    I have an 05 Tundra that i use everyday for work. 160,000 hard city driving miles and always with a load. It's finally come time to change the rear differential bearings and maybe ring and pinion gears. I don't know anything about or have the tools to set the backlash to do it myself but i think, and please tell me if i'm wrong. That Toyota's have the carrier assembly or third member that can be dropped out of the housing?? I would like to purchase one if there is such a thing so that i dont have to worry about setting backlash for the gears and preload shims for the bearings, etc.

    Check out east coast gear centre, they should be able to help you out with a rebuilt 3rd member. To swap you have to pull the axles with the brake backing plates as an assembly, but it's not too bad.
