    RTH: Terrible brake noises when driving [SOLVED]

    Hello! First time posting here, hoping I can get some help. My front right brake has been making some awful noises while driving, and breaking for that matter, after a fellow landcruiser-enthusiast friend and I replaced both front rotors, brakes, and wheel bearings. He’s replaced his 80s front...

    Need RTH for spongy brake problem before and after rebuild

    History: My brakes are "spongy" for lack of a better word. The pedal depresses almost to the floor and then there is slight resistance for a few inches before the brakes engage. Over these few inches of resistance, the pedal travel is spongy and at no time "firm". I replaced all soft lines...

    Crank bolt tightness: RTH check me

    I'm pretty damn comfortable around tools, but admittedly, this is my first foray into the world of 3/4 drive. Just tightened the crank bolt on the 1FZ to 300+ lbfts. I used the big monster Harbor Freight torque wrench, using a 6pt 30mm socket. Getting the bolt to break free (breaker bar...

    Looking for some real time advice from Cruise Moab. Yesterday I discovered that the end of my ds steering boot had popped off and apparently puked out some fluid. The reservoir is full, there is NO active leaking, and the steering is fine with no odd behaviors. I reset the clamp and the end...

    RTH lower trunnion bearing stud torque spec

    Quick question. I am replacing my lower trunnion bearing studs with new OEM hardware. Plan is to install STUDS with red loctite. Any idea of the torque spec on the STUDS themselves? The original ones were not very tight. Should i just use red loctite and tighten down to a reasonable torque such...
