    Front End Wobbly - Fluid All Over but Can't Find Source

    Back in an 80 for less than a month and already posting up an advice thread... It's a beautiful start of a love hate :) Picked up a 91 with 179k miles in West Phoenix. Mechanic owned. Checked out when I bought it. 1 week later noticed a pretty significant leak in the far front driver side when...

    Has anyone seen a CV boot leaking like this?

    I went to check out a 1999 LX470 this afternoon and it was looking ok until I got to the front end — the passenger side CV boot had all kinds of grease around it, including slung on the inside of the wheel and tire and the rear of the fender. The owner said he just had this boot replaced. Maybe...

    It can be done. Differential seal replace - w/o pulling axles

    This is in relation to my previous post where I had a front diff leak and was worried about water intrusion. Anyway, I eventually determined no water in the differential, but did confirm the leak was the differential to...

    Did something stupid

    Feel free to skip this backstory to get to the nitty gritty. So went for what I was hoping was a routine weekend camping getaway and came back with a leaking front axle/diff. Headed for Great Sand Dunes National Park in CO and all the recent posts regarding the 4x4 trail said the creek crossing...

    FJ40 Rear Knuckle Oil Seal Bracket Bolt Torque

    Hey guys, I've searched the FAQ and every possible related thread, but all I got is "don't over torque or you will bend the bracket". Well, turns out the force is minimal because my brackets are bent around every bolt hole. At no point in tightening did they ever feel tight enough to where they...

    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...

    Front diff locker will not disengage

    I have just replaced the gears in my front diff. I also pulled my rear pumpkin off and checked those gears. I reassembled both front and rear and the rear is fine but the frond diff locker shows as locked while the switch is on the off position. I pulled the truck forward and reversed it as...

    FJ80 n00b tackling front axle rebuild

    Hi Folks, I'm a fairly experienced DIY mechanic getting ready to do a front axle rebuild on a friend's '92 FJ80. Never worked on an FJ or any other solid-axle 4x4. Now, my friend is the sort who does not consider maintaining his vehicle until it needs a repair, so the back plates on both sides...

    What's an '84 solid front axle worth?

    I've been robbing parts from my uncle's Toyota junkyard. Took the power steering off an '84 for my FJ40 and just brought the front axle home so I can do the disc brake swap. A couple people asked me what I want for it when I'm done. I'm just taking the steering knuckles for the disc brakes, but...

    Should I be concerned? (front axle)

    I've been inspecting my recently acquired 04 LC, and tonight I took a closer look at the front axles. The PO had some work done to the right front axle 10k miles/1yr ago which I can provide more specifics on if someone things it may be related. My question is is the gap I noticed here...

    Front Axle Snap

    OK this is really starting to bother me. If I accelerate occasionally (more now than before) there will be a pop from the front left ish. I'm thinking its axle related. It sounds like something is binding then releasing. Then if I brake it will pop again. Last week I had the front drive...
