Default Lock Right

Helping the son today install a differential locker in his 2003 Toyota 2WD. May put in rear brakes after tear down inspection.

Chris does this type of installation require the tender reset of pinion to gear mesh as was before?

The quick answer to your question is no, according to the manufacturer of the locker. We did have to take the ring gear off to get the cross pin out so I am leery of their statement that no setting of the pinion/ring gear is required. We will see how that goes.

The rest of the story is that the son bought the wrong kit. Not totally his fault. He had went to their website and put in his vehicle info and two listings came up. One for open differentials and one for limited slip. He believed he did not have limited slip in his truck, so bought the one for open rear ends.

Sad part is he does have a limited slip rear end and the other listing is for that type of differential. We had completely disassembled his differential and found the cross pin in his kit was larger than the one for the differential.

Now he has to wait till Monday to verify the other listing is the right one for his truck, then make a rush order, and then return the original one for a refund.

While we were stopped with that he decided to replace the rear brake shoes so we went to town and bought a set of rear shoes. Got back, cleaned up all the parts and backing plate, started the installation of the shoes and found that they gave his the wrong shoes.

Went back and exchanged them for the right ones. This time we took the old ones to verify the new ones were right. Now too late to do the brake job, and it started to rain, so it is on the list for tomorrow morning.

All in all, a crappy day!!!!!!!
