View Diary: RKBA: a non-unique Second Amendment (67 comments)

  •  1996 Toyota Tacoma, 240K miles.... (5+ / 0-)

    ...broken rear leaf springs (middle 2 leaves in each pack broken), hard-used front coil springs in front and tired shocks all around, bad bushings everywhere, worn out tires....

    I'm in the process of replacing pretty much the entire suspension with new parts, including about 2-3 inches of lift (just enough for some additional ground clearance), and new tires.  Just put it up on the jack stands (rear frame and rear axle) last night to prep for some parts removal tonight.  (NOT on blocks, I'm a classy red-neck, damnit!)

    Got all the parts on-hand except the front coil/shock assemblies which are shipping today.  I'd had new brakes/wheel bearings done shortly before it got parked for the broken springs almost 2 years ago, so once I've done this work and changed all the fluids, it should be ready for another 100K+ miles.

    Your hate-mail will be graded.
