Bearing Race Height on Knuckle
« on: Sep 25, 2018, 07:12:47 PM »
Going through and rebuilding my axles, does the height of this bearing race look correct on the knuckle? It is sitting over-flush by 1-2 mm.
It is sitting over flush, and I didn't take a picture of the old race. Before I go digging through the trash for the old race to compare heights, I thought I would ask you fine folks first.

This is the rebuild kit from Marlin, and the bearings are Nachi.

Cheers!

The bearings and races in the marlin crawler axle rebuild kits are a different taper than factory.  The factory bearings are much tapered, which means they support top load.  However as toyotas are not very heavy and do not supply a lot of top load, but our tires hitting rocks cause lots of side load, Marlin Crawler gets bearings and races that have a steeper taper to support more side load.  The end result is a slightly taller bearing as well, but not so tall that it would make a difference for operation or install. The knuckle should still slide right over them.
