    Replacing both front hubs and CV shafts this weekend. Been researching and trying to get everything ready but i keep feeling like I'm forgetting things. Only thing I have so far is the CV shafts, the rest ill pick up this week.

    2x CV shafts -http://www.macautoparts.net/CV-Shafts-8224/5143020-2005-2006-Tayota-Tacoma/ProductInfo.aspx

    2x Wheel hubs - http://www.autozone.com/autozone/ca...mWhere=&searchText=wheelhubs&_requestid=82922

    1 3/8 socket for Hub nut - 35mm (thanks db67fm)
    19mm for lower ball joints

    drain and flush the front diff while im at it so -

    3qts 75-90 oil


    a couple of the write ups leading my way -

    http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146572&highlight=replacement

    http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/maintenance/cv_axle/


    I have to be missing something? I thought about replacing the bearings in the diff but i think you have to actually take the diff apart..??.. Any other suggestions? I'll take my time this weekend and make a nice write up afterwards. I really appreciate any and all input! Thanks Guys!!



    and because everybody likes pictures, this is one reason im doing this...

    The axle nut is actually 35 mm. 1 3/8 is very close and will work. I was only able to find a 36 mm and it worked fine too.

    Unless you have a bearing press, you will still have to get the bearing assembly pressed out of & into the hub. I took it to a local shop, it took them about a hour for both.

    the hub nut is 35mm and you can get it at kragen for sure... i had to remove my front diff to install my RCD kit. Plus its a on there pretty damn good... an impact is probably needed.

    This is the part that most parts stores will sell you. They call it the "Wheel Bearing Hub Assembly". Is this the part that you bought?
    [​IMG]
    If you have this part then you still need to press the hub into the bearing.

    This is what the hub looks like without the bearing pressed on.

    So these 2 parts get pressed together.

    And the complete unit looks like this. (Although it should not be rusted)

    a machine shop can do it, or any place that does metal welding. I got mine done for 30 bucks, took an hour, now i gotta do the other side too, but that will be in the future

    When I was changing mine it was a Saturday night at 7 pm. All local shops were closed and I did not want to wait for Monday.

    But, my local Pep Boys is open to 10pm and it took them 1 hour and $50 for both.

    I bought 2 hub assemblies from a 08 4x4 2dr 4 banger with 22k miles for $200 free shipping. The Tacoma these came off looked spotless, just crashed in back side. So I did not even have to press the bearings on/off, these were completely assembled original Toyota parts. Hell, I called my local stealership and They wanted $190 for one hub (With 6 lugs) & $176 for one bearing. I thought of buying a bearing off ebay for $90, but then all the pressing on/off and all that. So, now I have the bearings/hubs on my Tacoma (Driver side at this point) and the old ones sitting here as a spare. No pressing on/off! I know this sounds confuseing, I guess I should have taken photos. Maybe I can show some photos at a later time when I do the passenger side. (when needed.)
