Don't forget ttora and ih8mud(especially for TLCs) are both excellent sources for info. You get a douchebag on ttora every now and then though.

I sure am! I'm hoping to do the whole week. Claire and I are just waiting to see how things work out with her job. We'll at least do the three days.

No worries at all. A blue 89 4runner was my first 4X4, I miss it.

I'm the one that makes the spacers so if you have any questions feel free to PM or email sales@sdori.com. www.sdori.coma also has instructions on how to align your truck yourself if you want.

Funny thing about the idler bushings. When we were looking for which idler arm to support as far as bushings we thought we were going to support the high end Napa or the OEM because we assumed they would be the strongest. We went and bought a bunch of different ones and go figure, the $60-$75 arm turned out to also be the best.

So we now make bushings that arm.

Any one know of a good Toy mechanic in SE MI or Ann Arbor area? It looks like I will need to get the timing chain replaced sooner than expected. I don't have the space or time at the moment and need to get it done.

Also, I have the chain and new metal guides (kit), probably need to order a cover. What do you estimate the labor will cost for this job?

Thanks

If so, how much? I'm thinking there is more to come, so I need to plan for stuff. Thanks for offering up.

Still, if this is possible, what mechanics/shops do you guys trust?
