UPDATE: So recently my trac has been down a few time due to minor repairs and parts sourcing but so far so good.
finally came around to installing the Work Emotions CR KAI which i think looks awesome but maybe can use alittle lowering to make it look even more awesome

I also added some 4Runner mud flaps with the 4WD logo just so people know this aint your ordinary Celica

HID KIT and Hella H4 Housing looks great "big difference"

Looking good. Mud flaps turned out nice. Are they just off the self 4runner mud flaps?

:cry: this car seems to never give me a break when it comes to maintaining it! all i ask is for a month without replacing something just a month to be able to have a peaceful ride anywhere without hearing a different noise other then the usual.
so today i yet again i began to hear strange noises coming from the driver-side tire which sounded like a consistent knocking so i pulled over asap to check out the problem but saw nothing so went back on my way with the noise still happening. once i got home i lifted the front and examined the wheels only to notice alot of play while shaking the tires only to find out that the axle nut was loose and causing it to shake so i torqued it to factory specs and thought nothing of it cause the noise was gone. While taking a 1 hour drive to pick up a friend i heard a loud bang underneath the car and thought i hit a rock or something so i was able to make it to where i was going then checked out what happened only to find out i lost the axle nut and the axle was just stuck inside the wheel hub plus to make things worse all the auto shops around the were closed cause it was already 10:30pm. :( I was trapped in a parkinglot, no place to find a axle nut, no help in sight and a somewhat disabled Alltrac so me being the crazy person i'am i took a wild chance and drove the trac as slow as i can home without taking sharp turns which i was lucky enough to get her home.
The next morning the disassemble began and diagnosing what had happen was a must! you know what i wont explain it ill just put up this pic and you tell me whats wrong with the picture

Wonder if where the axle nut was got weak from not being tight, and when you tightened it, it stretched and was just bound to break with heat. Either way, time to replace that axle........may also want to check the wheel bearing now.

The norm for all of us. Don't feel alone. Mainly why I don't daily drive mine ever ... I may drive it to work two days in a row sometimes but that's more to charge the battery up since I haven't moved to a house with a garage yet.

Update of the month: At the end of this month my Trac will be getting a new transmission and clutch installed which will be awesome "I'll finally have third gear again" I'm crossing my fingers in hopes that the transmission is fully functional and my speedometer will finally work lol BTW this time ill be paying a shop to do it which he said it will be done in a day "he even know about these cars" so I trust him PLUS my company has been doing business with them for over 25yrs. As for general maintenance and problems my passenger front wheel well atleast around that area is still Making grinding noises which I'm still lost about where its coming from and every time I bring it to the shop the noise disappears but for now I will tend to the transmission so I can FINALLY move onto adding performance parts :D
