    Went down to HF to pick up a jack and a BFH so I could swap out my 139K mile tired suspension for some low mile TRD OR 3rd gen take offs along with a spacer to fix my taco lean. Also finally relocated my diff breather. My GF was nice enough to bring me the beer needed to finish the fronts after getting real frustrated with some rusty bolts.

    Got turned around due to slushy snow, no recovery gear, lack of fuel, and the fact I was solo. Wish I could have kept going. It was a blast! Beckler River RD area in Washington.

    Messed up with my addition skills and didn't order enough terminals from Toyota.
    I forgot I'll need more for the spiral cable for wheel button illumination/ground and cruise (I already have the correct spiral cable).
    I'm looking at my EWD's again to get the qty. correct.
    I'll order them tomorrow.

    The license plate lights were posted by someone else on this thread. I found the set on EBay. Hopefully this link works.

    https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/192824828565

    The lights are direct replacements. I did have to clip a tab off the back of the plastic housing. The bumper has one slot for alignment but the lamp has two tabs. Was a simple snip and fit just fine.

    Did the same snip. Easy job. Housing comes with LEDs preinstalled. I got mine on Amazon with the additional three red LED “marker” lights. Very bright!

    Just went outside to see how many wires I'm going to need. I now have the correct amount.
    I'll order them tomorrow and hopefully make all the connections this week, weather permitting.

    Can't do it next weekend, I'm installing my lift :D

    When does your clunk occur? Mine was when loading the steering then releasing (think backing into a parking spot) most of the time. Sometimes it would clunk over certain bumps, but not always

    Ended up being over tightened lower control arm bolts. After fixing that and the double clip on the brake job I just did, almost all the noises are gone. Unless it’s a big hit, but that’s another story lol

    Maybe it’ll go away after the strut replacement :fingerscrossed:

    What was the condition of the pilot bearing? That nub at the end of the input shaft is where the pilot bearing rides. If it's chewed up like that I'd guess that your pilot bearing is smoked. Did you replace it when you replaced your clutch?

    My thunk is when I’m on the brakes before a bump and let off just before the bump and coast over the bump and it’s usually in the compression of the suspension coming off the bump. Like slowing before getting to one of those speed humps seems to replicate it pretty consistently. And it’s definitely passenger side. I’ll see if i can get a video/audio of it today. Any idea what the torque specs are for the lca? Maybe I’ll just go around and recheck all the uca and lca bolts when I’m in there today

    Old pilot bearing was not damaged any way i could see when i pulled it and replaced it. It had a replacement at 200k miles and then i replaced it again at 245k when i did the clutch again.

    Yea wouldn’t hurt to just check the torque, I marked my alignment tabs with a paint pen, loosened the bolts and jumped up and down on the truck to move the suspension a bit then torqued to spec. He torque specs are on the forum somewhere, I think I googled it and just directed to a thread on here anyways lol
