Hey everybody, well, put my order in at wheeleroffroad for my IVD coilovers and TC UCA's today and while I'm waiting for them to arrive I'm planning to get the front locker installed in the Tundra I ordered a Lock Right I was just wondering if anyone on here has done this before and has any words of wisdom etc... to add before I dive in have thee diff ready to drop out tomorrow and the bench set up to do the work tools are set from what I can imagine I will need, pullers, press, impact wrenches, magnetic dial indicator, micrometers etc... any advice appreciated. Also have a 1615 set for the rear diff but that one seems a little more common then the clam shel;l style 7.5 that is up front. Thanks for any info. I'm going to take pics as I go along and try to do a write up for this as I couldn't find one anywhere online as well.

Yah will do just got the diff out of the truck and onto the bench still waiting for the Lock Right to arrive, have my Toyota service manual opened up and it looks pretty straight forward, as long as the carrier bearings are in good shape then I will just be doing a quick install. I'm just a detail freak so if any of the tollerances are off then things will get more complicated as I will have to reset cleareances. I haven't had any noises from the front end or anything, but the truck does have 105K on the clock and I don't want to have to tear it all back down in 20K just to deal with worn bearings etc...so wish me luck. Just a note the front diff is a bit heavier than it looks with the mounts still attached I'm guessing it weighs close to a 100 pounds. I will be popping the clam open tonight to see how everything looks tonight.
