    In the instructions I have it mentions to transer "the rear dust seal" out of the OE knuckle....what part is it talking about here? I cant seem to figure it out in my head.

    When you pull it apart, there's a seal on the back of the knuckle where the CV goes through.

    Just take that seal out of the back side of the knuckle and carefully reinstall it the sameway into the new procomp knuckle. If you had a 2wd it would have a cap over hole instead of a seal for the cv shaft.

    I don't remember a o-ring but I do remember a metal seal with a rubber face that creates the seal. I installed my lift last year so I don't quite recall all of the steps right off. Fabtach website has pictured instructions that should help. I read both procomp and fabtechs before installing my procomp lift. The pictures on the fabtech instructions are pretty detailed.

    It looks like a large bearing seal... if you have ever seen one of those? Press fit in. Has a thin metal edge you have to work your way around it to pop it out, and to put it back in. Just don't bend it.

    If that makes sense??

    There are two seals one is on the inside of the knuckle, and it is pretty easy to damage when removing, so be careful. I would just purchase a new one, but they are pricey from Toyota. I would figure it would be ok if you got it out with no damage but if you use a new one you know it was good when you placed it, and you wont have to worry about it giving out too soon as it would be new.


    I had to replace a wheel bearing recently and the inside seal was the reason it failed. BUT I contribute that to the Carrier that failed and allowed the CV shaft to wobble alot while driving it to get a new carrier installed. That put too much stress on the seal and caused it to lose seal ability and then the wheel bearing failed.
