One other question, last night I noticed that some of the nuts holding the
flange onto the diff looked stripped or close to it, does anyone know what
size/grade those are so that I can pick up a few incase I need them? Also,
is it true that the locking washer goes on the bolt side and not the nut
Kyle, I'm not an 80 guy, but advise from my 40 experience says get new
bolts, nuts & washers from Toyota. I replaced the drive flange hardware
with off-the-shelf grade 12.9 metric stuff, and I could not keep it tight.
I experienced the same sort vibration you described earlier as a result of
loose hardware. I replaced all 16 fasteners with OEM and problem solved...
Oh, I don't recall washer placement, I'd check the diagram in the FSM or
just have a look at the screenshot at the parts desk.
