    Should I repair or replace CV axel?

    Parts are 800-850 for CVs and $50 for the sway bar end links roughly. Labor is probably 3 hours on a lift, more if you have rust. Where are you located?

    Help with diagnosing steering pull

    That sounds like a pretty "Toyota dealership" move. They get zero dollars from you for fixing their work.

    Poncha had major slides on it just after I went over on Friday. Cleared now. Big operation.

    Help with diagnosing steering pull

    I'm not sure, mine doesn't move an eighth of an inch, if that...and I have 33s at 33psi on rough concrete - so a lot of load on the rack when static turning. I have the white line bushings.

    I get more feedback from the road than before but a lot better steering.

    My rack doesn't move at all where it bolts through the bushings to the cross member.

    Should I repair or replace CV axel?

    CVJ makes a good axle for being a rebuild but rebuilding your own or getting OEM are great options.

    Should I repair or replace CV axel?

    It's common to replace a bad CV on cars because when they go they go. Land cruisers are an exception in that you can often replace parts and/or rebuild a wear component. The tech isn't wrong in suggesting it, but in this case it isn't your best option.

    Wheel bearing or front diff?

    Spindle Bearings were brought up in another recent thread as a potential source for a humm like this.

    Lucky Man

    Lucky it was the rear, too. The rotors aren't captive like the front. That being said I would consider going over all of the lugs to make sure there aren't a bunch stripped or twisted.

    Best Non OEM Power Steering Pump

    You've checked fluid level, and if full, tried a fluid flush and bleed? Also check the pickup screen to make sure it's clean and the pump is getting good flow?

    Squeaks on the front end

    Up and down noises, coupled with side to side noise while turning is ball joint symptoms. If aftermarket, grease them. If OEM, inspect them and replace if needed.
