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.

How to Remove a Birfield Joint (The fast way) aka The Camo Method Toyota 4x4 Solid Axle
This is the fastest way to access a Birfield joint. This method removes the knuckle as an entire assembly from the Toyota soild or live axle (1979-1985 U.S. trucks). Because the knuckle can be removed an an entire unit you don't lose any of your wheel bearing pre-load. This method works great on the trail if you break a birfield and need to replace it. If you're looking for bomb-proof replacement birfields, this is the only place to go: http://www.longfieldsuperaxles.com/products.php?product=27-SPLINE-BIRFIELD Bobby Long's "Longfield Super Axles" The "Camo Method" is named after a moderator on Pirate 4x4. I don't know if he actually came up with it, but we've always called it the "Camo Method".

How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out. Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs. Didn't work at first, but we got there! As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to stretched tires: These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend cruiser. It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second. Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though. On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings, while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on the Nürbrugring). 215s will just stretch slightly on 9", stiffening the sidewall up only a little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast cornering. In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for me.





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...

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem. I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest. Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've put out there, that would be great.
