    hard to tell from the pic, but if it's coming from the front output companion flange seal it would be gear oil.

    I just got the seals to do my front output on my T-case as it's leaking too.

    So the UCA checked out to be in good shape this morning when the Alignment was done so I’m not gonna worry about replacing that at this time so I want to focus on the rear shocks now.
    I have the yellow Bilstiens right now,

    I have a 1 inch lift because of my helper springs for my trailer, what shocks should I go with in the back in your opinion, ? bilstein 5100?
    That will Complement the Kings I can’t use the OEM king shocks in the back because of the helper springs

    There are 5100s available that work with up to 2 inches of lift, those would be a solid affordable option. If you want something a little more performance oriented to go along with the Kings up front, the rear Icon 2.0s like what I've got arent too expensive. Mine have the remote reservoirs so they were around $500 iirc. The ones without the resis are closer to $300 for a pair. They work for 0 - 3" lift

    The 5100 shouldnt feel much different then the yellow 4600 you have now. Id think the icons like @eon_blue has would compliment the front setup better.

    I think Fox also makes an affordable rear 2.0 shock for up to 2" or so of lift... @Kwikvette has 'em I believe

    I’ve got the Icon 2.0 rear shocks without resis and All-Pro leaf springs paired with the Kings up front. I like the setup. It handles a little weight too. The bumper I just put on is 130 lbs., and I got a Leer camper shell.

    What do you mean "flow"? I mean, we saw the crazy bright white on the towers from the mirrors...

    Yep, that's gear oil from the transfer case.

    The seal you'll want to replace is Transfer Case - Front Drive Shaft Inner Oil Seal (90311-41012). You'll also need new stake nut, since once you stake it (and unstake it), Toyota recommends new - Transfer Case - Front Drive Shaft Stake Nut (90179-22016). I've only found these at the dealer, but they are only a few bucks.

    Ok, I’m thinking the HD yellow Bilstiens I have tho were probably not designed for running on a lifted back end tho and maybe I’m loosing the full travel of them?

    I'm wondering what caused it since the front output shaft rarely moves. I'm thinking breathers got plugged, so I took apart my center console today. Breather was caked in mud.

    Seems a few people are having transfer case leak problems... I have a Tcase seep as well. Just ordered all the seals and stake nuts today.

    I posted this in my 4x swap thread... but maybe it'll help here too.

    During my 4x swap my intention was to replace the input and output seals on the Transfer Case before I installed it. My local Toyota Dealership didn't do me any favors when I went to them to order the seals. They got me duplicates of one of the seals and the other seal they gave me was wrong all together. So, I decided to roll the dice and just go with the Tcase as is, and install it.

    Since the swap, my Tcase has started seeping oil. I'm not 100% sure if it's the seals or if it's the fact that I didn't allow the gasket sealer to cure enough before I torqued the case back together (when I had it apart to do the work to install the twin sticks).

    Since the gasket sealer is a question, I'm going to have to pull the Tcase to re-seal it. If I'm going to have to pull the Tcase, I'm going to go ahead and replace all the input and output seals. I sat down yesterday and figured out which seals I'm going to need... and was able to actually find the part numbers.

    https://youtu.be/8YuY6rv1hkE
    Here's a good video from @Timmah! that gives a bit of info about what's involved in one of these seals.

    Here's the parts diagram I went off of.



    Here is the page I got the parts numbers off of. This page allows you to go to the parts diagram and click on the part you need. When you click on the part, it takes you down to the part number. You can add the part to your cart and order it from this page.
    https://parts.toyota.com/a/Toyota_1...SFER-CASE--EXTENSION-HOUSING/674460-3609.html


    I found McGeorge Toyota was cheaper though. So I'll be ordering from them.
    https://toyotaparts.mcgeorgetoyota.com/

    Parts numbers are as follows
    Input seal = 36102J - Part Number 90311-40007
    Front output seal = 36111B - Part Number 90311-41012
    Front shaft seal = 33309D - Part Number 90312-23001
    Front stake nut = 36104D - Part Number 90179-22016
    Rear output seal = 36115C - Part Number 90311-41007 (Replaced by 90311-41020)
    Rear shaft seal = 33309D - Part Number 90312-23001
    Rear stake nut = 36104D - Part Number 90179-22016

    Since you're running with an inch of lift in the rear, I'd suggest you get Bilstein 5100's based on these part numbers -

    33-247724 and 33-247717

    These are meant for an inch of lift per Bilstein. You'll find another set of 5100's correctly listed for our trucks but with a different part number; those are meant for a lift exceeding 1".

    Correct.

    I would only ever suggest Fox 2.0's though if someone wants a firmer shock than the 5100's. It's only when I put weight in the back (bed rack, roof top tent, tiregate, bumper, sliders) that the ride felt perfect on trails.

    Since one of my Fox shocks blew a seal, and having removed my tent, I'm running the 5100's again and loving it.

    Did some tinkering on @RobertsT4R today after work. Not big progress, but progress none the less.


    Cut some @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc super bumps down to 1.75 inch (tall). Mounted them on some 1/8th (thick) stainless steel plates.

    I've been running this set up on my truck for over 6 months and it seems to be running (and holding up) perfect. The bumps have stayed in good shape. I have just enough travel before bump, and they haven't cracked like full sized super bumps tend to do on our 1st gens.


    Also... more progress to note. @TOP TACO was nice enough to pick up a replacement dash board, for us, while he's over in Reno... Roberts dash is blown from air bags being deployed.
