    From Toyota. I've heard the cheap part store ones don't last.



    In all seriousness, how did you torque it? Those have a weird process of torquing to like 100 ft lbs, then backing it off to 50 and staking the nut.

    I knew that, was just playin. Just an autozone special cause I needed it now.

    I just kinda torqued it to the “goodntight” spec and than backed it off a bit. Probably my problem.

    I also don’t know if I put it back together right, pretty positive I did, but ya never know.

    I'm generally a fan of the german torque spec 'guten tight', or counting the ugga-duggas on the impact, however, I would use a torque wrench on that bearing.

    FYI You don't have to take the lens off of the license plate lights. The bulbs are accessble from the rear of the bumper, just reach around and quarter turn the fitting.

    I kinda just figured it didn’t matter.... I thought all that but did was hold the drive shaft together. I wonder if the bearings toast..

    NICE!! Make sure to get inside the door panels. It's a bit of a bitch but makes a huge difference. What brand of sound deadening are you using?

    Doors are on the list. I wasn't looking forward to cutting the pieces and getting them inside, but after climbing in and out of my truck 100 times today and sitting on a little stool, I think the doors will be a welcome change.

    The deadening is some cheap Noico stuff off Amazon. Has excellent reviews, so figured it would be good enough for my purposes and save me a few bucks.

    No kidding right! I still have driver side door and headliner left to do. Probably will finish it tomorrow.

    Ooooh, last month when I posted the pics of my wife and I at CVT in Bend, you said “Nice, making a trip over there sometime next month” (paraphrasing) So I thought you were going to Bend to pick up a CVT.


    BUT I know that you already have one, so...

    I just really wasn’t thinking. Haha

    I suspected it was based on that but was not sure. I live close to the Oregon border and is an area I frequent. I get why that would seem confusing. I'm still waiting for the green light from Bobby at CVT before heading over. Still nothing concrete yet.

    Swapping my brand new OEM carrier bearing from the driveshaft I presumed to be the correct one to my old PreRunner driveshaft in preparation to have it shortened.

    Only had 92k on the original one and it's already sagging to an extent.

    Got a good deal on a brand new OEM one from a member on here for $50. Last time I checked Toyota wanted like $150-200 for it? That's a bit excessive.

    Were there 2 thin washers involved in yours at all?

    No... I was actually thinking about what you said while I was doing it. Only one thick washer on the top of the flange.

    This is the original carrier bearing from the factory so I'm pretty sure it's stock.

    I wonder if the 2 I messed with are from the original bearing (facepalm) the thing I was reading said to get the washers back in the correct order so that’s what I figured it was talking about...

    I lied. I double checked and there's was a thin washer stuck to the grease. I only found one though, can't find the other.
