BigGreenMonster I have been beating the piss out of... Well, when I wheeled... Spools front and rear. I run 22r/duels/5.29's and 42's. I do not see the spool breaking anything a regular locker would not. Having said that, I plan to put a Yukon locker up front because it is a bitch to turn. They are tough, but unless you have full hydro it is a bitch

green97tj Ordered a 30 spline today. I thought about ordering one of the used cardan Joints they have just in case I need a xtra one. But I didn’t. Thanks for all the great info in this thread. I will keep it updated with my results of the new shaft

Yes, stock, they're pretty strong really.

Replaced it with a Marlin 30 spline unit.

That's what I'm guessing.

They'll twist up quite a bit before they snap



I only found it because I was doing something and happened to turn the front drive shaft and noticed it wobbling.

hodgiemoto My truck would do this whenever the transfer case mounting bolts would get loose. Only did it going up hill under load bouncing around. It would hit on either the horse collar or the cab, don't quite remember. Check your transfer case mounts. May or may not be the problem, just something to check. good luck.

green97tj I thinking cv joint is toast. I had slack in it, put the grease to it and that took up most of the slack. Went to the trail and no noise for about 5mins. Then started thumping. In 4wd with hubs not locked no noise, hubs lock with transfer in 2wd no noise. Either or both hubs locked in makes noise.

Theres no physical space for a load bolt to ride on an 8". For comparison, you can see the 9.5 ring gear extrudes past the carrier. The 8" is all the way to the edge.

green97tj Got spartan in. Everything new from one end to other except lockouts. Now in 4wd under load I hear “ thump thump thump “ up hill. Down hill no noise, hubs locked in with transfer in 2wd no noise either. Can’t figure it out

this thread is linked from the other thread, it has more and better pictures of the differential, with holes cut in it to see, with gears attached and such

picture thread, still have all the stuff except for the 8" axle

the issue was that a load bolt would have to be set at an angle to catch the side of the gear, there isn't much space between the edges of the carrier ring gear bolts and the edge of the gear itself. different gear sets use different angles.

Load bolt's work and I am surprised more people don't do this mod themselves.

Lincoln locker best bet...

eat.sleep.wheel Dang, I guess part of it depends on the condition of the v6 carrier. I was skeptical of reusing the factory side gears at first too, but a plethora of 3rd gen 4runners in the pull-a-part kept a good supply of $50 complete 3rd members to mix and match parts from. Broke a few axle shafts (rear and 30 spline Longs) with this setup.

Basically every 4cyl lunchbox locker Iíve put in came back with a busted center pin at some point (sometimes after breaking an axle shaft or 2)

YMMV

This right here. I killed a V6 lunchbox in a hi pinion front in short order. The 4 cylinder models are actually stronger than the V6. The side gears don’t break, the teeth get rounded off making it useless. I actually have pictures of mine on here from 2006? I ended up replacing it with the rear Detroit and putting an elocker 3rd in the rear axle.

Even in a high pinion 3rd, swap a v6 carrier with a Spartan.


I've installed and ran every Toyota diff made and that's what I recommend for a front diff.


Bent toyota spools are a real thing. I prefer a welded diff.
