Just slap that lockright in. I'd say 99% are just put in. Most should be fine but if you want to do it right you measure and replace the thrust washer if needed.

doc Shleg's pinion flange MOVES on the pinion splines. Hopefully it is the flange and not the pinion shaft.

If it's any consolation both of those tools can be used for the same purpose in this case since the dial caliper has both an ID and OD capabilility. The micrometer would be more precise for measuring the shim thickness but after all this is an old land cruiser where plus or minus the thickness of a credit card is probably close enough

Thumbs up

OK guys,I took the easy way out . My west facing garage has been too hot for this oil orgy. I took it up to CTS in Conifer with all the "stuff" I bought for the install and let Kevin and Joe do it for a preagreed 4 hours labor. Done, and you can certainly feel it driving around but the clicking in parking lots is very soft. We will see how it performs.

Can't go wrong with a CTS install. Nice upgrade!

I wonder if you might notice an increase in your mpg as you learn to "light foot" the 60 around town

Jeff- I just filled it to check that very item. The 31x10.5 I put on last week,replacing the smaller 235's, noticeably slowed down acceleration and cornering speeds, and now I will be "clutch in" coasting on more turns. This 60 gets only 12 mpg in mixed 4wd/city/hwy anyway (4 spd) so I will keep track. No autocrossing in these things!
