    You military? If so the base has a good auto shop you can use. If not, find a buddies garage? My garage is taken with my Land Cruiser and her torn apart t-case for now.

    Yep, I just haven’t done it yet personally. So not 100% sure how to do it. Don’t know any taco owners up here as of yet. Would hate to muck it up and be out of a Vic while my other is still being shipped. But it needs to get done.

    Its pretty straight forward. Youll need a big 35mm socket for the axle nut. A set of race drivers are handy to press the new bushing in. Might want to have an extra seal and qt of oil on hand. Loosen the fill plug before starting..

    The puller tool can be finicky, if so kiss the edges with a grinder to remove just that little bit of material.

    As a side note though, you can still drive for quite a while with a noisy needle bearing from what Ive seen.
