    I figured the res. may be the issue; same part numbers for non-res. coilovers between both vehicles.

    Nope the 3 holes on top are clocked something like 15 degrees differently

    so the solid aluminum top hat thing coilovers use has to be 4 runner or tacoma specific because theres only soo much misalignment heims can take

    any other shock you just rotate the top hat the right way before releasing the spring because they can rotate 360 degrees on the shock rod

    5100s are the easiest, just stick a screwdriver in the shock bushing and rotate once assymbled and bolted onto the frame cause the spring perch and shock are seperate so you can turn the shock without the spring and top hat moving

    Always traded mine for the bacon whenever someone got it; never cared for the jalapeño as much.

    @cruiserguy

    Since you had asked; I get everything pristine before getting it together.

    Here's the clutch pawl assembly

    20200709_191246.jpg

    Hub cover dial assembly on bottom left; new o ring and gasket

    20200709_194018.jpg

    Inner hub and spacer installed in hub body; that snap ring is a pain in the ass

    20200709_200441.jpg

    All assembled

    20200709_201108.jpg

    I only put one together seeing as how the detent spring on the other manual hub was broken. Ordered one from Yotamasters

    Beautiful work man! You've inspired me to try and find a used sent and rebuild em myself!

    I still need to find bare spindles to press new bearings and my manual wheel hub thingy

    Disassembling and cleaning guns does the same for me; since I haven't been shooting for some time, manual hubs will have to do :cool:

    Oh they're super easy.

    It's just a bit of a pain getting them all cleaned up, especially if the o ring failed and the grease inside is contaminated.

    Only parts you can media blast are the hub cover and dial which I get done so I can paint them.

    @Abeyancer

    You can use Prerunner spindles as well since they're identical to 4x4 spindles; you'll just use your own axle hub to make it work with the manual cv axles.

    Only difference you'll find is some have the tab for abs whereas others don't.

    I thought using snap rings were impossible till I realized I was using the wrong pliers.

    You’ve got snap ring pliers for snap rings with holes in them, you’re supposed to use Lock Ring Pliers.

    Oh the trucks that pop up here are always 5-lugs. But every now and then a 4WD will appear. Rare though.
