So what you are saying is that he should do a SAS because it will save him time and money CV boots? that is probobly the most retarted thing i have ever heard. When you say ADD, which A.D.D. are you talking about...?jon_7248 said:Well, not sure when ADD was set in place. I do know that the manual hubs are nicer since there is less wear on the CVs. This is because that the autos have the CVs always engaged and the actually part that engages and disengages to make it 4x4 is either in the diff or the driveshaft itself. Cant remember which at this point. Some will correct me.
When people put lifts on the tacos, they like to goto Man hubs since it's less wear on the CVs. But it also cost $$$$. But to save time and money, I advise a SAS!!! But thats another story.
The full fledged switch out was in 2001-Pinion said:I see some with and some without manual hubs. When was the switch over?
I prefer manual ones over auto, has there been past issues with this?
(Obviously Im new to Tacos.) :newbie:
Alright, sarcasim I guess isnt in your vocab. I will have to remember that. The hubs are not a problem in themselves, just you get less wear when you have the manual hub style because the CVs are not always enganged (like they are when you have ADD style).BLOWNYOTa said:So what you are saying is that he should do a SAS because it will save him time and money CV boots? that is probobly the most retarted thing i have ever heard.

I have never had and problems with my auto engaging hubs, and as a matter of fact i prefer them over manual hubs. A.) I don't have to get out of the truck to engage them. B.) If the weather turns nasty or i do something stupid, i can engage the 4wd anywhere from 0mph to 60mph. I believe that the major change from manual to auto was in 1996. You could get autohubs as an option on earlier Tacomas.
Yes you have ADD...These trucks do not actually have "Auto hubs" they have an "automatic disconnecting differential" (ADD) which is quite different..Nissan, among others, uses an "auto hub" which seems fairly prone to breakage..Just FYI..Impulse2k1 said:I have a question for you guys, I have a 2001 Tacoma Dub. Cab V 6 4x4, and TRD off road package. Do I have auto hubs up front?
