Thanks y'all. Not a whole lot of progress lately. I did install new coilovers and raised the car to an old man kind of height. I want to enjoy driving it when I drive it not have to clench my butt cheeks over every pothole I see.

Don't be ashamed by a normal ride height. Car is awesome!

Haha you're not wrong. Thanks!

Looks like after running it a bit more one or both of the cam seals have failed. I had used a non OEM seal on one side since I damaged an OEM seal during install. I guess that came back to bite me in the ass so I have to address this asap I knew I should have waited and got an actual toyota seal.

I would like to take out the carpet to dye it or replace with black carpet and I would definitely do sound deadening at the same time.

I did dyed the carpet. It was much cleaner being black and flows well with everything. Trust me it?s worth it.

I personally followed this write up and had great results.

https://www.supraforums.com/threads/...-black.674305/

I've owned far too many S-chassis running aftermarket carpets and they all fit bad. No where near as nice as an OEM one.

Hey thanks! I was looking into the rit dye soaking method. I'm hoping maybe there's a product that could be sprayed with a gun to consider too.

Didn?t have luck with rit dye even with many methods. I think bc of cheap style carpet. It?s like made out of plastic vs fabric. So the dye didn?t work for me at all. It got rain on while being dry on the 4th day, 100% of the dye when down my driveway. Yes it over over 75 degree each day. I later went with Dupli-Color Flat Black Vinyl & Fabric Spray Paint. Work out perfect for carpet. It now looks oem.
On the other note, it didn?t like my back seat. It made the fabric hard and feel cheap. I have a roll bar now so it didn?t matter. I?m sure if I went with rit dye for the back seat it would have been better.

I lied. I did not try this method. First time hearing about this. Wish I known it took that long to let it work in. Oh well

If you didn't soak it in a continer did you spray the dye with a bottle or brush it on?

I'm surprised your carpets are worthy of a dye. Mine are trashed and have a huge hole near the pedals so I'm gonna give stockinteriors a shot. A few guys on here have had good results: https://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=654618

Yeah mine are in pretty good shape, just a little fading and staining. No thinning. I bought my car with about 70k miles and immediately put new OEM floormats in it. It only has about 130k now.
