I'm currently servicing (changing seals/gaskets, some cleaning and repainting some parts) my front axle on a Toyota Land Cruiser 87. I'm also putting new brake rotors/calipers/pads.
What is the best way to clean the inner axle components from all the old grease/oil?

I always use brake cleaner for all metal parts, some of which could be related to actual brakes. It's good for for anything from gears to axles, bearing races, rotors.

ih8mud.com forums is a great resource for land cruisers with an extremely loyal following - I own an 80 series and use it for reference and help for all kinds of maintenance.
