Installing Wheel Spacers for Toyota 4x4 Solid Front Axle. The pros and cons of using wheel spacers.
How to install wheel spacers on a Toyota 4x4. My thoughts on using wheel spacers, some of the pros and cons of using wheel spacers, and some of the tricks I've learned in dealing with wheel spacers over the years.
Generally, I'm a fan of wheel spacers. The biggest thing is just to realize that you've deviated from the factory tolerances and that parts (like wheel bearings) are going to wear faster from strain that falls outside the design parameters. but, if you're running tires big enough to need wheel spacers, you probably know that already.
I say it in the video, but I can't say it enough: Check those nuts that hold the spacer on often. Wheeling rigs have a freakish ability to loosen everything attached to them.

Tacoma Coil Over Shock Disassembly without a Spring Compressor
In this video I describe how to disassemble and remove a coil over shock from a Toyota Tacoma without using a coil spring compressor.
This is a 2nd Gen. Tacoma (2005 - 2013) and in the video I am using Bilstein 5100 shocks and OME 885 coil springs (that have been painted silver).
Note: Before starting this process I have already removed my sway bar. You will need to remove your sway bar before starting this process and re-install it after you are done.
