Hey, I've got to remove the driver's side rear control arm/link on my coil sprung rear axle on my 4runner because it's bent. Do I need to immobilize the axle somehow when I remove it so the axle doesn't shift? Second, can I just hammer it straight or will that weaken the link too much?

Thanks,
Milan

The 4Runners are known for twisting and/or breaking the rear suspension when you try to get lots of travel out of it. Converting to leafs in the rear is pretty easy, there's info all over the place about it, including the link Camo gave you.

I know they're crappy, that why I'm buying an early 80's toyota. But until then I have it this is my daily driver and I need to get the rear control arm fixed. So could someone tell me whether it's ok to remove it without jacking the rear? and can I hammer it straight?

It won't let me, besides, why? I bent it wheeling obviously pretty hard, when other people mess up their trucks they can ask about maintenance (tech), right? It's a Toy, it's tech? <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0"> I mean wtf this forum isn't just for solid axled and sas trucks, there's plenty of people who wheel their ifs hard. Geeze get over it. I'm not saying this to you Vermont Toy I'm just pissed that b/c I drive IFS I'm a pavement pounder, that's as ignorant as other wheelers who drive Heeps putting down Toyotas because they're Toys.
