@y=mx+b - I recently replaced my head gaskets and put together a summary of the problem observed, diagnosing it, procedures used, tools, parts and helpful tips. It is not exactly a step by step, but it is my attempt to gather all of the best information I could find and put it in one place. I think it compliments the instructions written by forum member, nossliw. Please feel free to add it if you think it would be helpful.

The thread is V6 engine replacement vs head gasket repair ??? and the summary is at Post 135.

Wiring information: Toyota factory wiring manual

This has been very helpful in troubleshooting electrical issue on my 2005 4Runner:
"Toyota Electrical Wiring Diagram 2005 Model"
Pub. No. EWD615U

This is from Toyota Motor Corp and is well worth the price. Add a good digital multi meter (Fluke is my choice) and full set of test leads and you are on your way.

Electrical troubleshooting done correctly

For some excellent information on logical automotive electrical troubleshooting using diagnostic tools and wiring diagrams have a look at
ADVANCED LEVEL AUTO - YouTube

This guy (Erik) is an excellent teacher, and a real professional.

OBD-II introductory information

You may find this information useful in getting to know your new OBD-II scan tool: I am a DIY guy who just invested in an Innova 5160rs tool and "Haynes Techbook OBD-II & Electronic Engine Management Systems", their publication #1026.

The Innova 5160rs "CarScan Scan Tool Owner's Manual Repair Solutions 2" is available for download (I printed mine) and is thorough at 122 pages. The index in the front of the manual is well done.

I didn't find anything on replacing the front wheel seal (backside on knuckle, part 90316A0001). Mine keep blowing out, then crud destroys the ABS sensors. I just replaced the seals, had everything nice and clean (including CV shaft where it will interface to seal), seal went on flat and tight to back of knuckle, slid CV through and into splines on bearing, torqued to spec, drove about 20 miles and saw the ABS sensor was still warning, so figured it was bad. Took it out (usual method - it snaps in half, then have to drive out from the knuckle hole and clean up mess inside) and saw that the brand new Toyota wheel seal had failed. The spring loop and part of the rubber seal were laying inside the knuckle. Took it back out, put another new one in, and have it reassembled now. At least I have no ABS warnings, but this is the third set of ABS sensors and at least the 4th or 5th set of these wheel seals I have had to replace. Does anyone have any idea what we are doing wrong, what is possibly causing this, or any suggestions? This is really frustrating and expensive!

Keep Air Ride and Delete XREAS?

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to replace the XREAS with normal shocks/struts BUT keep the Rear Air Ride system?

My 2003 V8 Limited has both and the Rear Air Ride system works great and is awesome for heavy loads and towing... But the XREAS system is starting to leak and I would rather switch to more cost effective shocks.

Looking for a aftermarket option that has the compression range needed to work with the Air System.

Can anyone recommend a rear shock for stock ride height?

Can’t help with the Air Ride thing but the suspension link in my sig has info on X-REAS removal. Within the post are links to the FSM files on X-REAS removal and they may have the Air Ride piece.

For stock ride height, many people go with KYB and the Bilstein 4600 is also designed for that. FWIW, I have experience with the 4600s and found it a great shock but of course ride is a subjective thing.

Do we know if the range of travel for the KYB shocks (or the 4600s) are compatible with + 1.6" and -0.8" rear "lift" range you get with the Air ride system?
