OK. Driver's side is all torn apart, painted, and ready to be rebuilt. But I have a small problem. When I took my hub apart to paint it and put new grease in it, I lost a piece. This was the first time that I had torn a Toyota hub apart, so I didn't know that there was a small spring with a ball on the end of it inside the red knob. Well, I found the spring, but I can't findthe little ball. Is this ball really all that important?? Does anyone know what I am even talking about? If I do need it, can I get it from Toyota? Or will I have to go to a junkyard and buy a whole hub just for the little tiny ball that may not even be in there? Also, I was missing one of the cone washers for some reason. Where can a replacement cone washer be sourced from? Toyota? Please help!

Thanks

I did the same exact thing

See post 207.  I ended up taking the other hub apart, snagging the ball bearing and headed to a local bearing shop.  They had something similar in size, I bought 10 of them for $0.25 and it worked perfect.  I don't remember the size but it's small.

go to a bike shop...they should have a selection of balls that you can use....take the one from the opposite side hub to match it up

Arms are not bent and the springs are reversed arched from the factory, they came that way. Though if they are originals they'd be a little bit more arched than when they were new.  If anything has changed it would be the steering rod, that is usually where something bends. Even a little bend will make it pull but sometimes when you really bend one it'll look like this.

OUCH!!! I bet that made it a little toed in. I guess that little ball is very important then. Well I guess I will look in my parts washer (a.k.a. coffee can w/ brake cleaner), and see if i can find it. If it isn't there I will use a giant magnet to see if i can pick it up off of the driveway. The problem is that we have been extending our driveway right next to my truck, so if it isn't in the part washer, I probably won't find it. Thanks for the info!

Yeah it was pretty pigeon toed at that point, but it was an easy fix. A winch, some well placed lumber, a couple C-clamps, a piece of L-channel and a lot of welding.

my springs look about like that. i thought that i needed new ones but i was fine. then i drove into a giant ditch and my passenger side sags a good 2-3" lower than the drivers side. i'm prolly getting some springs from Downey or Allpro.
lets not and say we did.

How the hell does one get a birfield apart!?!? Do you take the c-clip out before banging on it with a brass punch, or after? I have been working on it for like an hour, and I am very pissed because I can't get it apart, and the FSM is very vague when it comes to getting the two shafts apart. Please help immediately!!! :maddest:

I can't get all the old grease out and put new grease in without taking it apart. I need to figure out how to get it apart. Help.

find a tube just larger than the diameter of the birf. Put a rag in the bottom to protect the splines when the shaft drops in the tube. Drop the birf into the tube shaft side down hard and it will come out....you do have a FSM right?

unless you dropped it in the dirt  or see metal pieces  in it  just use a  wad of grease  in your hand  and pack the birf,  to  much chance  on damage  if  you remove it  completely

i have an fsm. it doesn't work the way they say it should. i have been wailing on it for 4 hours. it now has brass pieces all over in it. what do i use to pack it? cv stuff, or the regular grease i have? I am about to say screw it and take it to toyota and have them take it apart. Then I can clean it out, pack it with fresh, new whatever, and put it all back together. do you have a pic of this pipe idea? I don't think i quite understand.

get a piece  about 3 feet long,   slide it over the inner shaft so it  comes up snug against the birf star, then smack the other end of the pipe on the concrete,  watch for the falling birf  it hurts

you can remove the c clip but you dont have to. that just keeps the birf  from going to far onto the axle

:woohoo: Today, kudos go to: DTB and Glen!!! :ladys-man: Thank you both so much! The pipe idea worked perfectly! Now, is there supposed to be a c-clip at the end of the shaft? I am assuming so, because there is a groove. Where can I source this clip? Toyota? NAPA? THANKS!!!! :woohoo:
