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:

Rob's 89 Toyota Rockcrawler from 35's to 42's
These are some random clips of my Toyota pickup from Tuttle Creek (near
Randolph, KS) and down at Disney, OK. Started out with a Toyota straight
axle swap and 35" procomp xterrains... Ended up 1 ton axles (d60/14b) and
42" super swamper IROKs. Had a blast in that rig. Yes the engine was making
a loud clatter but kept chuggin' away. The guy I sold the motor to called
to let me know the cam was wore so much and that's why we could never get
the valves adjusted right. Front springs was a home brew toy rear pack, 63"
chevy rears. Running a 2.28+4.7 doubler with twin stick.
