    This is probably a dumb question but I have a 2002 with a automatic trans and I guess a manual 4x4 transfer case (not the push button 4 wheel drive). I have looked all over and was wondering is both front and rear output shaft seals the same? The one that is leaking on mine is the front output shaft. I was also wondering how you figure out what transfer case you have? I ordered part # 90311-41012.

    Was the truck 4wd swapped?

    A 2002 wont have a manual tcase from the factory.

    Toyotapartsdeal.com has a pretty decent database that you can search.

    I believe this is the seal you want. But you'll want to verify for yourself. It's calling it out as the front output seal for a 2002.

    https://www.toyotapartsdeal.com/oem/toyota~seal~oil~for~transfer~case~90311-41010.html

    The one that I linked is calling out that it was replaced by the part number you ordered.

    Thanks @El Taco Diablo! I typed my Vin in on toyota's website and it says it was a 4x4 from factory but doesn't give me any details on the transfer case

    But you don't have a button on the 4wd shifter?

    No it doesn't have a button. It does have the ADD or whatever it's called that engages the front differential but the transfer case itself is manual. When I was doing searches on here before I posted I did find a thread and it sounded like quite a few people has the manual transfer case instead of the electronic push button.

    Right on. That's wierd though. I thought all post 2000 had a button.

    Regardless... looks to me like you ordered the correct seal.

    J shift was available through the later years of 1st gen, manual hubs were last used in 2000 though iirc.

    Not sure on the seals question

    Maybe that was what I was thinking about with 2000.

    At any rate :thumbsup:
