    I started out with the goal of chasing a noise i hear turning lock to lock in 4wd...

    When i took my wheels off and the usual suspects were all tight i figured run it until it talks louder or something breaks.
    I then moved on to an abs light, i had a feeling i knew what one it was and tried a week ago to get it out with no sucess. Today i gave her hell and pulled it in half. I had to drill the remaining part out and heat up a screw to get it all out. It came right out with the screw and immediately i knew why it wasnt working - it was covered in grease. I think it must have been wheel bearing grease possibly tie rod grease that ran down onto the knuckle.
    So after looking into the abs hole with a flashlight, i knew i had to take it all apart to get the grease out of there... And in doing so i noticed my axle nut was finger tight - i hope that was the cause of my 4wd noise!
    I cleaned the splines with brakleen and put a tint bit of new grease on them and put it back together.

    Then i decided to stop stepping on this old s10 bed mat everyday and cut it to fit my ned. It was in my 97 s10, then a 01 ranger, then an 07 tacoma now my 06 tacoma.
    What a life for a bed mat!

    312$ if you buy the sensor from a stealership.

    The same shit everyone else has.
    One of my wheel speed sensors got destroyed when a wheel bearing went bad. I took a gamble and replaced it with a non OEM Amazon part. 25$ for both fronts. This was 2 years ago, and the part is still working fine.

    If you slide the seat forward all the way, then slide it 8 clicks back, that’s the forward limit it’ll slide.

    How easy was it to get your old shift knob off? And how does it come of? R or L threads?

    Just buy a new gas door, drill the rivets out, and bolt the new door on. That's what I did. In the event I decide to color match the door, instead of leaving it black

    It’s the oem boot. Just added a small rubber washer to the top to make it look more finished

    Give the Amazon ones a try, super easy to return if they don’t work.

    Spins right off. Normal threads.
