ok - so how long does it REALLY take to do a cv axle on a runner or taco? Evidently the t100 is the same as a runner/taco, and I have a bad axle on this beast...

it's not liking the full lock right turns

Easy.

Remove ADD cap and snap ring holding the axle in.

Remove four bolts on lower ball joint (14mm)

Remove sway bar bolts (14mm deep) (both sides) on lower control arms,

Remove lower bolt for the shock (22mm?) and use a jack to push on the hub to lift the hub up and away from lower control arm (the spring tension is on the upper a arm),

Remove the (6, 17mm) nuts on the CV that connect it to the diff,

Slide the spindle out of the hub and you are home free my man

I've got it down to under an hour. B/4 you go tearing into it make sure that the sound you hear, at full steering lock, is NOT the the steering stops rubbing. If the plastic caps on the adjuster is worn through or missing, they make a hell of a noise esp. when hitting a bump at full lock.

New is more sure then, and not prohibitive if aftermarket or good boneyard is obtained.

CVJ does great rebuilds. just give them your core. Burt uses them regularly
