Front / rear axle diff gaskets

Post by JDNightFox » Sat Dec 22, 2018 3:45 pm

Has someone found part numbers for the front and rear differential gaskets? I need to pull my rear axle and I would like to put an actual gasket on it.

So far I found these: https://www.carid.com/fel-pro/different ... l=93622014 for the rear axle
Also found Toyota part number 42181-12010 from https://www.discountpartsmonster.com/au ... ntial-scat

Front axle part number 41182-16010 from https://parts.olathetoyota.com/auto-par ... -axle-scat

Is the front and rear the same?

Someone please verify if these are correct

I think the axle / transmission oil drain plug gaskets are 12157-10010 also

front and rear gaskets for the diff are not the same at all. front has a cover, on an alloy case with an irregular shape. rear is the third member assembly that bolts to a stamped metal housing with a round shape.

I would be surprised if you can find them new. you may have to make them, or revert to using Form-a-gasket (like everyone else).

The rear gasket I found does look like the correct one, but I have yet to find a front for it

I use a thin layer of ultra gray RTV on most things anymore instead of gaskets, I've had a lot better results in terms of leaks, plus it's cheap and you don't have to worry about finding it.

I use the FPIG from Toyota part # FIPG 00295-01281 for this type of thing. Seems to work better than generic silicone sealants.
