Suspension Replacement Thread

Is there a good thread for suspension replacement? I'm planning on doing front and rear shocks/struts and springs this weekend. I can do a write-up if one isn't already out there. Didn't see anything in the maintenance sticky so I figured I'd ask.

It's a pretty straight forward job with a few pesky parts a long the way. There are plenty of threads out there discussing it. Grant it, you may no be going with a lift but I would search in some of the lift install threads. It should be the same concept. In the mean time, I'll see if I can find something specific for ya.

Here ya go.. http://sonoransteel.com/guide.pdf

That's a great write-up. Installing 5100's and 881/890 with diff drop so it's perfect.

Didn't know I'd have to modify the skid plate. Can anyone running the toytec diff drop confirm this?

EDIT: According to Toytec website it includes skid plate spacers. Perfect!

Suspension install on 3rd gen 4Runner (96-02) - 4x4Wire.com

I know there's more but hey if you're in the mood why not write one up with pics? I think everybody's got a different way of doing things and noobs like me can learn from several sources
