    Did you still have to disconnect the brakes and swing the spindle out? That was my issue. There wasn't enough room to fit the giant C clamp from AutoZone. It was too tall.

    That kit will work, but it takes a bit of finagling. You do have to pull the caliper to the other side, then flip the thing over so the clamp end is on top. Then you have to use the cup on the underside of the ball joint, and one of the flat pieces on top. Then hold it all together while you hit it with your impact from the bottom. It's hard to explain and I've drank beer since then but that's about how it goes. It's easier to see with the thing in front of you.

    Found my ole strip lights I forgot I had. Went out to test. They look more white in person.

    Also investigated PCV valve for me. I will change this out when I do the injectors because I will already be there. 20200630_113156.jpg

    Not sure if mine came with the foam like the 4.7L. So I'm not sure if mine is factory. Either way, can't hurt.

    Yeah pills r guuud. let me know in a month if you’d do it all over again.

    are there any good airshocks available for us 1st genners? And if so is the ride decent or am I expecting too much? OR...is it smarter to do airbags?

    Considering the truck is a keeper, add a oil catch can when you do the pcv

    The pcv hose goes to intake manifold. The pcv spits hot oil and other contaminants into the manifold. Catch can goes in between and....

    From what I’ve read about the Catch Can is it is not worth all the added expense and time to do it. Those little pretty cans are expensive and extra work. Plus they get in the way. Some engines they are worth doing but not all engines. This is what I remember from the studies on it.

    Main thing is making sure your PCV Valve is working.

    I paid $35. If it actually keeps oil out of my intake manifold then I'm good with it. There are different types and it can get complicated and expensive but keep it simple.


    Edit: I wouldn't bother if I plan on selling the truck in a few years. If I plan on keeping the vehicle long term then yes I will add it

    I think I will do my own research regarding this topic.

    I'm not saying either is right, nor wrong. I want to find what works for me.

    Thanks for the input fellas.

    Since we are on the topic. Passenger side valve cover has a vent that goes into the intake tube. This vent is most likely the culprit for the gunk in the throttle body. The pcv hose goes into the intake manifold. When I was swapping the injectors I cleaned up as much gunk as possible but the catch can goes in between the pcv side. The unit I have is sealed and I'm wondering if the vented unit could possibly bypass the intake all together. My thinking is to reduce the intake temperature as well as keeping the oil out.

    I'm going have to do some research as well

    For my research I may have to look into Tacoma world studies.

    Higher pop density with my engine than here.

    TW is where I got the:
    PCV valve part #
    PCV grommet part #
    PCV Valve hose to plenum i think? Off hand I'm not sure.

    That was on my first search there. Info a plenty about 3.4.

    Here, not so much. I have struggled for info here. Thats why I haven't done any engine upgrades. Mainly body, lighting, etc.

    Bags would be better. Air shocks will put all the stress on the shock mounts.

    That said I had a set on a Jeep years ago and they worked.

    If I had a Direct Injection Engine I’d do it for sure. Our engines are Port Injection so not as critical. Won’t hurt on our engines.

    IIRC I was reading one guy with our 4.7L Engine and he said he didn’t catch anything in the summer, but caught lots of stuff in the winter (or vice versa). He took his off for whatever reason.

    You catch lots of gookies in your can down there in the Tropics?:rofl:

    Couldn't you just run the pcv hose to bottom of engine bay without a catch can? I mean, how much really comes out?

    I wish I could convince pops to clean his shit off the back porch so I could work on rainy days like this. You learn to be flexible.
