    How does our front differential work?

    I’ve got an 09 with a rear ARB air locker and I noticed in a video someone took that both my front tires are spinning while slipping through the mud and raising off the ground. People kept talking about how I have a front locker which I dont and I didn’t understand why they kept asking. I...

    SOLD  Denver - FJ40 Rear Diff, Spartan Locker, Man-A-Fre Dist

    Good day everyone! We are mid-move and I've decided to list a few parts that I'd rather not have packed. All are Denver/Aurora area pick-up. You can come inspect for yourself. These parts were included when I purchased my '76 FJ40. As told, they were either spare parts or parts the previous...

    Pinion bearing R&R

    Hey all. Trying to get the axle spacer out by pulling it through. What is the best way to do that? When the Detroit locker was installed, they had to modify the bearing cap by grinding a small section out for the side bolt. However, because of that, I’m unable to spin the diff so I can push the...

    My 80 was making a loud clunk noise from the driver side wheel during sharper turns and this morning when I went into reverse the same wheel locked up. I parked uphill and went into neutral and when I rolled back, same thing. The wheel would lock up, then you could hear it pop, then roll back...

    Wanted  FJ25 (and early FJ40?) Differential parts

    I'm looking for this little gear that goes behind the carrier bearings. I'm not sure what they're called exactly, but we need two of them for the FJ28 restoration. EDIT: @pardion looked this up in the 1958 manual and they're called a "Nut, differential adjusting. PN RS 41312". Looks like this...

    I am about to attempt to change my Transfer Case and Differential Oils. And I have already purchased 7 Liters bottles of Mobile 1 synthetic 75w 90 GL5 gear oil. My new plugs and crush washers from Wit's End are supposed to be here today. I wanted to know if anyone had a recommendations for...

    Plastic cone fell inside front diff

    I was almost done with my front diff fluid flush when the black plastic tip from the Mobile 1 75-90 quart fell into the front diff fluid hole. Has this happened to anybody on here before? I saw a thread about a tip in the t-case, but didn’t find one on the front diff. Will the tip get chewed up...

    69 FJ40 Rear Carrier Swap

    Hello All, Thank you in advance for any help with this!! I have a 1969 FJ40. I believe it was built in July of 69. I'm doing a full restoration on it. I'm currently rebuilding the front and rear axles. When I pulled the rear axle carrier assy out one of the bearings just fell off. I tried a...

    Eaton LSD Gurus Needed

    I am in the middle of a rear disk brake conversion.... I finished putting the axles back in and was cleaning out the bottom of the diff when I found this! I believe that it is a shim for the small gear that the large pin is inserted through. Is it possible that it fell out while I was pulling...

    Wanted  Atlanta/St. Louis: 2000-2002 Land Cruiser 100 Series Front Differential

    I just blew the front diff in my 01 100 series. Looking for a working carrier with 4.30 gears from an 00-02 100 series. The most convenient locations for me would be Atlanta, St. Louis or Birmingham, but if you are in the southeast or midwest that could also work. I do not check MUD often so it...

I don't drive the my cruiser very much... and recently, with less than 5k miles on the 3rd member, a howling started to emit from the rear end and got worse very rapidly. I jacked it up...

    Differential ratios Fj vs Bj

    Hi, so I now own an ‘84 FJ40 (from Brunei) and an ‘82 BJ42 (from France). The French car is being used as a donor vehicle. I was just wondering what the ratios are on the front axle? I’m hoping they’re the same so I can swap them. Cheers guys

    Wanted  2004 LC Front Diff

    My local shop says the front diff needs replaced. It’s making a pretty loud clunk (horse trotting) sound at slow speeds that eventually gets quiet at higher speeds. Looking for a used front differential. Any suggestions where I can fine one?

    Front Differential Oil Capacity

    FYI - Documenting what I couldn't exactly find a number for. Just changed the front diff oil after 6 1/2 years and 35k miles of mostly low stress road use. Measured the drain out - right at 4 quarts of nice thick dark gray/green iridescent diff soup. I'd say it was about like a melted...
