Front brake line parts numbers?

These came from a montero, not sure the year. They definitely work as I have one side installed and these just in case.

Freaking bloody water leak

Clean and silicone the front of the roof gutter. You'll notice small hairline cracks in the old sealer around the seam and the water most likely is coming in through there (it was on mine, looked exactly like your wet pillars)

Digital EGT and or Boost Gauge Install Tutorial

No witchcraft, or clamps, just a good ol' hardwood spacer planed down to the exact thickness as the plastic temp innards I removed. 2" Forstner bit to sink the back of the gauge into the wood, a little silicone to hold the gauge in place, then the existing screws hold everything in from the back. Su...

Digital EGT and or Boost Gauge Install Tutorial

I just installed the PLX gauge with egt and boost sensors. I didn’t think the gauge itself was flimsy but you’re right the instructions are pretty horribly written. Lots of splicing and soldering. My gauge did come with the 8v dongle. It does mention you need it in the instructions but it’s written ...

L300 1993 headlights needed

Yeah get the LHD version.

I’ll be watching as I’d love to not blind other drivers. I already get flashed a lot as other drivers think I’m high beaming them.

L300 1993 headlights needed

I contacted the company and they asked for photos of my van (91)

They got back to me and said they would fit.

Might be worth a try if anybody is up for it.

L300 1993 headlights needed

If they’re saying they’re for a 99-ON I wonder what the difference is for earlier vans and why they wouldn’t fit or what we’d have to do to make these work. Anyone have experience with later L300 vans and know if these would work? I just emailed that company and asked but have a feeling they won’t k...

L300 1993 headlights needed

i’m not sure these will fit a 93 but I saw these interesting LED versions on ebay and they have a LHD version. they say L300 99-later but they look the same as my 91. I tried contacting the seller but they never responded back about fitment to earlier vans. Can anyone confirm whether these would fit...

PARTS LIST!!!!

I’ve ordered a bunch of parts from them. I ordered parts I had a hard time believing they’d have new (seat recline lever in the correct color, mechanism the headrest slides into) and a bunch of other parts but sure enough I got them. Not the fastest delivery but they’re coming from Japan and I’m sur...

Front end shocks bottoming out!?

My front Ranchos have been great since adding a 3mm spacer to the bottom bump stop. I ordered RS999166 (9.75” compressed) but if I were you I’d order the RS999188 (9” compressed) if stock height. I ended up fitting the Monroe air shocks in the rear and am liking them so far.

Air adjustable shock absorbers

I got around to fitting these air shocks today. Pin was easy to remove, and since I have some poly bushings lying around, I decided to press those in and they fit perfect. Pumped up to 40psi so far and they’re a really nice ride/upgrade from stock. Especially for the price. [img]https://uploads.tapa...

Rear Leaf Spring Upgrade

Thanks again for your clear explanation of things Growlerbearnz. I think I'll try the air shocks out, especially for that price. I just can't afford the trial and error of buying those Dobinsons right now. This will also allow me to afford those 24mm H100 Torsion bars you mentioned in another post. ...

Rear Leaf Spring Upgrade

I read your posts Growlerbearnz, which is why I'm skeptical to add a leaf. I need to lift the rear of my van and measure the unloaded camber in the rear springs. I'm thinking those Dobinsons would be nice but I need new tires too and I just can't drop that much cash right now. Once I know the camber...

Rear Leaf Spring Upgrade

My rear leaf springs are pretty tired and flat and am looking for options to bring them back to life or purchase new. I got very different quotes by 2 local spring shops. One was around $800 to just re-arch and the other was about $500 to re-arch and add a leaf. The issue I've been reading is that a...

Front end shocks bottoming out!?

I saw your thread on that upgrade and I’d love to get those but definitely no H100 in the wreckers in the US.

Will have to do some research as it seems like a very beneficial upgrade.
