Stock Toyota inner axle seals are prone to failure from the beginning. They do a horrible job of sealing inbetween the factory inner axles and the axle housing itself. Why does this matter? The birfields are designed to have higher viscosity lubrication (not gear oil) When gear oil seeps past the factory inner axle seals, you have 2 things happen. 1. The Birfields can wear out quicker and 2. The oil seeps out the front axle housing because the wiper seals are meant to keep in the grease, not oil and keep out crud and debris. These axle seals fix the common problem at a great price.  They are incredibly worth the investment.

When Trail Gear tested the strength of 6 Stud knuckles, they found that running 6 OEM Studs on the 6 Stud knuckles was stronger than running 4 ARP Magnum Studs on a stock 4 stud knuckle.  So, with this information Trail-Gear looked at ways to make it stonger than even running OEM and not the cost of ARP studs. Now, Stronger and longer than stock Toyota replacement knuckle studs and more affordable than our Magnum Studs these studs will provide great strength without breaking the bank. Each stud is constructed from a proprietary metal made exclusively for Trail Gear.  These studs are manufactured to Trail-Gear's strict specifications and are significantly stronger than OEM standard (testing exceeded Class 12.9 standards). Trail Gear super metal knuckle studs are .250” (1/4”) longer than stock to accommodate all aftermarket steering arms. Like our Magnum Studs, TG super metal studs feature an integrated 8mm hex head for easy removal. These studs should be your first choice for knuckle hardware when repairing or upgrading your high-steer system.

We recommend using Locktight on the lower threads when installing knuckle studs. Studs should be tightened to 40 ft-lbs in the knuckles. Stud nuts should be tightened to 75 - 80 ft-lbs.

Fits 1979-1985 Toyota front solid axle knuckle.

NOTE: This is enough hardware to complete one six shooter knuckle. Purchase 2 kits for both knuckles.

Kit consist of the following:

  • Knuckle cone washers (QTY: 6)
  • Knuckle wave washers (QTY: 10)
  • Knuckle nuts (QTY: 10)
  • TG Super Metal knuckle studs (QTY: 10)

Tired of wiping big clumps of dirty sandy grease off of your knuckle balls after every trip? So are we. The engineering department at Trail Gear was asked to look at the problems with the OEM design along with what was currently offered on the market and they came up with a one-piece, high grade polyurethane seal that is durable and will give you a lifetime of dependability. Trail Safe Knuckle Ball Wiper Seals are without a doubt the best in the industry. No other design is comparable in performance and quality.

The Trail Safe Knuckle Ball Wiper Seal is a double sided seal that keeps grease in and dirt out, all while eliminating the use of the OEM felt and rubber. Since it is made from seal-grade polyurethane, not UHMW, the seal is pliable enough to stretch over the knuckle ball during installation. This eliminates the need to cut the seal for installation which allows water to enter the knuckle ball and for grease to escape. Trail Safe Knuckle Ball Wiper Seals are sold in pairs with the legendary Rock Rings.

One kit will complete one axle. Kit Includes:

  • (2) Trail Safe Knuckle Ball Seal Wipers
  • (1) Rock Ring Kit
  • (16) Rock Ring Bolts
  • (16) M6 Lock Washers

After years of development and testing, these knuckles and steering arms have set a new standard in Toyota knuckle strength and reliability. The Fully Loaded Six Shooter Kit totally eliminates the problem of broken steering knuckles and studs. The addition of two studs in each arm effectively prevents the steering arm from becoming loose or shearing off the studs under extreme loads. The knuckle housing was designed with thicker than stock material and larger gussets have been added around the outside of the knuckle for extra strength. Precision CNC machined, each set of knuckles and steering arms are inspected and tested for the highest quality of products that Trail-Gear can deliver.

Included in The Hilux/Pickup/4Runner Fully Loaded Six Shooter Kit is a special 6 hole shim pack for use between the top of the knuckle and the steering arm. Also included is a 1/2" coarse thread bolt to help remove the steering arms for knuckle service. To remove the steering arms, remove all 6 nuts, then install the bolt in the top of the arm. As the bolt is tightened, the steering arm is pulled up off the knuckle. Stock lower bearing plates and shims from your old knuckles are needed for knuckle assembly. A minimum of four additional steering arm studs are needed for installation. We think the Fully Loaded Six Shooter Kit is so bullet proof that we have given it our world famous no questions asked lifetime warranty.

NOTE: DOES NOT INCLUDE KNUCKLE STUDS AND HARDWARE, SOLD SEPARATELY

Can also use on 40 and 60 Series Landcruiser

In many cases, stock wheel bearing nuts and star washers can be used several times. However, with the increased maintenance required of an off road vehicle, these will need to be replaced.

Toyota ARP 2000 Hub Stud Kit, for 1 Hub

With 30 spline birfields, six stud knuckles, and chromo hub gears or drive flanges, the next weak link in your front axle is your hub studs. When they fail you will be left without four wheel drive, and often times the hub will be unrepairable. Trail-Gear, in partnership with ARP, have designed the most durable hub stud on the market. These hub studs are made from the strongest material ARP can manufacture for this type of fastener. ARP 2000 material has a tensile strength of 220,000 PSI and the ARP 2000 hub stud is cadmium plated to ensure that it is protected from rust and corrosion for many rough years to come. On the top of the stud we machined a 6mm hex head so that installation and maintenance is easy and no special tools are required. ARP 2000 hub studs are sold in kits of six with all the necessary hardware included.

Kit Includes:

  •  (6) ARP 2000 Hub Studs
  •  (6) Conical Washers
  •  (6) Lock Washers
  •  (6) Nuts

FJ80 Knuckle Kit Hellfire Fabworks

by RuffStuff
Sold out
$1,850.00

The HellFire Knuckles are a specially made high-pressure casting. They endure several hours of a highly difficult machine process.  The original designer Billy Weiss was determined to build everything better than factory.

He addressed the high steer issue by incorporating true high steer arms with 6 bolt retention and shimless adjustment. He reinforced the knuckle in just about every way. Then he took what we've learned from the mini truck knuckles over the ages--that the Toyota steering arm mounting bolts are too close together and undersized, causing the steering arm bolts to constantly require tightening and the studs to break.

To remedy this common issue, Billy created a 6 stud mounting with sufficient space between the studs to lessen the leverage which caused loosening and breakage. Billy took this project 90% there, then we did the fine tuning to make it what it is today. We took this one step further by using more common, less expensive, and stronger Dana 60 studs. The outer four studs are Dana 60 (Grade 10.9) and the inner two are 1/2" Allen head bolts (Grade 14). The tie rod and drag link holes are tapered for FJ80 tie rod ends (TRE) but can be reamed to accept GM 1 Ton TRE's or Heim Steering. Each arm comes double tapered for left-hand and right-hand drive applications. Another great feature he added was eliminating the use of shims and going to a set screw adjustment to set preload.

These only come with 25mm Trunnion Pins and bearings. Doing this vastly increases strength and load carrying capability. This is standard and not something we charge extra to upgrade. A new lower Trunnion cap is included and the bolt holes are counterbored to protect the bolt heads against any damage. We took a great product and made it even better.

This is the seal that seals the front wheel bearings in the hubs against the spindle. This is not the inner axle seal. This is a seal that needs to be replaced anytime you remove your wheel bearings.

This is not a cheap seal as found in many knuckle rebuild kits, this is a high quality full steel encased, dual lip replacement.

These are sold individually.
