Often loose steering and leaking is
caused by worn out knuckles. Toyota used an enclosed CV joint in
the front axle. This kit is commonly referred to as a knuckle
rebuild kit. This kit contains all the bearing and seals to
rebuild your knuckles on BOTH sides. There are several reasons
may need to rebuild your knuckles. Often the inner seal begins to
leak which cause the differential oil to mix with the knuckle
grease. This makes a soupy mess and often leaks on the back side
of the tire. Another reason the knuckles are loose is the knuckle
bearings (sometimes referred to as the king pin beaings). Bigger
tires, miles, steering wear them out. They can be checked by
jacking the vehicle and rocking the tire with your hand on the 12 and 6
o'clock position if it moves excessively they need rebuild. As a
general rule, if your knuckles have not been rebuilt, they need to
- Knuckle Bearings must be replaced with the races as
well as the bearing.
- Remember how you dissassemble your knuckles, often the same shims
in the same location will provide the correct preload on knuckle
bearings. You may or may not use all the shims.
- We NEVER replace the inner c-clips in the front axle. It was
there for assembley purposes.
- Knuckle arms and hubs use cone washers to keep them tightly on
the studs. A hammer whack to the side generally makes them pop up
and then you can pull them out.
- If you are doing a mini truck disc conversion on your Land
Cruiser you will need this kit.
