    That is quite generous of you to offer, should the right project arise I may just take you up on that someday. Fortunately, I do have a single car garage and tools needed for most projects, it is the time and motivation that is becoming scarcer and scarcer, even more so with a little one on the way, hence the need to have a good shop in my back pocket for the need be times.

    I installed some 5100s with OME 886 coils this weekend and after getting it back on the ground and doing a test run the CV shaft needle bearing issue has poked its head out. something small and stupid I just don't have those specialty tools to pull it and redo the seal while in there, and more importantly no free weekends for some time. Figured by the time I buy everything to do it properly I'm only saving 50 bucks if I do it myself.

    Yeah I hear you. I also have a little one on the way as well. I just love doing work for people cheaper than a shop would charge and then they can buy better parts lol it's a win-win

    Check out my build thread (Beginning of Money Pit)
    Hey man, welcome.

    As far as shops that I use, they are a bit outside NOVA. For anything really, frame repair, gears (I had mine done here) , I'd recommend Offroad Innovations in Winchester. They run a 2 week lead time as of yesterday.

    (Full disclosure, I personally know alot of the employees there)

    If I was to find the time to do this myself, any have or know of someone who has the bearing puller from ecgs or something similar that will work? as well as the installer tool? happy to toss some bucks towards a rental fee as well.

    The removal tool, I would only use the one they offer, whether you buy it new or borrow someones. It's perfectly machined and works well, I've done this job about 10 times. As far as the install tool, you can rent that from any auto parts store. The smallest size from the "bearing race and seal driver set" fits it perfectly. If you plan on installing a new seal, a 2" PVC coupler is the perfect size to drive it in. That said, these CV seals are REALLY finicky. If yours isn't leaking, I wouldn't touch it.

    Appreciate it, thats good insight. Assumed do the seal while I'm right there but I like to subscribe to the, if it aint broke dont fix it as much as I can as well. Any other pro tips on the job since you have 10 of them under your belt?

    Put the bushing in the freezer before you start the job. It'll shrink just enough to make driving it in easier.

    If you don't plan on changing the diff oil, only jack up the driver's side and get it really high. That way when you remove the CV axle, you won't lose any fluid.

    Put a plastic baggy in the diff before you try and remove the needle bearing. That way you don't drop anything in the diff.

    Inspect the needle bearing once it's removed. Usually, a small piece of metal will break off of it and I fish it out with a magnet.

    I use half of my floor jack handle over the handle of the bearing driver so I can get a proper swing on it with a 3 lb hammer.

    If you don't get the bushing driven all the way flush, that's ok. As long as it's not poking more than ~1/8" out and you can still get the CV seated.

    I would save judgment on that until after you meet him.

    Just kidding...

    @ilubtimmyhos feel like helping me throw some UCAs on my big american truck in the next couple of weeks?

    That'd be quite the upgrade from his current daily.

    Hello NoVa Tacoheads... Looking to get the frame inspection done on my '14 DCSB. Any recommendations on dealerships to use or avoid. Located in Luray and don't want to go to the dealership in H'burg. I've dealt with Malloy in Winchester and they seem to be decent. I've also heard good things about Battlefield Toyota in Culpepper. Thanks!
