Quote: Sigh Mr Master ...I hate it when I'm right sometimes .. I was hoping you would of come back here and flamed my back side and got it pressed off at the around the corner shop .. I've only pressed of three Mitsu axle bearings in my travels .. Now I think you need to play in a nother pond to get this fixed .. We here in Mitsu world have know clue on how to do a few things axle bearings ,setting up rear ends ,and a few other things .. Why ..They dont die ..In general ... Boy we sure know about cracked heads and crank balancers falling off ... "I" would wonder over to the Toyota forum ... The jigging and tooling to do a Toy axle is the the same as Mitsu just need the right hole in the mount plate and the jig to bolt the axle too.. If you can do a Toy axle you can do a Mitsu axle ... Toy axle bearings are a roller ball bearing and die alot .. Mitsu axle bearing is a timken bearing and is far better .. I've pressed 100's of Toy bearings .. Three Mitsu's and two were not bad but the customer was just sure they were what he needed ..He got the boot as a custmor in my shop..I'm the only one in 75 miles around me who can press a Japanese truck bearing off .... And do not take new customers but still do it for shop and people .. But you have to go through customer that knows me or a parts store that knows me .. I stopped doing it for a time .. But just can't leave people hanging and going through what you are ..So I still do them ...
Ask the Toyota forum ... Ask the parts houses they know were the "good" mechanics are hiding ..And the shops that are bad too... Stop a Snap-On tool truck and ask them were to go ... Your in NYC with all the hard winters and all ..The Toy Boys around you must eat axle bearings like candy .. Find the Toy off roader around you and see were they go ...
By the way these bearing are packed with grease like a front wheel bearing ..If you do not grease the other axle in you truck its right behind this one ..They have the same miles on them ..
I bet you could not find me ether unless you were looking hard ... Just got sick of being hated over being a Mechanic and being told I was full of it by non-mechanics so I stepped back and went underground ...sigh ..
Try uneedapart.com it a junkyard hot line site ..
Sorry on you troubles

You seriously need to change your tone around here. The people of this forum are NOT going to be talked down to by anyone. While we appreciate the good advice peppered into your post, we do NOT appreciate the condescending nature of the rest of it.
I don't care if you're the Mitsubishi engineer who designed the differential itself.
I've followed your posts since you've gotten here, and it seems like in every one you've got a serious attitude, and that is going to stop.
You're NOT the only one here who can set up a differential, or who has ran a shop.
