I searched the archives, but didn't find much on rebuilding the front end. I actually need to pull it apart to install my ARB and new gears, but am new to the live axle arena (former IFS bastard child <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> ) and am looking for any help I can get on this. TIA

That is one of the best write ups I have seen, One thing real nice about it is it shows how to take a Birfield all the way apart to clean and check it for small cracks!!

Yeah, it seems pretty good, but I still don't know how many pounds of pull I'm supposed to see on the scale. If you don't know what shim combo you need, how do you figure it out?

I think it is like 8-12lbs. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">
Look in a Toyota manual (Chilton's ext.) <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Right from the Toyota Service Manual, 6.6 to 13.2 lbs. Shims are trail and error. If you are running big tires go towards the high side of the pre-load.

Thanks Oops. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Guess I need to add another manual to my SAS cost. My 89-95 Chilton doesn't say a dern thing about those knuckles! <IMG SRC="smilies/bender.gif" border="0"> Oh well nothing like buying a CD you only like one song from, or a manual you only want the front axle info from.
Wait! <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0"> who wants to hooka-brotha-up and scan their manual pages and send them to me? <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

yup, it's a Costco pack alright! I'm hoping 40 terrycloth towels will do me... if not, it's back to Costco <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Best write-up I've seen so far. Especially nice since I printed it on a HP color laserjet here at the office! ...and put it in my binder. Nice pics! Thanks for the links!
