lx450landcruiser said:ok so how about if i take my stock 71 3rd member out i think its called a 3rd member? basically the pumkin out and put in in the 79 axle would that work? or is this way more work then i think? Like i said this is new stuff to me so any help is appreciated.
Texx said:No. Won't work. You have coarse spline. 79 is fine spline. Nothing will fit. I've been here 7 years, nothing works here...(sorry, got off track,) If you want to street drive, find a matching 79 rear axle and install em both. This is a major deal, by the time you set up the ring and pinions, swap this one to that one, make the birfields work, etc. more trouble than its worth! Can you do this work yourself? Do you know someone knowledgeable who can help? If not, this is a disaster waiting to happen.
