Thanks T4R.ORG & Timmy Tooolman!

I have had my 99 4Runner going on 2 years, been renewing my runner since, Just want to give a shutout to this forum & Timmy for all the very useful information/videos, to complete everything I have done, frustrating but very rewarding!
I have completed a total bushing upper /lower, front and rear replacement, Front upper & lower ball joint replacement, steering rack bushing done! pretty much all bushings except front Diff. bushings (next), VCG: done, Alternator rebuilt: timing belt W/P Done, so many other things on the list, Thanks to this forum! What great knowledge and vast amount of information to be had here.
So after all the reading and confusion (my simple mine) I have OME 2906 springs in rear and have no clue as to what springs are up front... at hub height front: 23" and rear with OME 2906 @22" I have ordered OME 881 for the front (Wheeler's suggestions) will this get me a "close to OME ride height? level, I don't want a reverse rake.Are the 881 springs side specific? I know all specs are an imperial measurement but what is everyone's thoughts after time/settling?
thanks again for all the help you have all provided!

Bill

Hey Bill,

Great to hear the videos @infamousRNR and I have made have helped you out. We appreciate you taking the time to post this and let us know. Thanks!

I don't know anything about the 881 springs but somebody will chime in that does.

@Poorboy64

Here is a picture of an OME 881 I received from Wheeler's. I believe they used this label in addition to one on the spring. If there are no labels, the driver's side spring is slightly taller to compensate for the additional weight of the driver, fuel load, and battery being on that side. Timmy and Sean rule! Hopefully they'll throw another TR4.org get-together when life returns to some form of new normal....

1st Gen is ok. I found out on a wheeling trip that the guy i bought it from didn't weld up the rear bumper correctly. The supports for the swing-outs were barely welded and the one holding my 37" tire broke and the bumper started to crack from the weight of the tire. Luckily I caught it in time and took the tire off before the bumper ripped apart. So, I have to cut open my bumper, re-weld the supports and weld the rest back together. Should be fun. The guy I bought the rig from was a hack. I'm sure I will find more screwey shit as time goes on.

What diagnosing and/or parts replacements have you tried so far to resolve your misfire issue?

I couldn't agree with you more! I'm new to the whole "do your own work on your truck and save a shit ton of cash" thing and I'm loving it haha. Timmy definitely helps keep things simple and easy to understand!

So after rebuilding the complete suspension, front & rear I stumbled upon Timmys video of replacing the front differential bushings with the Duro Bump bushings, to all that have installed these how are they holding up?
Looking at mine the bushing that I can see look a little ragged but no movement from the differential, If they have been holding up might plan on just replacing them, Looks like an easy weekend project?
Any thoughts?
Thanks!

They have held up very well on my 98 and I have gone wheeling with them many times.

Also new to 4runners, but not new to Toyotas (bought a new '88 Celica GT convertible 5-spd, loved it) or repairing my own vehicles (many Vetttes, Mustangs, F-bodies). Also have been catching up the "deferred maintenance" the prior owner of 19 yrs left undone since in bought my '00 a month ago. I also have found this Forum and the Toolman videos a fantastic source for knowledge and expertise.
To up, CEL had been on "for yrs" when I bought the Runner, was running OK but no radio, no interior lights, and DOME fuse continuously blew when I started the engine. Went in thru passenger wheelwell, unplugged the antenna, raised it by hand, replaced the fuse, and have lights and radio. Again thanks to the Toolman.
Then started throwing a P0171 and P0300 and P0301 and P0304 set of codes. I cleaned the MAF and all the codes but the P0301 disappeared on reset. No bubbles in the radiator and no water in the oil, so seems like a tune-up in necessary.
I am done ranting over dealer parts prices ($560 for tune-up parts - 6 proper dual element plugs, 3 coil pacs with boots, a set of wires with boots, 6 injectors, and the throttle body and plenum gaskets to reverse the tear-down), when the Ebay delivered the parts to my door for $200. It is the next weekend project.
Along the way, I will check the status of the timing belt, but betting, since the prior owner doesn't remember ever replacing it, that, at 240K miles, that will be the next project. Already watched the Toolman's video, thanks again.
