    Installed a 3 degree axle shim to hopefully remove driveshaft vibration after a recent suspension upgrade / lift. It's kind weird that the emergency brake cable now rests on the leaf spring, I don't remember it being like that pre-shim. I wonder if there's a fix.

    OME sells a relocation bracket for that I believe. Common after their springs install for the trucks with that ebrake cable location

    The ones I'm finding are for the brake proportioning valve, not the e-brake line / guide. Hmmm...

    Amazon has a two pack of trickle chargers for $40, and they seem to be working so far.

    That's half the battle. Our mini seems fine but the others are dramatic when in gets cold. The AMG dig deep to fire last week. The Tacoma has its own drama.

    My BMW was the same way, leave it for a week and it's a slow cranker... Leave it for two weeks and you need another vehicle to jump it haha

    Ive got a craftsman riding lawn mower I always have to jump if it sits more than two weeks. I think a solar panel would be perfect for a trickle charger that doesn't need an outlet

    So I know the oem aluminum skids are discontinued but does anyone know if the brackets for them are also or are those still available? Thanks gents.

    I don't believe my pump had a ball bearing when I pulled it apart. Journal bearings yes but I'm sure the 5vz one has that as well.

    You only need a tape measure, angle finder and a flat level surface to do a "good enough" alignment.

    It's possible there is a small spacer in the coilovers to account for the driver side being heavier.

    I'd be impressed if someone went through the effort of putting the wrong rack in there. I'd think the wrong tie rods would be more likely.

    Post a picture of the rack and tie rods.

    That was my Taco last week. I drive it maybe once every 3 weeks anymore, and only for 15 mins max so it was hurting.

    Got the Noco 5 to see how the battery repair mode goes.

    Switched gears on my sound damping. More dynamat did show up today so I can get the truck finished.


    today I got my drive lines dropped of to get altered for my duals. Pulled my t case, pulled my rear trans housing to remove the bearing and seal, got it mated back up and rtv.
