    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    It's been a busy week. Finished a complete knuckle job, rebuilt both front calipers with the OEM rebuild kit, new rotors, new pads, new TREs, new damper, new sway bar bushings, new shocks, and new OEM mud flaps.

    Are we talking about the top nut or bottom mount bolt? There isn't any bolt on top.

    Have you double checked you have the sleeve, washers, and cushions in and installed in the correct order?

    The nuts are designed to "lock" in place. If you look at them they are shaped intentionally to accomplish this. This will cause intermittent resistance and then could feel like it's getting easier. It will start when the top of the nut reaches the top of the threaded piston. Perhaps that's...

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Ever seen zero shims under a trunion cap from the factory? I'm debating whether or not to just put a shim on each end from the cruiser outfitters kit. Doesn't feel right putting 2 shims on one side and zero on the other. But maybe I'm trying to mistakenly out think the Toyota engineers.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Working on the knuckles today. I was surprised to see there weren't any cone washers in the bottom trunion bearing cap. There aren't any provisions for them either. Is this normal for a 77? i had zero shims in the top trunion cap and two in the bottom! The top bearing and race were in...

    Builds First LC, HZJ77 Build

    Great job on your build - really enjoying reading this as I've just started baselining a 92 hzj77. When you replaced the BEBs, did you replace them with standard size Toyota bearings? Could you provide a little detail on the work you did? Did you reuse the hardware? Assuming you rolled the...

    New visors. Why not when they're about $20/each. Old vs. new.
