    o'reillys sucks do ever buy anything from them unless ur driving a beater and want the cheapest parts possible...for electrical parts such as alternators and starters i prefer Dealer or depending on the manufacture Bosch or Denso


    look for Amsoil or Redline way better

    I'm not a big fan of Amsoil, nothing against it, just not for it either. But a lot of the guys I know on the mainland swear by it.

    I guess I just been a Royal Purple guy for years now, I think since 04? Never head any problems. I'm going to send my latest off to be tested. I also run two of the red filtermags on my K&N filters. Kinda overkill for a DD but whatever :)

    For anyone who cares, the NAPA in Kailua still has K&N HP oil filters on sale for $12ish. Same price as on amazon!

    yeah next oil change im going straight to napa. i need a better oil filter than the fram ones. i heard they are cheaper than cheap.... but thats what i get for going to o'reillys

    So i have been searching and wonder after Nate came by, if anyone has the MX 6 coilovers on their truck. Is the right and left different from one another, meaning is there a spacer on one and non on the other? Ill take pictures later. I was told they were different before the lift was put on, but i never thought anything of it. Now im curious to see others.

    otherwise im going to 4wheelparts today or tomorrow.

    Anybody have an exhaust shop that they recommend? I'm looking to ditch my primary cats with some test pipes. But I still want to keep the secondary cats.. Need to keep it under $200.

    I believe the only difference is the orientation on the bottom where the cup sits on the shock, supposed to help with sway bar clearance.

    now the engine makes a very weird noise, I have come to the conclusion that I have some water in the engine and lost engine oil some how.

    Drivers side c/o with spacer - you can see where the sway bar nut has scraped the c/o spacer

    [​IMG]

    passengers side c/o without spacer - the difference is this one can be adjusted maybe a half inch more to be maxed where the other one has an inch and a half...

    Might could try pulling a spark plug and sticking a borescope in to look for water? And drain the oil to look for water.

    Me to I use royal purple in my 04 for 6 years I like it. Don Quijote has them and the rp oil filters. They also have sales on them 5qt and I think 8.99 per qt. when I went in for service toyota has them for sale instead of toyota oil when getting service at motor imports kinda ripoff tho.

    Ya, I checked the oil, its incredibly low. I did change the oil a month ago. so it has been recent.

    I'll do what my brother use to do every time he hydrolocked his engine, Drain the oil, spray a shit ton of WD-40 in the engine, what for a while then flush out anything else with some more oil, and then fill it up. :D

    Sorry, I don't. But if you find one, it is worth the effort to remove the shocks and adjust them, instead of adjusting them on the truck. Been there, done that, don't want to do it again :)

    She is no longer the same Sport that I bought!!!
    Depends on how thick and how big. I was looking into a custom project and wound up finding that only Mins Plastics downtown had any plexiglass that was worth buying.
