    For someone who does not know how to set up gears, is it reasonable to think I would be able to install my own aussie locker?

    Be aware that this writeup may or may not apply to you, depending on whether or not you have to remove the ring gear to get the pinion shaft out.

    For a '76 FJ40 rear diff you don't even have to pull the 3rd member, so the writeup is overly complex.

    For an '86 4runner rear the writeup is appropriate and you need to know about backlash and preload and have the tools to adjust them.
