Pro installation tips

The front speed sensors use a 5mm hex tip socket
The rear uses a 10mm socket



After removing the stock bolts stuff the 10mm socket with some paper



Trust me this step is important. Stuff it almost to the tip



After you remove the bolt



Locate the appropriate shield for the side, they will all be marked.



In this picture we are doing the passenger front wheel.

The hole faces the hub.



Put the bolt in the hole and use your stuffed 10mm socket with a short extension.



Line the bolt up with the hole



Hand tighten and be careful not to cross thread.



Make sure it is flush against the hub



Don't over tighten the bolt, with a torque wrench I tightened to about 1/2 lbs.
But that is just my opinion I'm not sure what the torque spec from Toyota is



Passenger rear wheel
Bolts removed



Set it up, bolt in the hole, stuffed socket with extension.



Hand tighten carefully not to cross thread.
Then give it just a hint more torque with the wrench.



Make sure the edge is flush against the hub



Repeat the above steps for the driver's side.

Nice Job, Thanks Dragos

I picked mine up at the post office today and had to install at least one wheel even though it's about 114 degrees in the shop right now. Did the drivers side rear in about 15 minutes (jacked up and removed the wheel and set the axle on a jack stand)

:)I wonder why the rear is attached with the threaded stud and nut? it looks almost as though it is working double duty as an adjustment of some kind. Any idea? anyone?

Thanks again Dragos! very nice to have these and I hope you can patent this and get rich!:laugh:

livin with it beats the alternative for now

Reality is for people that can't handle drugs and alcohol. Self medicated for decades. The bitch now is I can't tie my own shoes. However, I no longer need the oxy!
