    TomTom Troubles

    I recently purchased my 2008 UrbanRunner edition 4Runner, and it comes with TomTom navigation. And when I activated it, I (like a dummy) didn't back-up the SD card! I was wondering if someone out there could send me a copy of their SD card so I will have the correct applications! I have already contacted TomTom help center and they gave me a link to their website and had me download their applications, But it was only languages and maps. It still didn't fix my problem, A friend asked why I haven't taken it to the dealership yet, And I'll tell ya, I have been a professional mechanic for over 23 years and I can't deal with service writers at dealerships! Most have limited mechanical experience and they act like your the dumb one when you come in with a problem. So, I would rather fix this little problem myself! It was my screw-up so I don't want to hear some 25 year old telling me I should have backed-up the TomTom, I know that! I was excited about having a brand new 4Runner and I wasn't thinking! If someone out there could help me I would really appreciate it, And if someone has a mechanical problem or a maintenance question please feel free to ask me, I like sharing my knowledge and if it helps someone understand their vehicle a little more then I know I have done something good. Thank you all who read this and I look forward to hearing from you!

    94 4Runner rear end sag

    I know what your talking about, I've seen a lot of 4Runners with the same problems, The best way to fix the problem would be to replace the rear springs with OEM parts or there are aftermarket airbag suspension systems that would allow you to set the desired ride height you want but this can be very costly, So replacing the springs would be your best option.
