REmoved the axles from my FJ40, sent the frame to be blasted. Since I am putting disks on I removed the diff cover plate, took out the shaft and spacer and the spider (?) gears. Was able to bump the axles in to get the "C" clips out. This allowed me to remove the axles to take off the brake backing plates. Now the question: since I have most of the rear apart, how hard is it to replace the seals and bearings in the axles (not a live axle) and how hard is it to replace the bearings for the pinion gear and diff? Will I have bitten off more than I can chew? How do I get the pinion gear bearings out, new ones in? Brake question, anyone know the size of the bolts that you use to put he brackets on that hold the caliphers on? Finally the free stuff, I don't know why anyone would want it but I have two brake drums, two brake backing plates for the rear axle and a grab bar for the dash board ( I think SOR sells them). If anyone can use any of these items they are free for the shipping. Straylight.
