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!
