    Randy do you have pictures of tubbing for the 35s? Or know about what date you did it so I can go back and look? Probably won't be the same as the t4r and I've got the skinnies but I'm curious and bored. I went backwards to the mid 3100s yesterday and didn't see it

    edit: nvm it was literally on page 3098 :anonymous:

    If you're really good at digging, you can find that I've also tubbed a 3rd gen 4runner before that. Neither were particularly difficult, just very time consuming. First you have to pull back the carpet and wiring on the inside, then just get to cutting on the firewall.

    Have the coilover removed with a floor jack under it so you can shove it up to full bump. Keep cutting and hammering as needed until there's sufficient clearance. Then weld on some sheet metal to cover it up.

    I also posted up a bunch of pics in here.

    Also @y=mx+b the search function is pretty handy if you're looking for a specific thing. Really narrows it down.

    Thanks! yeah I should have searched, but I just got sidetracked and kept reading backwards further and further because I was bored and you did a lot of neat stuff with the WFH time.

    Initially I think I'm gonna cheat with the SPCs and run like no caster lol with the LCAs pushed forward then hammer/cut what I can. I do have whiteline bushings, but I would like to get to where I don't have to have the LCA bushings all wacked with the LCA pushed forward or limiting travel with bumps to prevent rubbing when turning, so a proper tubbing is eventually in order. I also probably need to get a better than mediocre welder.

    Yep. My parents still live there, and Mechanicsville is where I would still call my "home" as I am barely a real adult. I'm in Annapolis for an internship, but I go back to Mechanicsville just about every weekend to work on my 4runner or help out at home because I live in an apartment and I love seeing my family

    We're almost neighbors!

    I'd say a better welder is a must if you're going to tackle that, something with solid wire and shielding gas. I couldn't imagine trying to weld that thin stuff with flux.

    No that's Mondays, then celebrated by tacos on Tuesday, a little horizontal cardio on Wednesday, generates a dehydration based thirst on Thursday, then all the sudden it's #FullFrontalFriday!

    I sourced an extra set of spindles so I can get them all prepped for LT install. I dont think I mentioned in here that my coilovers are arriving today. By the end of the week I should be an LT boi.

    Guess that would be easiest. I have to call them for an estimate before they'll do anything. I'll do that in a second.

    What's happening to your old spindles? Are they straight?
