I took the car out for a family drive down old route 66 it drove great. No mechanical issues to speak of, but the old mother road was pretty rough on the OEM suspension.

A couple updates for anyone still tuned in.

1. I was getting weird boost spikes, so I redid the hoses and it is at 12 PSI max now.

2. I also bought a HKS 120mm silencer that should be here this week.

3. I also ordered a Cusco 152 477 A Lower Arm Type II so hopefully that comes in soon.

I'm debating on what to do for the suspension. I replaced one of the rear shocks that blew a while ago. I used a salvaged OEM one, but I had a hard time finding one. I am sure that the other isn't too far off behind.

I also cleaned up under the hood tonight, but it needs some more work.

So i had an idea last night that I need to get rid of some of the junk in my garage. I have an old OEM bumper for my 4runner with these projector fog lights. I wondered if maybe they would wire in and fit my RC bumper.

And they did line up pretty good behind it,

just the headlights

...not too bad I guess.

How much are you looking to spend on coilovers?

It depends, I was trying to get a set of used Tein SS from a guy on here for under $700. If that falls through I was looking at the CX racing ones which are around that same price. If I can't find a good deal on a set I will just wait until I get back from this next deployment.

Lol we are in the EXACT same boat. Those Teins he is selling look a little rough but still a decent deal if not blown.

I was kicking around selling my tein HAs but I have a hard time letting them go too cheap since they are fairly low mileage. If I keep them then I will likely extend my strut tower to lower the car more and retain suspension travel. It's hard to sell a part when you know you can't get near what they cost back out of them. I think they were 1600-1700 new. I need to call some places for quotes on doing the strut tower vs the cost of a new expensive suspension setup.

James,

I am still waiting to hear back from that guy on a shipping quote. I'm hoping to hear back this week.

No sir, VIS replica hood here. The dimensions and curves on it are pretty close and the CF looks black depending on the light. I think I will get it painted to match this summer.
