    i have a 1999 ext cab SR5 with a 3" fabtech suspension lift. i was on the freeway the other day and my front drivers side axle came out of the inner joint. the wheel came loose and i came grinding to a stop on the side of the road. it could have been way bad so i'm glad no one was hurt and no other cars were involved. but now i need to replace the axle because the inner end that came out got ground down. has anyone done this before? what will i need, where is the best place to get parts, and what tips can you give me? i would appreciate any help. thanks

    My first recommendation is to go invest $20 in a good service/repair manual for your model. Haynes makes a decent one for my model and it was pretty cheap and has plenty of useful info and pictures for that kind of stuff.
