    Anyone know the drain plug size on the front and rear differential of a '97 tacoma that's 2wd? I was looking through my tools an apparently I don't have the right size.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    Diff is 24mm. I know..I just did mine today.

    GL-5 90W is what I used

    Rack is 24mm also I believe.don't quote me..no need for me to put fluid in my rack..it has none in the first place..no power steering ftw.:D
