Ye I was just asking because I saw a ton of conflicting info. Some were saying SF was stronger, some saying FF was stronger. Do you know if 40s came from the factory with FF rears? It looks like my rears are full floats. Not sure what axle it isThe internet is your friend.
In depth explanation of the difference between semi floating and full floating axles. Light duty semi float axles carry the weight of the vehicle in the axle shaft itself, while a heavy duty full float axle carries the load in large bearings at either end.www.dieselhub.com
Mine is from CR, and the PO did a few restoration mods. My cruiser was also somewhat well specced because it had a radio and hazards. I don’t have the truck rn, but I should have it soon, and I’ll update the thread then. Do you know if Central American cruisers got FF rears?Remove the cap on the rear and take a picture. Fronts are all free floating.
US never got a rear FF in a 40 series. Australia they were standard from 75 on. Which market do you think Toyota figured needed a tougher rear axle and use that to decide which is stronger.

I’ll ask the PO see if he knows.....I probably won’t get it back for another few days. I have a guy installing my engine, it’s almost done but he decided to not tell me that I had a broken engine mount until he started working on it. Only reason I’m not doing it is because I don’t have an engine hoist, or the time to do itGenerally not in Central America. Quickest way to tell is pop the center cover off. Semi floating are flush with the rim. Full floaters sticks out. Not sure if the axle in the lower left can tell it's a FF.

Sorry rob, I’ll try to keep it downPura Vida,
As others have said, please take the time to search for your answers before posting up new questions. From your post you are young and in High School. You should know how to surf the internet and find things. I will try to be polite. You are filling up our forum with Yo Yo talk, language, I hope you do not speak like that. Your squat thread is just dumb, go to the bro dozer sites and ask your silly questions. This site is for tech on FJ4X series. If you want to post up your slang ramblings please take them over to "chat". I had hoped your avitar was just that but it seams it could either be the real you or your internet version of yourself.
A quick search pulled up this. Full floater vs semi floater - https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/full-floater-vs-semi-floater.164999/
There are many up there but this pulled up first. Most will be mud postings as this site has a lot of great info on it, it would be a shame to fill it up with ramblings like this one and most of your other post. Most of your questions could be found with a simple search. Look at the Faqs section at the top of this forum and it will answer a lot of your questions. A Stock wheels for FJ40 search, would answer all the questions you need for your wheels. Do a little work on your own before posting up here. People on this forum are happy to help out but it seems to me you want us to do all the work for you. It was cute at the start like a puppy, now that you have been on here for 11 months it is getting old.
Please take this as positive, if we were on the old PBB, you would have already been banned.
