So I have a 2WD 2002 Tundra 4.7L. Right now I have the passenger tire turning, any kits out there that can get those two rear tires spinning? Reliable stuff that won't break any time soon.
The complete carrier replacement units are fairly involved. The install requires the installer to press on carrier/pinion bearings, check for depth, backlash, ring and pinion tooth pattern, pinion preload. Each needs some sort of special tool. With the ARB, the installer also needs to drill through the carrier housing to run the air line.How hard is it to put it on?
The things you'd have to worry about if you are using parts from another tundra, such as the complete axle is: gear ratio (only matters if you have 4WD and you need to match the same front gear ratio), ABS or Non-ABS. Othwerwise, the tunda rear axle is the same as the tacoma rear axles of the same year. Except the only difference is the tundra is wider and the tundra rear axle is not e-locker compatible.hope im not hijacking the thread, but i think it's related. my tundra is a 2000 so it doesn't have an LSD. to my knowledge, a truck equipped with a TRD package DOES have LSD, correct? is there any chance i could get a rear end or just a diff. out of a junked TRD tundra and put it in mine?? i can't imagine there are any severe differences in compatibility right?
If you want better traction but also be street friendly, look at the kazuma or the Detroit Truetrac. Difference between the two is that the kazuma uses clutch packs and the Truetrac is gear driven. Clutch packs in time will wear down and you'll have to rebuild.Yeah I was considering doing that approach too and just finding another Tundra but there are not many places here in Tampa. I want to do the Kazuma but I'm kinda intimidated now. :-\
Quick description on the Eaton (TRD) LSD unit:Side note, the "kazuma" and "TRD" lsd is made by Eaton. Difference between the two is clutch packs. I can't remember but one has a 200 lb load and the other is 400lb. Also note, Detroit was also bought out by Eaton.
Not really. The 2000-2002 (mid year) did NOT have the LSD option, but, had the TRD package. You will need to check carefully if pulling from a junkyard. I upgraded to the..my tundra is a 2000 so it doesn't have an LSD. to my knowledge, a truck equipped with a TRD package DOES have LSD, correct?
