I personally didn't install my aussies (I was working on my rear suspension while my buddy set up the gears and installed the lockers). But there are a couple of key things to remember. Mark the CBPL adjusters with something more than a black sharpie marker. I could actually scribe a mark. The marker will be removed when you clean up the adjusters with brake cleaner (happened to my buddy)
Second, make a CBPL adjuster tool like Zuk's. Makes getting the CBPL nice and tight.
You will also need a set of feeler gauges and a good, long punch.
I printed out almost every article Zuk wrote on the aussie installs and referred to them on mine and when I helped a buddy install one in his 4Runner.
I've got a 4.10 third sitting in my garage, great condition. If you want to install it into my third and then just give me your old third, you are more than welcome. Just an Idea, so there isn't any preassure to get that locker installed in order to drive your truck.
I know its been asked before, probably many times.... Where is a good place to get small amounts of steel for garage/hobby work? I'm specifically interested in 16g steel sheet, but also basic steel like angle, bar, square, etc. in small quantities (and at decent prices of course...).
Looking for ideas for me to try out.
I posted the same thread, nearly word for word, up on the national board too, but just incase you guys/gals don't go there...
As the Titles says the break light on the dash is starting to come on more frequently during medium to hard breaking.

I need to pull out and replace the rear wheel bearings from my Toyota axle.
Anyone have the SST or a homemade equivalent?
Before I build one, anyone have an old/bent/warped axle housing that I could cut one side off of?
Thought I'd ask here before I built one.
To start with, I'm talking about an 03 Taco, 3.4L, with AT and auto hubs....
Last winter I needed to go into 4wd at an iced over street intersection, and normally you hit the button, the T case thinks about it for a minute, then it engages and you're off. You can do this while...
