How to break a Lock Right, in your Toyota.
Multi colored Toyota wears teeth off of Lock Right Locker, in the front
axle. The front axle has 4.30 gears, Lock Right locker, Longfield axle
shafts, and Trail Gear drive flanges. All being pushed by a 22RE, 5 speed,
and dual cases. The truck returns to the obstacle with a Detroit Locker.
How to Remove & Replace a Toyota 4x4 Manual Locking Hub
How to remove and replace a Toyota Manual Locking hub. This video shows
how I pull the manual locking hub off a Toyota 4x4 truck. The video shows
my technique for dealing with the cone washers that can be quite stubborn
sometimes. Toyota used the exact same hubs from 1979 - 1985 trucks ( Hilux
) and 4Runners with only minor changes from 1986 - present.
How to remove a Toyota 4x4 Birfield joint off an inner axle shaft
In the U.S. 1979 - 1985 Toyota 4x4 trucks had Birfield joints in the front
axles. (Also Toyota Land Cruisers and Suzkui Samurais had similar setups.)
The stock Toyota Birfield joint allows for great motion and smooth
operation and will last forever in a stock configuration. The durability
is their dowfall though as Toyota hardened the bell of the joint to a point
where it didn't wear out from normal use, but with tires larger than 33"
the shock loads of four-wheeling tend to shatter the bell of the Stock
Birfield. The best modification for a Toyota front end is to install a set
of after-market Birfields, the best of which are made by Longfield
Superaxles ( www.longfieldsuperaxles.com ) They are expensive, but once
you put them in you can wheel your junk without having to worry about the
Birfs ever again. Before you can install new Birfields, or Longfields
though, you need to get the old stock Birfield off the inner axle shaft.
The inner shaft has a circlip style snap ring that keeps the inner axle
shaft from walking out of the Birfield joint. This video shows how you get
the Birfield off the inner axle shaft in spite of that inner snap ring.
(The snap ring that is on the end of the inner axle shaft up inside the
Birfield is Toyota Part # 90520-27091. You can get them from any toyota
dealer for around $2 each.

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:
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
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
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
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...

I was having trouble because I didn't have the rear locker wired up. Of
course it doesn't help having wet tires. Unfortunately my baby had to be
