Make BOMBPROOF Toyota 4x4 steering stops for the soild front axle! SFA DIY How To
How to reinforce the stock steering stops on a Toyota Solid Front Axle
(SFA) so that you never have to worry about them again. This is a super
cheap and effective trick that permanently solves a problem. If your
steering stops fail or collapse due to large tires and/or four-wheeling it
can lead to EXTREMELY expensive damage to your steering compents. This is
an easy way (if you can weld) to make sure the steering stops NEVER fail.
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:

if he actually came up with it, but we've always called it the "Camo
1994 Ford Bronco - IFS Dana 44 & TTB front-end removal
I decided to finally rebuild the IFS/TTB on my 1994 Ford Bronco XLT.
This is the video (first-take, completely raw and unedited from my
10-year-old Mini-DV Sony Handycam) that I shot to fill in the blanks that I
didn't cover with still-shots in my full documentation thread here:
At 6:00, you'll see that I was surprised when the spring didn't drop. I
forgot to disconnect the upper retainer! Duh! Hey, I've never done this
before, so I'm hoping people can learn from my mistakes.
It was a pain to simply remove the IFS/TTB front end, so it may be easier
to do a solid-axle-swap rather than re-installing all of the IFS stuff, but
I already spent the money on the parts, so I'm going for it. Besides, the
IFS D44 produces an amazingly smooth, soft ride at high off-road speeds.
When I'm done (documented in a future video), it will have new bearings,
U-joints, a Detroit Truetrac helical gear limited-slip differential, and
4.09 gears to replace the factory 3.55 gears. I bought the whole package
of parts at http://broncograveyard.com.
Here's a link to check out the Truetrac. I hope it's as good as many
people have said...
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.

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.
