I recently bought a front disc brake kit with all new bearings from SOR and I don't trust myself to do the work by myself so i am wondering if anybody knows of some not so pricey mechanics they trust to do the work for me..I have already been to two shops..one guy on cross county said he can do it for 85/hr and another guy i normally use said he would do it for 70/hr..any suggestions would be much appreciated..thanks

Met Tristan today and checked out his 40....great right side drive rig....great condition too. One thing I noticed that we need to address is he has lug locks on wheels and no key. I have been told you can get them off with a tight fitting socket and impact wrench but need to make sure.

Would it also be good idea for him to pick up a couple extra wheel studs in case one breaks during removal of front tires or are the toyota ones pretty strong?

If he can swing by a tire shop they can take off the 4 lug locks in a jiffy....Otherwise maybe pick up a lug lock removal socket from the friendly local auto parts store......The socket could certainly work as long as it doesnt split but it'll probably ruin it....I'd think a 12pt would be the socket of choice.....

yeah at tleast you can get good lugs and if a bolt snaps they can replace it on spot and not be stuck in Sumter trying to find one on Saturday night or Sunday.....just in case.

Brock,

What did you say I needed to get for the tent? something about seam tape and 3M adhesive spray? I did find some lugs in case mine would happen to break off so im pretty sure i got everything i need..
