    Thanks Man. I needed them. The old steelies were beat to Hell and out of round.

    I'm currently in the middle of making a maintenance list for this ride. It needs some attention to last another 15 years. It still runs strong and gets 28-29 mpg, most modern econoboxes are similar in specs.

    Its all stock with the exclusion of the wheels and tires. Reliability is the name of the game with this ride. Since its my daily I need it just for that. I have always used genuine Toyota parts too. No aftermarket wackyness.

    It will however receive a full suspension rebuild this year. All OEM components with the exception of the Tokico Blues and Tien H Techs that will be installed. The only thing stopping me is time. Once I have the new setup I'll drop another photo here for others to see what the setup is like and I'll give a review of the ride quality. I need a more firm setup for highway driving but I don't want to loose that plush ride the Rolla gives.

    Currently the bushings and the struts are pretty beat, and of course the dreaded rear spring sag is evident as Hell.

    Thanks Gentlemen. No worries. I look forward to sharing some of my near future suspension projects. Plus over the years I have learned how to fix strange things that come up. Like the time the headlights decided not to work at all in the middle of the night. No highs or lows. I'm sure someone here has had that problem already.

    Actually neither. It was a bad ground in a ground junction. The wire actually melted itself. This was after 5 hours of troubleshooting every relay and fuse in the system. I came across the issue. Its actually a bad design and I rectified it by using a thicker gauge wire grounded straight to the chassis.
