Anti-Sway Bar Bushing Replacement Anti-Sway Bar Bushing Replacement
After running some challenging four wheel drive trails, I found the anti-sway bar bushings were split and badly in need of replacement. It's no surprise really, since I never disconnect the bar while off-roading. The replacement is extremely simple. All you will need is a ratchet and 12mm socket.

By drilling a single hole in an off-the-shelf eye-type shock mount bracket, Anthony Lim was able to open up numerous shock options in the rear end of his SAS'd second generation 4Runner - including installation of a shock that allows full suspension cycling.

Do you have a seatbelt that doesn't retract all the way when you take it off? Tired of slamming the door on it? Sick of having to untangle the mess each time you need to put on your belt? Josh Carlson illustrates how to fix that pesky seatbelt in 10 easy steps.


Tacoma Brake Hose Tacoma Rear Brake Hose
The rear brake hose on the Tacoma is just long enough for the stock leaf spring and shock setup. If you plan on adding a rear lift, the greater rear articulation can easily over-stretch the hose and cause it to tear, resulting in a dangerous loss of your brake fluid. This is a common problem when adding aftermarket leafs, shocks, or shackles. If your hose comes up short, there are a couple of different ways to address it before heading out to the trail for the first test of the new lift.

Tacoma Rear Shock Spacing
When lifting Toyota Tacomas, longer aftermarket rear shocks will be necessary to get additional rear wheel travel. A common complaint after adding these (bigger) shocks is that they hit the leaf springs under compression, when the tire stuffs into the fenderwell. This contact may cause a dent in the shock body which might lead to premature failure of the shock. The following is an easy way to space the shocks away from the leaf spring, while still retaining the factory mounts.

Adjusting the 22RE Air Flow Meter
Whenever changes are made to the 22RE to generate more power, one component that should be addressed is the air flow meter (AFM). On a modified engine, an improper rate of air flow into the engine can negate power increases from other mods, or cause major internal engine problems. With a phillips head screwdriver and a razor blade, the AFM can easily be adjusted to optimize engine performance.
