Finally... Finally, FINALLY hard wired my GPS and radar detector.

I tucked wiring away. GPS wires up in the headliner and down the A column. Radar detector down between the windshield and the dash.



I used a two plug splitter from autozone that I got for $5.99. Used wire from previous projects.




Tucked the Garmin plug up in this little alcove

And I tucked the radar detector into the main harness


Holy crap. I don't remember what half of these wires are for...


And I have yet to relocate my center diff lock to the center console, and because of my OTRATTW switches in the dash, It won't fit back in (you have to trim the switch holes in the kick panel to fit the OTRATTW switches). Fuse panel locker switch ftw

So I finally got around to installing the ECGS bushing - sh!t that was painful, and I'm not done.

The first issue was removing the CV shaft from the differential. I spent at least 2 hours trying to pry the damn thing out. I even messaged John for advice and it still didn't work. Finally grabbed a second pair of hands and applied constant pressure while banging on the damn thing to get it out!

So, the c-clip on the shaft now has grooves in it where it made contact with the teeth. Anyone know if it's okay to use it, the shaft looks great.


So now I go to remove the needle bearing. This process wasn't too bad and I ended up making my own tool (ghetto)...it didn't want to come out at first. I'm starting to wonder if the tolerances are off....


Next up - the install....remember how I thought the tolerances were all off.....well, I got the bushing in...well, some of the way. I'm still working on it. It does not want to go easy. Why is the hammer my best friend with this project. It better work.


Can someone confirm that I want it flush with the inner most surface?

That sounds like sound advice - would have been helpful before I started. My only concern would be freezing makes metal brittle....

Any advice on the scored c-clip, Mike?

Also flush with the inner surface, correct?

Yours looks as close to flush as I got mine. It might be able to go in a little more. The inside of the inner most surface is what I aimed for flush. Remember the inner surface that the bushing slips into tapers to a smaller dimension at the start of the grooves for the splines. You have to reach in and feel for inner flush (but not touching I believe?!?! I say this because the inner surface I believe is a moving surface inside the clamshell). I never got the outer surfaces completely flush. I believe it is because the bushing is meant to be deeper to provide more support for the cv shaft. The tolerances were very minimal on mine as well. I beat the bushing into place over 4 hours in 40 degree weather with the bushing installer I purchased with from ecgs. (Same kit can be found at harbor freight.)
It took me a total of 5-6 hours last February start to finish.

I have no idea if freezing would work or not, I just know it's a common thing to do when pressing ball joints just to help with the overly tight tolerances. Just throwing it out there to see if either of you guys had considered it. I've never attempted the bushing replacement so I'm learning from you and Billy. Sorry, no advice on the rest of the replacement, I'm hoping to get some helpful tips from you guys

Speaking of bushings on a 2010 Tacoma, let me tell you it needed a new LCA by the time i was finished. from all the heat i warped the LCA beating on it, prying and more levels of oxygen and ace. What a bitch. Mine sucked and are bad again

I was gonna do mine tomorrow but it was so nice out I did it today. Thank you John for the tool loan, it worked pissa. I put the new one in with my bearing race tool and it went in nice and easy. I checked the vibration thread and ecgs said to put it flush with carrier same as the bearing. Rob thank you for the axel I needed it, my axel nut came halfway off and then I had to cut it off. The worst part was the oil that leaked out. I had only jacked up the drivers side thinking that would help with the oil leaking out. I was wrong it still leaked and it was harder to catch cause it ran off the skid plate. It is road test time
