Starting to rebuild the knuckles on my 78 FJ40. I’m in Utah so I’ll be purchasing the rebuild kit from @cruiseroutfit. Had the diffs sandblasted to remove most of the old grease and gunk. I’ll use Por15 on all the components. Is there a secret to pulling out the axel? It seems to rotate...
A while back I had a ds birfield failure out on an adventure that ended with me limping the vehicle home.
I was in a position where having a local mechanic rebuild the corner for me was my only recourse, so I purchased a new birf, seals, etc and had a 'fixed' vehicle back in my...
I want to apologize first if this question has specifically been answered on this forum in the past, but I haven't been able to find this exact answer. I have a 1974 FJ40 and looking to upgrade to front disc brakes. Can disc brakes from a 1978 FJ40 be bolted on my 1974, from the knuckles 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...
I previously updated the upper knuckle studs on my '78 FJ40 axle to Magnum ARP HD Knuckle Stud (140171-1-KIT); which are M12. I also added a 5th larger bolt. Sadly I managed to strip the knuckle from most of these and now need another repair. I'm running high steer arms.
Does anyone know...
From a novice, beginner, hope to be somewhat competent mechanic someday.
I was looking over my newly acquired 1968 fj40 to determine what are the "have to do's" before I get to the "what I would like to do's" and noticed this piece of rubber on front passanger side wheel knuckle.

I recently bought an FZJ80 from the original owner with complete service history going back to 2004. Truck currently has 125k on it and has been a city car/babied all its life. Last knuckle rebuild was only 20,000 miles ago. Although, that was 8 years ago.
I plan to take a trip from Florida...
Are there a year range that the mini-truck knuckle balls, spindles & hubs are the same as FJ60/62?
Where I live FJ60/62 are few & far between, but there are lots of mini-truck of all years around.
If they are the same in a certain year range it will make getting some a lot easier.
Bout to place the order. Need to determine if I want to go 66.5 (easy for mud flap retention) or 69 (full coverage). Looking for pics of a lifted 80 with either. Specifically, if anyone has the 69" with notched mudflaps that would be much appreciated. TIA...:beer:
I have a couple of stripped holes on my right knuckle. I was going to bump the stud up a size, but the more I think about, I'd rather find another knuckle. Anyone know where I can source a used one??
Thx in advance.
using the sst tool I end up with a negative number for my bottom shim --
pulling 10 pounds of preload to adjust for what will be probably 33's
I get a total 2.20 mm of shim thickness for my total shim thickness, a difference of 2.20mm between my scribed lines (measurement D). My bottom shim...
