  4. Few questions about ball joints and boot mod.

    Suspension, Axles, Brakes
    Well I changed over my front shocks to Bilstein 5100's yesterday on the middle notch to level the truck. I also installed the RevTek Diff Drop to compensate for that and attempted the boot mod. I put the clamps around the CV boot closest to the differential because you could turn it by hand. It...
  5. New to Toyota and Offroad anything

    I'll start off by saying that my first Toyota was a '78 Toyota longbed. It was rusted, slammed, nostalgic, and could have used some love. I needed to put a roof on my house and paid for it by selling a different vehicle and using the leftover money for the little truck. It got me back and forth...

  8. Bilstein Broke in half

    So Friday I was driving down a very tame dirt road and all of a sudden it sounds like I hit a massive pot hole or bump in the road. Immediately I can tell there's something wrong with the front driver side. At first I thought I popped my tire so I slowed to a stop on the side of the road and...
