yeah not bad i guess since i have a new radiator with it.
Old one leaked when they finished flushing it so I asked nima to just get me a new radiator (KOYO)

Didn't get to change the spark plugs so ill do that around 120k and replace valve cover seals

Just a TIP if your doing yours mark. Order online from carson toyota then just pick it up. Because i was gonna order over the phone but the parts guy said I need to do it online since the discount only applies for online orders which is stupid. But you can still pick up at carson

Also removed my driverside door panel to lubricate the hinge and window motor. Its a bit noisy when going down but it didnt worked out like I wanted on the windows but worked great on the squeaks in the door

Used PYROIL multi purpose Silicone lubricant

Here's the how to for a 90-94 but pretty much the same for a 98-00

When removing the controls you need to pry it in the back rather than the side like the one on the DIY



then unscrew the bolt



Once everything is off just carefuly lift up the panel and make sure the windows are down so you don't scratch the glass

that's not true, it just depends who you talk to. if you talk to Luis you'll get teh discount over the phone without issue. I've been ordering through them for the last 6-8 years.

Luis and maybe one other guy handle all the forum sales as well as the actual online orders.

Nice....gonna have to do this. All my windows are going up slow except my driver side. When it rains it goes up a lot quicker than normal which gives me the assumption that it need to be lubricated now.

So, what did not work out like you wanted? I my drivers side seems like it needs some love as well. She is a little noisy.

Yeah very simple. The rear seat took a bit more time since we don't know where the bolts are at.

5 bolts total for the back seat
3 up top
2 bottom

lol!
Yeah im sick of the height. Its too high for me and one of my front shocks is almost blown i think?
Only bad part about the megans is the rears doesnt go that low unless you play with the preload
my rears are max with good amout of preload fronts can go really low

It made it go up and down a bit faster but not much and the sound it makes didnt go away.
