Honestly, no one runs the Birfield Eliminator kits anymore. Longfield super axles are as strong as you can make mini truck front axles.

Asian Hubs are actually stronger then any other aftermarket hubs available for toyota's.

Believe he's referring to the hubs, not the hubs, not the lockouts.

The hubs just go on the spindles in place of the solid axle spindles. The 'kit' I believe is mainly a spacer ring to put the brake rotor somewhere that it lines up with the calipers.

I think on pirate4x4, you'll see a few diffferent ways to use IFS hubs and get the rotors in place. Some are a little hokey, though.

http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=515697

Thats all about IFS hub bodies. Its in the FAQ, under F for front axle. Sometimes they put things in wierd spots. I'f have thought under H for hubs..

I know this is an extremely old thread but I was wondering what would be the biggest
tire size I could run on stock '85 toyota 8" axles without braking anything.

Stock front axle without a locker will work with up to 33's. But be aware that stock birfields are GARBAGE! If you put longfields in, you could run up to 37's and a locker. I have seen 38's on stock rear shafts and no breaks. I still run stock rear shafts. The weak link with stock axles are the factory birfs.

Yeah, 33s sounds about right. 35s you can do, but want to be careful, especially when turned. I have been pretty good with 38.5s on heavy steel beadlocks with longfields up front, stock rear axles. Have broke something up front, but it was deserved.....

Default Broken 1990 4runner rear axle question

Hi, Is it possible to use a v6 axle housing off a 1990 4runner on a 1990 4runner 4cyl? My tracbar weld broke and I re-welded it but it snapped again and I was wondering if I can just install the v6 axle into my 4cyl 4runner and use the 4cly diff and axle shafts in the v6 housing?


Thanks for any feedback,
Matt

Yep, they are the same. The onlt difference is in the 3rd members themselves. Housing/shafts are the same.
