I'm planning on servicing the front axle on my 80 Series TD GXL Landcruiser. I've got the bearing kit from CBC with bearings, inner axle seals, knuckle wipe seals etc. I've got lots of experience from repairing and rebuilding 2wd conventional vehicles, but never tackled a 4wd before. I'm wondering whether there are any 'tricks of the trade', or special toyota tools that may be required to do this.

Don't need any special tools, list of a few here:

Socket to suit hub nuts(about 52 or 56mm),
Copper hammer,
Circlip pliers-outer,
Bearing packer,
Assorted sockets, rings & open-end spanners.
Plenty of rags, hand towels & HAND CLEANER.

Recommend the 80's cool site, as suggested above, the article is as good as a w'shop manual.

Seen it all, Done it all.
Can't remember most of it.

the socket is 54mm BTW
Follow the manual with bearing torques, u will need Lithium grease for the wheel bearings and moly grease for the c/v joints.

Thanks for your info guys - checked out the website, i guess the LC is similar to the patrol. I think I've got most things covered...just need a 54mm socket and of course a manual for the torgue settings(i reckon i'll spend the $ and go genuine).
