    Yup.

    First class on foreign airlines is taken way more serious than American carriers.

    I don't think a drop kit is going to stop it from failing. You using an aftermarket bearing or the oem/Spicer one?

    The drop kit is supposed to help with vibes but it didn't for me. Putting shims under the leaf springs helped with the driveline vibes

    My autozone bearing has treated the 99 just fine.

    alot still need done
    I got a Napa one first one failed and it came with the drive shaft that was easy. Got a new driveshaft as well. But this time I tried to salvage the one on my original driveshaft and separated the bearing trying to get it off. I'll be ordering a OEM one.

    I do think some of the 2nd gen drivetrain parts are made by Spicer, but the first gen OEM stuff is japan made.

    Comes with a Toyota logo and PN molded into the rubber, and the box says made in Japan. 2nd gen driveshafts are 100% Spicer so I dont expect this to fail any more prematurely than OEM.

    Wow crazy!! Most of Spicer's parts are hot garbage, surprised they dont make it in china or mexico to save a few cents.

    Still buying OEM from Toyota LOL!!
