My GF uses the LC as her daily driver. The front brakes need replaced, and it's had a whine from the front diff since I bought it. There's a guy in Chandler that is a specialist in 80-series gears. I've changed replaced discs & pad on a handful of different vehicles, but when I did a search for a guide on how to do it on an 80-series, I was surprised to find there are more steps than usual. Something about hubs and birfields, and repacking hub bearings. I can follow a guide. Anyway, although it has been a while, IIRC, there is some overlap between the jobs of changing discs and pads, and pulling the front diff. My question is, how many hours (approximately) for each, so I can determine if it's worth it to do it all at once. I am pretty sick of the diff whine, but if it's a 3 hour job to change the front brakes, but 12 hours to pull the front diff, I'm thinking I'll procrastinate on the pinion bearing job, especially since once I pull the front diff, week or 2 before I get it back, etc. On the other hand, if most of the work is getting the wheel and hub off, maybe I should do it all at once. Please throw your two cents in if you've done either or both of these jobs! Thanks!
