    Speaking of which that's one tool I've used from HF I would not recommend...their snap ring plier set blows. Used it to replace the bearings in my coilovers and the pliers come apart way too easily when you put any pressure on them to compress the ring

    Not going to lie. Drove a 2zr swapped Yaris at a autocross event.

    There are a lot of odds and ends you’ll need for this swap like manual hub gaskets, the brass safety bolt that goes on the end of the CV, little C clips for the axle on the diff side, axle oil seals, etc.

    Call me crazy but I think I’m going to see what it’ll cost to have shorter shafts made for tundra axles... they’re way better at steep angles... hmm

    Call me crazy but I gave up entirely with trying to beat on CVS and little arms that attach to a thin frame. I won't miss the CVs, I might miss the IFS but even 100% stock suspension on my old cruiser rides very nice. Can't imagine what the King shocks will be like with dobinsons multi rate springs.

    im thinking about it for the possible AWD transfer case swap. the tundra axles are CV on both ends. not the tulip on the inside side.

    @Kwikvette

    Here’s my master spreadsheet of new OEM parts I had to buy. Some might not apply to you.

    The transfer case snap ring is important. It bends easily.

    That's an odd design difference, the tulips aren't as dimensionally consistent as a CV so they wobble less but they're a lot stronger. Maybe the tundra had vibe issues with long heavy axles.

    possible. but the angle they can run at is pretty impressive. i have one aftermarket in the tundra because i couldnt find a reman for it locally. you can feel the bind in it compared to the other

    That's typically a complaint of the aftermarket taco axles too, the CV side binds earlier than an OEM one

    This is the saddest thing I watched during the last wildfire. It’s the mailman delivering mail to houses that are piles of rubble.
