    Any of the older Toyo pick-up forums should have everything you need to know about leaf spring mods.
    IH8mud and Toyotaminis come to mind but there are many others.

    Re: coolant leak near throttle body

    VD - The throttle body is heated with coolant, fed from the hose of death.
    While a leak there isn't one of the more common issues, it can happen and might be worth a look.

    Your van has 2 Oxy sensors
    One up at the manifold, the other just behind the cat.
    In terms of up vs down, the one after the cat is "downstream"
  26. Re: Oxygen sensors - part numbers (all years) and replacement

    And if for some reason you have actually found a real live Bosal exhaust, that is the way to go.

    The fewer the connections, the fewer the leaks and the Bosal unit aligns nicely on the hangers.
  27. Re: Oxygen sensors - part numbers (all years) and replacement

    Pre 88 vans didn't have the rear sensor, Walker makes jigsaw puzzle exhaust, so ordering the correct over axle portion (with or w/o o2) is how they got around one system fitting all years.
