    A few weeks back I aquired a TRD OR rear axle to put in my SR5.
    Had a chance to install it today. It went real smooth thanx to all.on.blacks write up. Big ups to you:D
    we replaced the axle seals and o-rings while the axle shafts were out. Cheap piece of mind I suppose. I still have to do the electrical part of hooking it up, but for now it's in and seems to be ok.

    But I do have the ABS light on now, wondering if we maybe tripped a sensor while bleeding and it needs to be reset? my friend seems to think that since we had the truck running for the bleeding process and the fluid did get down low it may have thrown an error. not quite sure yet, it was getting dark and had to head home. I did a quick battery disconnect but the only thing that reset was the clock lol.

    Here's a few pics of what I did, instead of going to mod day :cool:
    looked like a lot of people there too
