Default day-um...

I didn't notice or hear anything strange on Fins, did you notice anything driving it?

I'm glad nothing bad happened on the way home.

Started noticing a vibration shortly after the run.

Glad we made it home as well. Thanks

Good troubleshooting!
I noticed some funny vibes before CM. Turned out all three U joints in the rear shaft were in various stages of leaving this life (not too bad considering the CV joints were OEM Toyota from 1984 ). And the splines had play. Englewood Driveshaft made short work of it with one day turnaround and really took care of me on price too.

I corrected the rear pinion angle before CM. After a really nasty few hops on Hummer Hill at CM, I am working on a torque bar now. Next up are heavier rear springs from Alcan (ouch).

Hey its the guy with the "nicest 4runner on the planet" I parked right next to you at the raffle dinner.

When you install the stiffer springs will it still ride level?
