    100 ft lbs I believe. If it’s a LCA it is more of a loud click than a thunk - not being nit picky just trying to steer you in the right direction.

    Nice much appreciated, now that you say that i vaguely remember doing that search a bit ago on here and coming across the thread with all those torque specs. So the interesting thing is it’s more of a loud click now. Prior to the mod i think it was more of a thud. Could have been a combination of both. We’ll find out shortly here. I’ll grab a quick before video also and hopefully a clean after vid

    I think you need your own build thread for this already.

    The same shit everyone else has.
    Not yet. I’ll update my build thread with details at some point.

    This gist of it is.....

    5’ of 4” ABS. 2 end caps. A shrader valve. A boiler drain. 2” cleanout and cap. 30psi pop off. And a shower head on a hose.

    Stole the idea from here

    That sounds exactly like what mine was doing. I didn’t put lube on anything, but I got under there with a torque wrench, set it to 100 ft lb and tightened all four. Only one was loose (around 40 ft lb) sound went away after that.

    Edit: If anyone has a recommendation on painting the red TRD on the wheels blue let me know!

    “Fabbed” up some down and dirty light brackets from some scrap aluminum I had laying around. Had the lights originally mounted to my bed rack I sold a while ago, so they have been taunting me from the work bench ever since. Not the most functional I would imagine but oh well

    Just about an inch up front. Didn’t do leafs yet so no change in back. Gonna order the icon aal dealio and possibly a front top plate spacer when i get the bigger tires.
    The issue with the double clip brake mod still making the clink sound is no more. I guess just getting in there and regressing all the joints n stuff did the job. Either that or the clink was coming from the old coil/shock. Either way sounds looks and feels good. Ppl say the 3rd gen sus on the 2nd gen makes it ride smoother and more planted. My commute to work is on some pretty bouncy construction highways, so I’ll give it a week and see how she feels
