    RCV 30 spline Birfield on a Longfield 30 spline inner axle, will it fit?

    I am looking to install some longfield/rcv birfs in my 40 series but I have a problem that I have a BJ70 series front housing with a cable locker. I can get a Longfield super set and a longfield inner axle with a long spline. I can get a RCV ultimate set but don't know if there is any long...

    Solid axle advice

    Hey Y’all, I’m new to this forum as well as solid axles. I’ve never worked on a solid axle, but I’m also tired of dealing with IFS issues. I am currently looking at a 01 Tacoma that has been SAS already. It’s a Trail Gear housing, with birfield axles. He also has 5.29 Yukon gears in it, while...

    Axle/Birf/Flange Question for 1992 FJ80

    Hey all, I'm in the thick of a front axle job and wondered if you could help. I have a 1992 FJ80. I was working on the passenger side with my buddy yesterday, and he got a little rough trying to seat the new birf in the old axle shaft. Now the end of the axle shaft is gouged and won't even go...

    Would someone be able to verify that this is a inner axle seal that has given out?!

    My driverside birfield seems to be leaking a mix of grease and diff oil. It would be awesome if someone could verify my theory? What is the best rebuild kit to buy?

    Spacers for body of Aisin part-time hub when using later (longer) CV's aka Birfields

    Dunno if anyone's done this, but when you fit later CV's (the longer ones) [what you guys call 'Birfields'] on a part-time 4wd 80 with Aisin hubs the shafts of the CV's take up all the space inside the back of the hub (once new snap-ring grooves have been cut to correct the CV position) and I've...

    1992 FJ80 Birfield and Axle Questions

    Hi guys, long story short, I had a major failure of my brake hardlines this past weekend driving to a camping trip. Lots of smoke from the caliper area. After we towed the truck home we started tearing apart the knuckles to change the seals and overhaul everything, (I had noticed my seals were...

    Longfield front axle shaft / birfield won't come out

    I have the driver front on a '78 FJ40 front axle tore down to the inner knuckle. I am unable to get the Longfield axle out. I've lined up the flat spots and everything but the trunion races have been removed, but it won't come out. It looks and feels as it's getting stuck in the inner knuckle...

    Knuckle rebuild + upgrade questions

    Planning a knuckle rebuild on my 60 and am considering upgrading the birfield joints and possibly axles during the rebuild since I’ll already be in there. Unfortunately I’ll have to make this decision in advance as I’ll have to complete the rebuild in a maximum of four days. I’ve been toying...

    Drive an FJ60 without front axle?

    Hey all, I'm in the process of rebuilding the knuckles on my '85 FJ60. I've got everything apart right now, but while separating the birfield joint from the axle, the snap ring that keeps them together, well...snapped. I apparently didn't do enough research to know this was common so I...

    Front Axle Rebuild

    Noticed some sludge coming from the wheel nuts a few days ago. Thinking I have a bad inner axle seal. Here's the writeup from a local shop: "Your front diff fluid is contaminated with knuckle grease due to the bad inner axle seals and has turned into a nasty mud. It is going to require...
