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.

  • Great! After posting this I've chat with someone who was also suggesting brake cleaner. And I have some in the garage, thanks DXM! Jul 5 '11 at 3:00

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.

  • Thanks, I've been a member prior to get my Land Cruiser. This wasn't a Land Cruiser specific question so that's why I posted here! Jul 6 '11 at 15:24
