Well, despite my stitches, i worked on the 4runner. im stubborn as frig haha! I did it all without lifting too! not bad. I got the rear axle under the springs, installed the ubolts, then jacked it up and bolted the tires on! awesome! I have a seized caliper on the back though... So i have a few little things i need to do. Gotta move the spring hangers forward about 5" as well to center the axle and line up the shock tabs! Thanks for Watching!

94 4Runner: SHE DRIVES NOW! (08/26/11)

I got the rear driveshaft in, its such a drastic angle haha! i hope i dont start going through ujoints now hahaha! Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: 3.4L Custom Crossover Pipe & Add a Leaf to Front Springs (08/16/11)
Well, I start the day off by taking a shot of that 5 hour energy extra haha! not the best way to start the morning... ANYWAYS! I got down to the house, and started working on the front leaf packs first thing. I got the packs broken down, and added a 1988 Ford Ranger leaf spring (i think the #3 spring from the pack) to my 3" rear lift springs... When i dropped the motor in, i lost an inch of height. the 4runner was sitting PERFECTLY level till then... So i had to add a leaf. The Ford springs Boosted the front up another 3"! so i am sitting 2" higher than before! Then i had to run into town and get some Exhaust pipe bent to start working on the crossover pipe. the guy i talked to said they could do 1 7/8" pipe, but forgot that they dont have those dies anymore, so they couldnt bend my pipe... instead, they made me the crossover pipe out of 2" and gave it to me for a really good deal, plus they threw in a piece of 2.5" that i put to good use! now i just have to figure out how i want to attach the next piece to this crossover pipe... im going with 2.5" all the way back, so the stock toyota flanges arent going to work for me... Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: Rear Axle Positioning (08/12/11)
Well, I got the spring hangers cut off Beastie today, then I welded them to the 4runner frame. Moved the axle 4" forward, and set the shocks, brake lines, shackles, everything up just perfectly! also centered the tire in the wheel well! Then I ran the rear brake lines, got them all tied in. I need to rebuild a rear caliper though, Ill do a video on how to do that soon. I also started on wiring. I got the fuel tank wiring all figured out! now I just need to fix the small leak in the tank ffs... I need to put another leaf spring up front to level the truck out once the engine and stuff is in her. She's sitting level right now, and i have a TON of weight to put back into her... 80% in the front though haha Thanks for Watching! p.s. who read everything this time?

94 4Runner: Rear Disc Setup & More Little Things... (08/25/11)
Well, I woke up early today so I could get the driver side shock tower welded before the sun hit it haha! I got the brake line flared too, but not before I forgot to put the fitting on first DOH! Then I show off my rear disc brake mounts, and swapped out the axle seal. One thing i forgot to record though, was the rear wiper assembly... I went over to my buddy's place, and grabbed the wiper assembly off his parts 4runner. Then I started putting the interior back together a bit. I still have to repair or replace the power steering box, run Exhaust, and get front shocks. The rear driveshaft is finished, and will be going on tomorrow! might do a little romping vid for you guys! haha! Thanks for Watching!

How to Remove a Birfield Joint (The fast way) aka The Camo Method Toyota 4x4 Solid Axle
This is the fastest way to access a Birfield joint. This method removes the knuckle as an entire assembly from the Toyota soild or live axle (1979-1985 U.S. trucks). Because the knuckle can be removed an an entire unit you don't lose any of your wheel bearing pre-load. This method works great on the trail if you break a birfield and need to replace it. If you're looking for bomb-proof replacement birfields, this is the only place to go: http://www.longfieldsuperaxles.com/products.php?product=27-SPLINE-BIRFIELD Bobby Long's "Longfield Super Axles" The "Camo Method" is named after a moderator on Pirate 4x4. I don't know if he actually came up with it, but we've always called it the "Camo Method".

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check out this article I wrote on the topic. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/diagnosing-noises-in-your-car Video on CV boot replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S-ofMoWsr0 The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay Dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.





Installing Wheel Spacers for Toyota 4x4 Solid Front Axle. The pros and cons of using wheel spacers.
How to install wheel spacers on a Toyota 4x4. My thoughts on using wheel spacers, some of the pros and cons of using wheel spacers, and some of the tricks I've learned in dealing with wheel spacers over the years. Generally, I'm a fan of wheel spacers. The biggest thing is just to realize that you've deviated from the factory tolerances and that parts (like wheel bearings) are going to wear faster from strain that falls outside the design parameters. but, if you're running tires big enough to need wheel spacers, you probably know that already. I say it in the video, but I can't say it enough: Check those nuts that hold the spacer on often. Wheeling rigs have a freakish ability to loosen everything attached to them.

1975 Dodge Sportsman Brake Booster & Custom Leaf Packs! (08/09/11)
Well, I drove into town to pick up a few things. Got a brake Booster for my Mom's 1975 Dodge Sportman camper-van thing. Got that swapped, and its working better. I got u-bolts, longer shackle bolts, and center bolts for the rear leaf springs on the 4runner. I also got a clutch kit for the 4runner :) Well, I took the leaf springs apart, built custom packs, installed them, and was working on getting the rear axle under the 4runner, when I had a bad accident... I was pretty tired by the time i was working on getting the axle under the 4runner. Thinking i was out from underneath it, i stood up... i caught the rusty, jagged, sharp edge of the rear quarter panel with my back... I went to the hospital, and got it cleaned, and stitched up. I did a pretty good job haha, the doctor removed 6 or 7 pieces of metal and debris. He even had to cut a chunk of flesh off because he couldnt get the metal out of it! anyHways! haha, Thanks for Watching!
