Well.......I need some advice. Today I replaced front struts. (Old ones were shot), calipers, rotors, pads, and rubber brake hoses to each caliper. Also found a pin hole leak in the drivers side metal brake line, three inches up from the rubber hose connection, there was a bubble in the line's coating and sure enough a leak started as I was bleeding the DS caliper. Just what I needed to find a few weeks before taking my trip to Northern Vermont. Now I'll be worrying about all the other brake lines!!! I installed a new 12" line ( at least it was the shortest line).
Before I started the work, I did my best to flush the brake lines stating at PS rear, then DS rear, then PS,the DS. Old fluid really wasn't so bad. I picked up a vacuum bleeder from HF, although when I used it there always seems to be some streams of bubbles in the bleed hose. Not sure if this is from the vacuum.
After bleeding with all new parts, the brake pedal gets pretty solid, but when I start the engine the pedal goes down about halfway. This is where is has been since I can remember, but I thought after installing all new parts, the pedal would be higher even with engine running. Am I missing something?
I read online that the key may need to be ON while flushing. Also read the engine should be running. And also read engine OFF, Key OFF and just bleed farthest wheel to closet which is what I did and always have done to my Ranger and other vehicles, no key on, no engine running and then I used a bottle and helper in the vehicle.
Am I doing it correctly for the 97 4runner?
Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

I've done some measuring and the back is approximately 1" higher. I don't really like it either, looks like HAGAR is slouching and depressed, instead of standing tall and proud.

I had some help from a guy who installed the front torsion bars and I wasn't there when he put them in. After talking to him, he said the bump stops would only allow the front to go that far. I thought it was the CV boots that were in danger.

I know I've read something on here about trimming the bump stops down so the lift can be fully utilized, IS THAT CORRECT?? I have the old bump stops that I can experiment with (i put new ones on), would this allow me to increase the front lift to even out HAGAR's stance?

Thanks for the information.

Sorry, no. Most of what I have is all emissions stuff. I don't need it here in Kansas and figured someone could use it where it is required.

Been thinking about installing a header but the manifold is basically a header itself (just cast instead of tube). How much performance increase would I get by installing an actual header, didn't figure it would be all that much.

I'm currently looking for a 1 GEN Raider or Montero in a 200 mile radius from Hutchinson KS. Doesn't have to run.

Thought it would be helpful to have a complete spare chassis.

If you happen to need some extra cash and have one setting around that you can part with, PLEASE PM me.

I should replace the O2 anyway. I'm at just under 300k and have the O2 socket, just did my durango last year to get my check engine light off. I bought my O2 sensor on ebay for less than $20 so I couldn't see see the raider being much more

NRC South Report for May 2019

Angeles NF – The USDA Forest Service has completed the Land Management Plan Amendment, Environmental Assessment (EA), and Decision Notice for the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. The Monument Plan provides guidance for the Angeles National Forest to manage the area’s unique ecological, social, and cultural resources for years to come.

The Monument, established in 2014, is part of the Angeles National Forest and encompasses more than 346,000 acres of high-use public land. More than 17 million people live within 90 minutes of the San Gabriel Mountains, which provide area residents roughly 30 percent of their water and 70 percent of their open space.

Federal Legislation - SOAR Act - This legislation will update the permitting system that guides and outfitters need to operate trips on public lands by simplifying processes, increasing flexibility in allowed activities, reducing unnecessary costs of permit administration and much more.
SOAR is written to make changes to the permitting processes and provides greater access to public lands in a way that increases economic benefits and continues environmental protections. SOAR simplifies permitting to allow outfitters across the United States to work with federal agencies, and more importantly, to get the American public outside to enjoy the wonders of nature.

Panamint Valley - The Australia-based firm Battery Mineral Resources Ltd. asked the federal government for permission to drill four exploratory wells to see if the hot, salty brine beneath the Panamint Valley floor which contains economically viable concentrations of lithium. The soft, silvery-white metal is a key component of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and is crucial to the production of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Well I picked up the caliper and bracket so that’s today’s priority, after that who knows. Rear wiper? Strip and polish the rims? Rust mitigation? The possibilities are endless!

So happy to read about new growth and revisions on The Wire. I'm glad that John lets us use this space.

I'm not-too-coyly trying to shuffle the better Mitsubishi folks off the many FB pages and return to the good place.

Start with ECU. Open it, look for leaky capacitors.

I'm guessing you are looking for MB092440. It's available for $2.50 from mitsubishipartswarehouse.com. It looks like it was used on many models, all the way thru 2004. You shouldn't have any trouble finding it.

Thank you.

Guess I'm glad I didn't buy the LandRaider!

Lastly, I just received a 6 month job offer in Oklahoma. I'll be there in a month. Still looking for a Mitsu but at least I'll be closer to Arizona and similar places
