    Always had a good experience at Supa Quick greenstone in my 01 Prado.

    Had some issues at other alignment shops in the past.

    Re: Land Cruiser 4.2 1HZ Double cab speed uphill?

    Don't think an EGT gauge is necessary if it's not a turbo diesel.

    Would recommend taking the vehicle past Roadac Diesel in Honeydew. They only do diesel injectors and pumps and very well priced.

    Re: KZTE Torque bolts

    When I had my head reconditioned I had to take the vehicle back to torque the head bolts after 1000km.

    There's a 1kzte owners group on fb that could probably shed some light on the rest

    Re: Wheel Alignment Issues?

    Go to a new alignment shop.

    Your right camber is far out.
    Left camber just out.

    Get it done soon and properly before you end up buying a new set of tyres.

    I'd find a suspension specialist shop and go there to have a look.

    It can be anything to do with your suspension.
    Control arm bushes, ball joints, tie rod ends, rack ends, rack mount etc.

    Try change the plug before you change the actual sensor.
