    Re: led headlight conversions

    Hi Lawrenceco

    I shipped the LED headlights to someone on this forum last month.

  2. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    I think it is right that this upgrade will still work without the sleeves. The only thing these couplings do is make the shaft rotate. The shaft is held in place by the bearings on each that are...
  3. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    I replaced the SADS couplers on my 1991 Previa (396000 miles) yesterday and used the Fibi BMW couplers from Pelican parts, part number 26-11-1-225-624. The cost for these couplers was $95.00...

    Re: Previa Inner Tie Rod Removal Tool

    I used the Harbor Freight tool and it worked perfect. I was very satisfied with the tool. First time I've ever changed inner tie rod ends too.
  5. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    I'm going to try the BMW couplers out. If they don't work out, I can always go back to Febest. Both are less expensive now than when I bought the Febest before. Only regret will be the time to do...

    Re: led headlight conversions

    The LED's I have aren't too bright for on-coming cars. I had my wife drive toward me at night when I had the bulbs on low beam and then on high beam. She said even on high beam there wasn't an...

    Re: Previa valve cover

    Totally agree with you Rainbow Bridge about communications and talking together. You can figure out a lot of things if you are able to talk things out a little.

    On my post above, I noticed a typo...

    Re: Previa valve cover

    I changed 2 valve cover gaskets and then did a post check and the real problem, at least on mine, is the valve cover gasket bolts bottom out before the gasket crush is good enough to seal the gasket....

    Re: led headlight conversions

    I bought some LED headlights for about $100 and tried them and don't like them because they don't have a good high beam. Low beam is great but not much difference when you go to high beam. So I...

    Re: Headlight Help Needed

    I polished my headlights and then bought Hella bulbs from Rock Auto for less than $2.00 each. Then I aligned my headlights and now they are great. I'll bet the problem most people are having with...
  11. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    Thanks for your help Previologist,

    I'm going to try these new couplers and I'll let you know what I find out. They must work because a lot of people have used them and after getting the bolts...
  12. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    Thanks Previologist,

    Do you remember if there was an installing issue with the different inner bushing stick out pattern of the BMW versus the Toyota style? I'm trying to understand before I buy....
  13. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    Thanks John,

    I try to minimize the use of my AC too and I think that is why this last set of my couplers has lasted as long. I will find out the answer to this question when I install these new...
  14. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    Hello John and All,

    I have looked at the BMW coupler and one thing that is different than the Toyota original is that the 6 metal sleeves on the BMW part all stick out the same amount on each side...
  15. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    Thanks for this information John. I'm going to use the BMW parts on this upcoming change. I want something better and these certainly seem much more heavy duty and these guys had very good results...

    Hello John,

    I forgot to say thank you for the link to the BMW part.

  17. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    Thank you for your reply John.

    I think I can still get the Genuine Toyota couplings for a '94 to '97 but as far as I can tell, Toyota doesn't provide replacement couplings for '91 to '93 year...
  18. Re: Where is the best place to buy the best quality SAD coupling kit ??

    I am new to this forum so I'm sorry if I'm asking a question that has been answered a thousand times. I've read this thread on the SADS couplings. It is extremely interesting to me because I have...
