    Hello,
    Ive been a long time member on TW and have never been without a Toyota in the garage. I picked up this gem last weekend and gave her a full tune up that includes:
    Toyota spark plug wires
    airaid mit intake tube (the original rubber parts were cracked)
    pcv & grommet (valve was stuck closed and grommet was cracked)
    maf sensor clean (used about 2/3 of the can) light stayed off!!!
    fuel filter
    removed throttle body and cleaned (also found a loose vacuum hose)
    bottle of redline in the tank
    transfer front, rear diff gear oil change
    engine oil change with oem filter
    new Michelin Ltx ms2 265-70-16 (retaining best MPG is pretty important to me)
    5" deckplate mod
    B&M tranny cooler

    next weekend:
    upper and lower oem radiator hoses
    oem long life coolant
    thermostat and gasket

    In the next month I am doing:
    OME 906 rear coils
    OME 880 front coils
    Bilstein 5100s set at 0
    Price is $782 with wheelers assembling fronts.
    Give me your opinions on suspension, i need new everything and figure a mild lift is cheaper than oem replacement.
    front and rear sway bushings
    steering rack bushings.

    Future plans:
    have the roof and front hood painted. The paint is chipping away and oxydising :annoyed:
    head unit and speakers (I also have a sub and amp in the shed)

    :headbang: Thanks everyone. We are under contract and buying a house, :dancingbroccoli: so no purchases other than needs this month. The bank sucks and questions everything.
