Hi all. Well we've gone and purchased a 2013 Toyota Highlander V6 base that was a lease buy out from work. It was too good of a deal to pass up. I'll be passing the MPV over to my nephew and his wife and they are totally stoked about it. They currently have a compact and no kids so this will be a lot more room than they are used to. I'll peruse the forums from time to time but if you have questions feel free to PM me and I'll try and help out. See you all in Cyberspace!!!

Giving away our old gal's is like sending them away to college. Don't be a stranger, the new caretakers will still need the tribal knowledge.

I just changed the starter again before I handed it over. No need to undo the drive shaft if you have a couple wobble extensions. The pisser are the bolts holding the power steering bracket on with the pump just being in the way for the lower 2 bolts. I used my trusty homemade pulley holder to pop the nut off. Big you have any specific questions, feel free to post up.

the power steering pump and bracket were a pain.
got it done. took me a couple days and some patience. the biggest problem other than removing everything to get to it was wedging it in place with shop towels while i hand threaded the bolts in.
i'm a couple weeks out from it and guess what just happened...i think the coolant hose ruptured. i have to get back in there and change that more than likely. i'll take a closer look at it when the dripping stops.

For reinstalling the starter I was able to reach in front of the it while under the van and push it towards the flywheel while using the other hand to start the bolt. Something I didn't do the first time. I was totally surprised when I could reach around and didn't need my wife's help this time around. It made it so much easier.

Hi, sorry I'm relatively new. Before you go, how did you achieve your ride height/stance? It sits perfectly level and at a great height. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
