We put a 16 or 18 tooth spline in a .75" OD piece with a .425" pilot hole like that.

Before that we bought a large press and had stepped broaches, probably 12 of them, that would incrementally shave the tooth into the bore. It was a shitty process and the broaches were like $1,500 with a ridiculous lead time, 8 weeks or something.

OK, I'll have to talk to my father in law, he's been a machinist his whole life. But he mostly writes programs for cnc mills. Not sure what he would know about this type of process.

I've done keyways with a similar style tool, so I know what you mean.

Well I picked up a 4.56 diff today. So my next focus is getting the Toyota diff under there.

Is the flange to flange mounting width pretty close to the same as the GV/Kick ones?

Good question

I haven't measured it yet, but I assume it's gotta be really close if guys are fitting the Toyota cv's in place of the stock ones.

So the more I think about it, I'm leaning towards shelving the arb for our 96 4runner (has a factory e locker and 33s already) I even ordered a spartan for $250. Adding the extra air compressor, lines and wiring just doesn't feel like it fits into this build. I liked my spartan in my 4runner when I had the Toyota axles. Especially with 2 low ability, basically acts open.

Pulled the stock diff out, man that thing is light, I pretty much lowered it out with one hand

Side by side they look very close, dimensionally at least.



Rough mock up doesn't look too bad. I was a little worried about the rack and pinion being in the way, and I was right. I'll figure something out. Might have to lop off the mount on the diff cover.

The other issue is that I it's about 1-1.5" off center and can't move over anymore because it's into the oil pan. The one write up I saw, the guy lifted the engine up. Looking at this rig, the motor mount brackets bolt to the frame. My plan is to unbolt them, lift the motor up as high as I can and then weld the brackets to the frame. I may have to notch the crossmember a little also.

Sounds like a lot, but it doesn't seem that bad to me.



I also messed with one of the struts a little bit, I only had to file the holes a tiny bit to get it to bolt up, but the camber was way off. I need to borrow a die grinder to slot the top hole so I can lean the tire in. I wasn't to wait until I get the Toyota cv's in first though because it looks like it could be close.

Also dealing with a bear getting in the garage we normally leave 1 door open about a foot for the mountain cat that came with the house. We'll a few days ago a bear got in, knocked my front 60 off the jack stands, spilled a gallon of nasty burnt gear oil, and ate like 40 lbs of cat food. so I figured I'll just put a bolt in the door so it can't open more than a foot.

He wasn't impressed



Also been burning a ton of brush, leaves and whatnot. This was the solution to keep the damp stuff going while it's been raining. Just kept it at idle and man did it get intense.

So while it's bulkier the Toy diff is definitely narrower.

Does the pinion need to be directly under the oil pan to center up properly?

It's hard to give an exact measurement since the pass side zuk diff has no flange. But yes, it does appear a little narrower. Which would make sense the wms of the Toyota is a hair narrower.

No, not directly, just a little bit more towards the driver side. The zuk diff is smaller and the oil pan is literally form fit to it.

So with the toy diff a little narrower you may not even need hub spacers then to run the toy shafts?

No, the stub is still way longer and needs to seat against the back of the spindle.

Im thinking I won't need the widening mod, which is funny, because that mod started this whole mess but, the suzuki diff would have had the 1/2" thick spacers with the Toyota cv's. So maybe they are basically the same.

Seeing how easy that cv popped makes me glad I'm going to toyota stuff though.

Haven't touched it since we got home from Idaho. Started back to work 6 days a week the next day.

I honestly thought about selling it, but I can't imagine it's worth anything with no front diff, especially since stupid suzuki used slip yokes front and rear, so I can't even limp around in 2wd.

I was actually thinking about trying to get something done today and/or tomorrow on it.

Nice, good to know it fits a 2nd Gen.

Did you move the engine at all?

Were the spacers necessary for factory arms? Or did you do a hegan mod of some kind?

I have the chopped frame mod same as in this thread

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/suzu...ser-build.html

So I've got more room under the engine. Like you see in the pic I've got tubular a arms that move the spindle front and outward to gain room. I┤m also running toyota landcruiser 90/prado axleshafts in the front with toyota pickup cv's. landcruiser shafts are 15mm or 5/8 Inch longer than stock pickup axles, and the spacers. I do this to allow from more downtravel in the front.
So total length of front axles with spacers is 45 mm longer than stock, I plan on replacing them with T100 shafts and cv's when I brake something.

could share pics/ info of spindle machine work if your interested.

I run 38x14.50R15 during winter 37x12.50R15 turing summer.

more pics








suspension with stock zuk axle, Ran it for about a year with stock suzuki front and rear never broke a thing with 37 inch tyers. now i have 4rrunner rear.
