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: She Rolls Now! (Axles and Wheels Installed!) (08/11/11)
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!

4Runner: Glasspacks + Leaf springs + Clutch Master Cylinder (07/06/11)
Well, i got a LOT done on my 4runner today! i cut apart the glasspacks that i had on my 1985 toyota 4x4 with the 3.4L. They were just too loud! what i did was cut the end off one, pull it apart, and hammered the inner tube flat, then welded it. then i welded the glasspack back together! should be tons quieter! Then i started to clean up the corner in the shop, and found my old ford leaf springs! so i pulled them out, and dearched them a bit, and built custom packs! they will fit perfect on the 4runner! Then i drilled a few holes in the firewall for the clutch master cylinder! all in all, a good day! i got to see my brother for the last time before i move out to alberta too! Thanks for Watching!

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!
