Be careful, you don't want to hook a coolant hose to an intake port. But when you put the plenum back on it will probably become obvious where that hose goes.

Moog at one time made some really good stuff but that hasn't been the case in 10+ years, at least most of the parts I've seen. There are exceptions I've seen some Moog ball joints that were nice, at...

This is not doable unless you have a donor car, a full shop, fabrication skills and a lot of time on your hands. Forget about it.

Fundamentally the job is the same, remove plenum/stays/brackets/wiring etc. to get the covers off. You don't have to remove the EGR tube completely on the 3VZ just unbolt it from the plenum. You...

I would say it's several hours of extra work. You will need a camshaft holding tool to remove the cam bolts. You will also need a torque wrench that goes down to about 10lb/ft for the cam bearing...

Complete control arms from the dealer are very expensive over $300/side, and that doesn't even come with the ball joint. So retail the parts will be over $700 easy, toss in a few hours labour plus...

The coils for the rear are tapered so the individual coil size varies, I guess this could be said to be a variable rate spring. But if you need new coils either buy new from Toyota or source from a...

It's been awhile since I worked on a 3VZ so maybe I'm wrong but don't think I am. You can loosen the other bolts it won't hurt but I just don't remember doing that.

Unless your springs are very rusted or broken just reuse them. Aftermarket springs like Moog are generally junk.
