    looking for Best cv joint source or upgrade options

    1999 land cruiser. 2.5" OME lift and slee diff drop. I beat on her quite a bit- i think she likes it :devil: Just spent a lot of time reading some great old write ups. Is there any new sources for well built, maybe even improved Cv joints? Experience appreciated over speculation;) Thanks in...

    Looking at two options, any advice?

    Hey guys, long time lurker and hopefully a future owner! Just looking for any advice here, recently 2 different GX470's popped up near me. One is a 2006 with 117k miles, clean carfax, two owner. The other is a 2008, clean carfax, one owner, at 75k miles. The 2006 has had all the major...

    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...

    CVs - What did I do wrong?

    Alright so I'm being a little emotional because I just rebooted these damn things 6 months ago. Tonight I happened to crawl under there to check something else and noticed both CVs have ripped in the same place on both sides. I have a set of 1.5" OMEs in the front and back. My guess is the lift...

    Diff Drop Kit for OME Light/Stock Springs/Shocks?

    2.5 years ago I installed a OME stock/light suspension kit on the front and a medium kit on the rear. Thinking that the stock/light kit up front wasn't increasing the angle on the CV joints I omitted doing the diff drop as well. 5 months after my build I replaced both front CV axles. 23k miles...

    CV Joint HELP

    I have been diagnosing a seriously annoying pop in my steering wheel for the past couple of weeks. I only feel it when I am going over uneven surfaces slowly. I crawled under the truck today and was trying to wiggle different components to see if they would move and sure enough both of my CVs...

    Anyone with a 98 have this in their tulip? Must be aftermarket? Also, there's no large snap ring. The inboard axle with tulip slid right off.

    In going over my new to me 2000 LC with 222k miles, I found both CV boots blown. One recently as it has fresh grease around it, but the other...has no grease around it, and I do not know how long it has been that way. I have not started disassembly to repair and replace yet, as I am doing...

    Failed Front Diff, CV joint, steering rack?

    Got the LC stuck today, after getting pulled out some strange clunking noises came from the front end. It went away in neutral and we were able to coast down the mountain into cell coverage to call a tow truck. When in gear it's a very violent shudder and clunk when and steering input is...

    CV boot question

    So I took my Lx470 to the Toyota dealership to have the Cv boots changed on on of my axles. I bought the Cv boot kit from another Toyota dealer and then decided to have the dealer near me do the repair. They just called and said the boots don't fit and that I have a after market Cv shaft. Does...

    CV axle question

    My son just called after having his oil changed saying that the "cv axle has a gap," apparently before it sets into the hub. I am clueless when it comes to this stuff but have learned a lot from this forum. Does anyone have suggestions on what causes this or if it is dangerous or needs to be...

    Effects of large tires on front end components in daily driving

    Hi everyone! It's been almost 1 year since I've been away, working a lot, but boy do I miss being back. I am getting ready now to get some larger timer on my LX470. I am aiming for 285/75R18. This way I get the 35 inch high tire, without the added weight of a wide 315. I do very mild off...

    CV Axle and Bearing/Hub replacement.

    Both CV Axles are bad on my 2009 GX 470. I picked up two 43430-60061 assemblies and have blocked out a morning this week to do both sides. My bearings are also bad so on Sunday morning I contacted Andy at bluepitbearings.com to order two of the KOYO bearing and hub assemblies. He told me they...
