Corroded hub found during rebuild- would you run it?
« on: Apr 18, 2020, 11:05:08 PM »
I grabbed an 84 solid axle from my dad but it lived itís life in the salt belt so during my SAS and axle rebuild I found a pretty bad rust corrosion on the hub.  I donít want to go thru all the effort if it doesnít seal right.  Would you run it, find some used ones in better condition, or buy new replacements?  I see there are OEM options and upgraded versions. 

Itís going on my 87 4runner which is my DD.

Hey Josh,

Well those are way too pitted.  On a daily driver or trail rig I would NOT use those.  :shake:

That hub houses your wheel bearings... you would NOT want one of those fracturing and causing a possible wheel to lock up or worse break off at 70 MPH!  :yikes:

I'd clean them up some more and then decide.

Find some ifs hubs...chances are you already have a set if your vehicle was running..they will make front axle same width as rear..without spacers.. you'll need these..

When rebuilding solid axle..flip the knuckles from left to right as per instruction on kit..you'll have to source some rotors and calipers from late model tacoma or 4runner...I found my rotors/calipers on a 3rd gen forum..alot of those guys are doing a big brake upgrade..the end result will give you slip off rotors..

In order to "clean" those, you'd have to machine them in a lathe.

Ain't worth the time or cost....  https://autoplicity.com/cart

Just my opinion - it may be worthless.

Thanks for the responses.  Thatís what I figured.  What you are seeing is cleaned up the best I could.  You should have seen them when I started...

 I do have good IFS hubs and was looking at going that route but many of the builds I saw looked a little sketchy.  Iíll check out the front range kit.

I agree with Ovarock. Run IFS hubs.  1 1/2" wider than solid axle, so it eliminates the need of a spacer, and everything else stays exactly the same. Direct bolt on.  You don't need the Tacoma brake kit to run the IFS hubs, but it is a good upgrade.  -Trevor

For removing rust, it is hard to beat Metal Rescue for passive rust removal, just have to have something big enough to soak the part in.
