    Finished the brakes and the double clip mod. However the double clip mod didn’t solve the clunk sound when going over a bump -_-

    Didn’t have time for the front struts replacement, tomorrow mornings goal...


    Edit: after the front suspension, no more clink noise up front. All sounds buttery

    Yeah, autonation dealerships will charge $400+ but if you call around you should be able to get it around $200

    The local quick lube near me quoted me at around $370 (near Boston). Considering I have ~113k miles of New England winters on mine, it may be worth it for all the seized nuts id have to work through

    Im just sayin if it were me I’d take it to the local yota dealership what’s got someone’s name in the title. the autonation toyota guys seemed dumbfounded that i could get the exact same work they were gonna do for $half at a competing toyota dealership not far from them(Denver area, not sure if location has a big impact on the price but got that whole shabang for $200). Just my 2¢
