Default Access to SSTs for differential rebuild?

Howdy all,

My pinion seal finally crapped out completely so I'm taking the opportunity to regear my FZJ80. Looking at the FSM there is quite a menagerie of SSTs referenced that I theoretically need access to. For those who have done this job, are those SSTs really necessary or does China Freight have the stuff I need?

If I need the SSTs, does anyone have a lead on where they could be rented, borrowed, or stolen from? (I'm a RS member so if there are any member resources, please hook me up.)

Thanks,
Matt

-You need lots of SST's.
In/lb torque meter
Bearing puller - clamshell style
Dial indicator and mag base
Flange handle
5ft long cheater bar if sticking to a crush sleeve (you can also use an impact, but you'll want to grab a spare crush sleeve if it's your first time)
A rotating bench mount
Spanner nut wrench (easy to make yourself look up zuk)
If you have factory e-locker, you will need a die grinder and small cutoff wheels if you're replacing carrier bearings


-Required tools aside from SST's
Large air compressor
1/2 or 3/4 impact a 30mm thin wall socket (if I remember correctly)
Minimum 10T shop press with arbor assortment
Die grinder and roloc disks
Flat stone or file

And most of all patience

Anyone that owns them is likely using them to make money, and will be reluctant to lend them out. But, that list should get you on the right path.

Feel free to PM me if you're looking to have someone regear/rebuild your dropouts.


Cheers,
Jackson

Also.... For your sanity stick with quality stuff like nitro gear and koyo/Timken. Nice stuff sets up sooooo much nicer.

I would recommend reading lots about gear set-ups before you decide if you want to invest in some tools and DIY it. Check out Zuks website with lots of toyota gearing write-ups by a trusted and detailed individual here: http://www.gearinstalls.com/

Not trying to discourage you at all, I say go for it, I want to do some down the road as well. I've done some jeeps long ago but haven't done one in awhile and would want to re-tool and study up before I go setting up any new and $$ gears.

Absolutely!! Once you have the tools it's pretty straight forward but time consuming. Zuk is a great resource, I've leaned quite a bit from him. My main diff sensei (lol) was/is Brian from slee. He's built 9-10 thousand diffs from all walks.

One caution about learning from zuk is that he makes it look easy it's kind of an a$$ beating.

Investment wise you are looking at about $1000 for the tools needed, but you have great forum and RS folks to help guide you.
