    Those dang knuckle threads

    So I plan on doing the dreaded front knuckle rebuild and while I am doing that I am going to be replacing the steering knuckle studs and brake pads. Any other quick maintenance I should do while I have things torn apart in the front end?

    For Sale  Central Coast California 1971 FJ40 $5125 OBO

    So, these are my pouting words from a defeated man. I just now decided after breaking my new windshield during the install, that working on this FJ40 isn’t bringing me the pleasure it once did. Despite all the work and money, it still looks like a beater and I am just to tired to see beyond that...

    100 series brake job

    I plan on replacing my front brake pads this weekend. In the process I also plan on resurfacing the rotors. Might as well give the hub some attention as well. If the parts aren't destroyed, would I need to replace the bearing seals, bearings, gaskets, etc in the hub or can I just repack? As...

    Ok I need some help on a FJ40 I’m getting

    What are these bolts for? The one on the left is leaking oil. Seems like a bad washer / gasket but I don’t know. Secondly, before I took the fj40 on a test drive I noticed slimy yellow buildup in oil cap along with water drops on it. Is this normal or a cracked head gasket? The oil pan was...

    ABS Delete Experience?

    Hey all, I'm overhauling the brakes on my 80 and there's a ton of threads about mushy brakes that are difficult to bleed.

    Preventative Maintenance to prevent brake failure

    Just had a friend lose his brakes on his 06 100 (approx 185k miles) pulling out of our office parking deck. Luckily he had another floor to go before exiting so he rolled to a safe stop.

    Brake Under Boosted - 98 LX470

    Issue: My brakes (were done at Lexus dealership before I got the car) don't seem to bite hard when I press the pedal. The pedal is not low and the brake action is pretty linear but to get any significant response I have to dig in more. Interestingly, if I take my foot off and then press back...
