Didn't get a rebuild kit. Just new boots. Took the axle apart, cleaned everything thoroughly, and put it back together. I used the same stuff I use for wheel bearings, which is a #2, the regular old kind you get at the auto store. I just call it axle grease.

Well, It has been documented and proven that is not a good idea, and you have 150k on them??
This is ground breaking you may have used a rare form off #2 grease that everyone else in the world says dont work
Can you remember exactly what kind or brand?? this is very interesting, are all of these auto manufacures wrong??

Banning you wont make you go away so why dont you impress us all and just go away! Im guessing that you wont because like the snake oil you push you are your biggest and only fan!

Yep good old snake oil, except this snake oil is something only a few know about,

I thought everyone should, and since Toyota tells you to use a type of grease that causes all sorts of trouble, didnt seem very nice,
get them to sell you the snake oil or at least tell you that they use in it and what is compatible,

This statement is from Kurt Williams the fist time I went to Utah Rock Crawler,

He says this was out of context, I agree, all the other statements in the 5 or so page thread was BS
I was poking holes in his suction hose, and he didnt like it, but I did pick up on the one statement that was correct ,the post has been deleted
"Take it to a shop that knows what they are doing. For $600 you can get a complete knuckle overhaul, with the correct parts and fluid and not worry about your axle for another 30 years"

What is this correct fluid?? sounds like snake oil to me, lasts 30 years??
wow, super slippery snake oil, type of snake oil if you are a parts guy gives you a forked tongue,or fingers,

Heres a link to the little hub of IH8mush

Poor old Robbie went and talked to this Joker first, got pumped full of BS, sad, hate to see a fellow grease monkey being duped,

And as far as why I am here, you have Rover 67 to thank for that,

True Rover67 did bring you over, and he has since apologized for doing so. We thought about banning him too, but he has some enduring qualities unlike yourself. Isn't there someone else you can annoy? Friends? Family? Poisonous reptiles?

Aren't the pens point at the exact same location, just that the inner whatever you call it is rotated about 90 degress?

Oh, and good one Dr. Schlegs...

wow, the pen in example A points to 9 o'clock

The pen in example B points to 6 o'clock

How is it you cant see that,?? its is the entry point of one of lube grooves, anyone like to comment on why the Japanese engineers where nice enough to put it at the 6 o'clock position,???

But of course the clown and Joker professors at Toyota university ruined all that for you,
So the mechanic A and B don't really matter, Not when Toyota tells them to use a lube that will not flow,

It is difficult to present this information when it is contrary to what Toyota says
But if you where to stop and look at what they do, it makes sense,
These axles will last 30 years easy, if left alone,
Get them to sell you this snake oil that makes this happen then I will leave you all alone,
