I decided to replace my stock springs on my 2000 4runner 4x4 with 99 springs. I gained a huge 1" lift. I also replaced my rear shock bushings with polyurethane ones I bought from Energy Suspension. I had @infamousRNR helping me which made the job easier.

Hey Tim, I have to say that your list of DIY videos is progressing along nicely. I've watched a couple and you seem pretty thorough.

While there certainly are videos out there for a lot of these things, none seem as comprehensive as the videos of yours that I watched. Plus, having all these videos in one spot and filmed by the same people is pretty handy for a lot of guys I suspect. Had your videos been out when I was doing a lot of those same jobs, they would have been a real godsend.

So kudos to you and Sean for taking the time to document your 4Runner maintence/mods for the benefit of others.

Thanks Woody. Sean and I are stoked people are liking the videos. Our goal is to do a more comprehensive documentation with the videos so people wanting to tackle the jobs themselves have the best possible chance at being successful.

So you have Christopher Lloyd's character from Back to the Future smoking a doobie with the Groundhog from Groundhog Day. You are an interesting dude, and like I said before, I like your sense of humor.

Nah not really, I'm just stoned and thought the idea of Doc riding around with a talking groundhog while smoking a fatty was amusing. (Not advocating driving under the influence either — that's why the groundhog is driving...)

A week ago, I was heading out on a mountain bike ride and I started my truck. The starter kept turning and was grinding against the flywheel. I turned off the ignition and the starter was still trying to turn over the motor. Weird, right? Luckily I was home so I popped the hood, ran into the garage, grabbed a pair of channel locks and twisted the negative cable off the battery to stop the starter. After some research on-line, I found this can happen with starters. I suspected worn contacts could be the cause but why would it stick like that. After seeing write-ups and a video on replacing the contacts in the solenoid, it's common that the copper contacts wear unevenly. Maybe it's because the main power to the starter is connected to that contact? I don't know. The larger of the two contacts in the solenoid is worn thin and the smaller one is only worn a little. It's my guess this uneven wearing of the contacts can possibly cause the plunger to get cocked in there when it engages and cause it to stay engaged. Who knows. Anyway, replacing the contacts and plunger fixed my problem.

Here's the video I did of the repair. Enjoy the show!

Cool thread...If I can toss out a suggestion, maybe add a Table of Contents with links in the OP.

Adjusting brakes so you can get yours drums off

Hey Dudes and Dudettes,

Here's a short video on how you can turn your drum brake self-adjusters from the access hole on the backing plate so you can get your drums off the axle.

Enjoy the show!

30,000 Mile Service Video

Hey Guys and Gals,

@infamousRNR and I got another video for you. We call it a 30,000 mile Service because these are things you would commonly do at this mile interval unless you're using synthetic fluids. We learned on this video to not rely solely on my headlamp as a lighting source so some of the footage came out pretty dark. Where it was really bad, like the part where I'm changing the oil filter, we added some footage to make up for what you couldn't see.

This would be a good video for those that are new to wrenching on their trucks and want to start off with simple things like fluid changes.

Here it is and Enjoy the Show!

3rd Gen 4runner Suspension Lift (Coils and Shock Replacement)

Hey Y'all,

@infamousRNR and I did a favor for member @Jbot and installed a lift for him. It was a mild lift so no need for extended brake lines, diff drop, panhard drop or extended bump stops. Regardless, if you're thinking of adding a lift to your truck or just replace worn out OEM components, the information we provide will help you out.

Enjoy the show!
