    Talk About Lucky.....

    After driving up Mount Lemmon, and driving down the rugged, bumpy road to my mountain retreat, I put my LC into reverse and heard a horrible grinding noise.... It was my driver's front tire dragging on my bumper, because the front axle shifted forward when I went into reverse.... Why? Because...

    Knuckle Preload Shims - How to they work?

    It would seem that having less shims would increase the preload, and adding more shims would reduce it - is this right?. Do the shims space out the bearing retainers on the steering arm (top) and bearing cap (bottom)? Or am I not clear on how the system works? An explanation would be...

    Aisin Hub Won't Lock....

    My drivers side hub won't lock anymore (It has worked fine since I did a disk brake swap, which included a change to fine-spline birfields, in about 2002). This is a '74 FJ-40. When I lock the Passenger Side, I can turn the passenger wheel, and the driveshaft will spin. When I lock the...

    I need a pair of rear flares for my '74 FJ-40. I was running the Man-A-Fre black Plastic Pop-Riveted version, when I had a passenger side accident. I would certainly be interested in just the Passenger Side one, as well, if someone has the matching Man-A-Fre style. My fenders are cut. The...
