    Yeah but you have to factor in that I can't weld worth a damn and would rather buy a set already welded. There's no way to break them on a trail crawling around? I slammed my front end hard a few times on the trail. I drive like shit. What action puts enough force on them for them to crack?

    Stop by my house and bring beer.

    Hard hits. I've only seen two second gens with bent gusseted spindles. Both were LT trucks.

    Haha I wouldn't mind driving through Tahoe but I don't have any free days anymore now that classes started back up for me. I'm going to file taxes soon and hoard money this winter so I can get new tires. That's still priority #1 before I buy other things.

    I think any Goodyear, wheel works will disassemble and reassemble for you. Not sure if that helps or if you want a 4x4 shop specifically.

    I'll go wherever lol...just need a damn spring compressor that won't break with these 650lb springs. Lmk!

    I'll see how much they want..just don't wanna pay as much as the damn suspension setup cost me,when I could easily do it myself with better spring compressors.

    Do you want active or passive safety?
    DA/SA or DAO?
    Steel or poly frame?

    Those two guns could not be more different from either other.

    Its only at idle, feels like a smallish knock. I know thats a bad thing.
    Runs perfect when in gear, no sluggishness or jumpiness when i give it gas.
    I was going to remove the intake and all that this sat (might not make the mod day) and thoroughly clean everything.
    The plugs are gapped at .43 and theyre NGK G-Power. My old plugs were double pronged, 1st time ive ever seen them on a truck.
    And never, ill buy a new fuel filter this weekend and swap it out.

    So did you put in single or double pronged spark plugs. Our 3.4's require double prong spark plugs.

    Bullshit. This is one of the biggest damn rumors I've seen, and it's spread across every Toyota forum.

    You drop in a supercharger, and guess what TRD recommends for plugs? Denso IK20's which are single grounded iridium plugs. Get a 7th injector kit from Gadget, and guess what he sends? Denso IK22's, same thing but one step cooler.

    The DIS system used in the 5vz produces double the spark used in a conventional ignition system. THE ONLY reason the dual ground tip plugs are used is to to maintain spark plug durability. It doesn't affect driveability or performance one bit. The only difference is you might have to change them a little more frequently than with twin grounds.

    Well fuck me, I learned something new today. How about you send that supercharger over to me and I can test it out myself with some IK20's...:D

    I should add one footnote.
    I would still recommend only NGK or Desno plugs, and would further recommend the dual grounded on a NA motor, but not "required" by any means. Those dual grounded plugs will last you 60k no problem and the NGK BKR5EKB-11 really aren't that expensive from O'reilly instead of the Desno's from the dealer.
