Installing Wheel Spacers for Toyota 4x4 Solid Front Axle. The pros and cons of using wheel spacers.

How to install wheel spacers on a Toyota 4x4. My thoughts on using wheel spacers, some of the pros and cons of using wheel spacers, and some of the tricks I've learned in dealing with wheel spacers over the years. Generally, I'm a fan of wheel spacers. The biggest thing is just to realize that you've deviated from the factory tolerances and that parts (like wheel bearings) are going to wear faster from strain that falls outside the design parameters. but, if you're running tires big enough to need wheel spacers, you probably know that already. I say it in the video, but I can't say it enough: Check those nuts that hold the spacer on often. Wheeling rigs have a freakish ability to loosen everything attached to them.

Toyota 4x4 brake modification makes broken Birfield access much quicker! Quick release caliper.
Toyota for some reason made the mount for the brake caliper hardline a trapped unit. Because of the way it was designed you have to disconnect the brake line if you want to remove the caliper from the steering knuckle, or if you want to remove the knuckle from the axle. Even under shop conditions I hate bleeding brakes, so imagine how much fun it is if you would have to open the brake lines out on the trail (like when you're fixing a blown Birfield joint.) Spilling brake fluid on the ground out in the woods is not cool either. This mod allows you to remove the caliper while the brake hard line and flexible line are still attached. If you don't have to open the system, you don't have to bleed after you put it back together. This mod alos comes in super handy in the shop. As you can eliminate the brake bleeding step in any job that requires that you remove the caliper (Wheel bearing adjustment, rotor replacement, steering knuckle removal, etc.) If you don't have to bleed the brakes you just saved yourself a bunch of time. If you've had to disconnect the brake hard line at the caliper, his trick also makes getting that tiny brake hard line fitting that mounts under the bracket started into the soft line fitting threads a breeze. This is the first mod that I do to any Solid Front Axle (SFA) Toyota that wanders into my life. It's such an easy mod I'm just dumbfounded that Toyota didn't make the brackets like this from the get-go. Maybe it was a planned move to increase the service time...increased service time = more money in the service department's pocket...

Rebuilding Axle Shafts On Toyota 7.5 Inch Rear End
This is what I went through in rebuilding the axle shafts on my 89 Toyota Pickup's axle shafts. It's a 7.5 inch axle. I had to replace the differential carrier (which I don't cover rebuilding) and decided to do the bearings while I was there, since they had 295K not-so-friendly miles on them. The key to all this was borrowing my Dad's press, wouldn't have been able to do this without it because of the fits. Simple heat and hammering wasn't budging anything.

How to install 1" wheel spacers and new wheels
Installing one 1 inch wheel spacers (H&R) including cutting down the stock wheel studs.. Suggestions: - A torque wrench isn't optimal to take off lugs, it's just the only big enough wrench i had for use. - Putting the open end lugs on the studs to be cut first will help straighten the threads after cutting when you take them off. But still cut to the black line and not to the lug. You can thank youtube for not allowing real copywritten music. Music my Ronald Jenkees
