Front Toyota Axle to Wide ?? Axle widths ??
Well here I am lost as usual.
The front samurai suspension is pulled.
OEM leaf springs installed.
Toyota axle lifted on hydraulic jacks,
Passenger side leaf spring centering pin in the Toyota axle's pad.
The driver side is over 3/8 of in inch off; The Toyota Front axle is too wide!
Is this a bad joke or what is going on?
I have checked my leaf springs and neither side is bent in anyway.
Should the front Axle from a 1980 Toyota Pickup fit without any coaxing?
I can use a large 'C' clamp, and undo the front shackles so that the pins drop in.
Now the front leaf spring ends are pigeon towed and the front shackles are sideways.
What has every one else running Toyota Pickup Axles done in the past?
Has anyone else has this problem?
Let me know, maybe I should pull the Toyota axles and go with SPOA samurai axles!
