Hey nice rig man. Cool to see a couple more people from the PNW on here too!

Do you happen to know the part number for the 4 hole denso injectors?

Thanks!

EDIT: I'm actually not sure where he got them from, lol! I'll ask the last owner and take a look for myself. There was a guy on Yotatech that was making them himself, but that was a few years before these got done.

Yeah I saw that thread when I was looking around for the part number. Seems like there is some controversy to if his actually improved anything or not. Figured getting a better spray can't hurt anything.

You don't have to go as far as contacting the PO man I appreciate it though. I'll do some more searching after work tomorrow.

If either of you guys want to find some mud at some point hit me up! Don't have any wheeler friends haha.

Dig it. I went down a click-hole last night and couldn't find much at all on these. All I really did see was that it may have just been an injector model upgrade that kept the same part number, but that's based one two forum posts elsewhere. I'm just as curious as you now! lol

I'm just now seeing this! Had I seen it before we met up I would've said yes, lol. Oh well! Just got done mapping all of the 4x4 trails at Tillamook OHV (including fire roads between them) in Gaia, so I'll have live guidance ready to go when you get your new sweet suspension installed.

I'll never get tired of wrenching on this thing, but I'm really losing my patience for not having my own garage where I can do tedious projects at my leisure, lol! Yet another "shouldn't take this long, but it is" weekend project: LCA bushings.

I mostly followed the "Part 1" guide from Timmy on YT, but some of my steps weren't so easy as his. First, it didn't dawn on me until the second side that I needed to remove my diff drop spacers in order to lift it out of the way of the horizontal bolt on the steering rack, but the passenger side wasn't too picky with it still being in anyway; just a little tight. Second, I didn't bother to preheat the bushing that was about to be pushed out with a 6-ton bottle jack, which most likely would've require less force to get it to break loose. Not so bad so far, but I don't think I got one of the bushings all the way by utilizing Timmy's channel-lock trick; it just bent the outer ring before I realized that I could use the ball joint service kit I have for it all to work perfectly on that front face side - 41mm wrench works awesome on the back.

The first major issue came when I went to put the passenger LCA back in. I could get the outer washer in with one side but there no room at all for the other. I messed with it longer that it took to do everything else up to that point and then called it quits after a few hours. After some rest, I had an epiphany that I could just ratchet one side to compress the bushing and then wedge the other sides washer in with the help of a pry bar. Success!




Now, the other side...

I thought I was on easy street! I had the rack out of the way, the LCA came out super quick, and then onto pressing out the old bushing... womp, womp. I could literally see the LCA flexing with the amount of force I was putting on it with the jack and no matter how much heat I applied (the internals were literally on fire at one point) it would not go! I tried to use the ball joint service kit, but that damned outer bushing lip was in the way! I tried to cut and smash it out, but the arm made it near impossible to do about half of it. Well, I needed to buy a reciprocating saw anyway, so off to HD I went!





Two drill bits and a whole lot of swearing later, this is what was left of that finnicky bushing. The crazy part was that once I cut two slits into the metal sleeve it pulled right out! All-in-all, I would not try this again without being able to do it on my own time in my own garage. I was at my company shop until 2 am THIS MORNING putting it all back together and cleaning up... and I still had to take the company truck home because the alignment was all wonky with the addition of Sonoran Steel 1/4" strut spacers done at the same time.

Speaking of the spacers...

They were supposed to give me about 1/2" of additional lift up front, which should've still kept about a 1" rake. At the moment, all four fenders at ~39" from the ground, which seems odd. I read a post on here about someone questioning if the UCA bushings could add a lift, with the general consensus was that is could offer a slight lift because of the droop you'd get with bad old bushings, which I had, but this seems a little excessive. If anyone has input then it'd be appreciated! Well, off for the alignment!

Changed out the lower trailing arms for some big boy Rokmens...



Also put some Strongflex bushings in the panhard bar and re-installed in the lowest setting of the drop kit (was in the middle for the previous lift that was 1.5" lower). Have some more to put in the upper trailing arms tonight, too. Removal of the stock bushings is relatively easy with something like this:

Advance Auto Parts - Two-arm puller

I recommend finding a washer that goes out past the sleeve and has a smaller ID to put between the bushing sleeve and puller, though. I marred the first bit of threads on the puller because the sleeve ID was slightly too big. I used one of the bolts for the other side of the bar, but I gouged the middle as a result.

... I'm more of a "hulk smash" kind of guy, so forgive my lack of brainpower when it comes to auto work, lol.

The front did end up settling to ~38" after the alignment and some spirited maneuvers on the way home from the shop, which gives me a stance that I am more than happy with! No more rubbing with the 33's and no pinchweld modding!

Finally took her out for a proper shake-down!



Me and the dog went to Tillamook OHV to start learning how the 4Runner handles amidst the roots and rocks. I'm glad that I waited until everything in the suspension was at a stopping point because I was not ready for the classification levels they give these trails in relation to ski trails! I stayed on blue squares all day and if that's how they normally are then I don't think I'll ever be attempting black diamonds without some serious encouragement, lol.

Before I went I mapped all of the 4x4 trails based on the map that @LS-4Runner hooked up into Gaia, but at least two of the blues were either completely or partially blocked due to new logging that's going on.



My last run of the day resulted in having to backtrack because of this, which turned into a much more interesting run the second time around; even my awning was getting some abuse! I learned that the stock fuel tank skid sucks, so the RCI group buy on here can't come soon enough. I also think it would be wise to get some shock protection for the back because there were some rock gardens that could easily crack something around the axle.

Needless to say, I'm now hooked! If anyone has websites to share in regards to finding other places to ride then post 'em. Wanna head out on a weekend? SPEAK UP!

... there were a ton of people on the trails, so I didn't want to be that ******* that stopped in the middle to capture the ultimate flex shot. Ah well, maybe next time.

It's great you had the opportunity to go out there and explore.
The cedar tree trail is closed up there for logging at the moment, unfortunately it is also one of the best trails in TSF for 4x4.

On a side note, I've just finished to install the new suspensions this Friday and can't wait to take it out and test it.

Thanks, peeps!

I have some sort of weird low vibration around 60-75, especially when climbing hills, after yesterday. To me, it has all of the classic signs of an unbalanced tire(s), but I've never dealt with larger tires before and I'm used to the vibrations being much more pronounced at that speed.

I'm not ruling out axles or bearings either. Both have had one changed in the last 35k, but I'm a stickler when it comes to stuff I haven't done myself. After the (what I would consider) abuse everything received yesterday I'm not willing to leave anything not new off of the troubleshooting list. I'll be jacking up the front and giving stuff a jiggle tomorrow, so fingers crossed it's something easy! Lol
