around 270 also.

    Not only that but the rack and pinion is in the way and you have to wrestle the damn thing.

    :rofl:And checking tire pressure, and if you get lucky and compressor is already aired up you might be able to add air to the tires in that 30 min block. Otherwise throw another 30 min block on to the task time:rofl:

    Jumping into this thread as I think this is probably the best place to ask...

    Cam sleeves are definitely fused solid on mine. :(

    Has anyone who had to cut their cam sleeves replaced them with OEM cam sleeves or gone with aftermarket? I'm a cheap SOB and am having a hard time justifying spending a lot of money on essentially a few chunks of Toyota branded metal.

    Didn't have to cut mine; having said that I have a new set by SPC if you want for less than new.

    Bought them about 2-3 months ago when I replaced my LCA bushings.

    Don't waste your time and money on the SPC cams. They won't hold an alignment, and will strip out sooner than later, and not allow it to be aligned at all.

    You could also hit up a salvage yard and see about finding a Tacoma or a 4Runner to strip the cams out of.

    I would... except i've planted the car where it currently sits. She's only got two wheels on her at the moment and has only storage insurance until the end of September.

    Nearest decent salvage yard that I know of is a good hour's drive away at least.

    We're biting the bullet on this one boys. Buying OEM replacements. Considering all the money I've saved doing other jobs myself, I think I'm still well in the green.

    :rofl: Totally understandable. Do yourself a solid and toss a little anti-seize on the new set for good measure. Can't hurt!
