Samurai Drive Shaft, Upgraded Stock Type

This shaft uses a single universal joint at each end. We also sell a double cardan (CV) style Suzuki drive shaft. If you aren't sure what type you need, give us a call. Suzuki Samurai drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any Sammy that is still running a stock drive shaft. Suzuki stock drive shafts used fairly small and low grade components. Add a lift, bigger tires, and decades of wear and tear and the result could be badly worn or even worse a broken stock drive shaft. Tom Wood's Suzuki drive shafts are built using only the highest quality components. Key features listed below. 

  • 2" diameter 0.120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • Bigger and stronger than stock spline stub. 
  • Forged slip yoke. 
  • 1310 series joints. Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer non-greaseable joints.
  • Your choice of spline and slip yoke options, more about that here.
  • Best of all every shaft is custom built to whatever length you need. So you can be sure that you will get the right thing the first time around.

Samurai drive shaft lengths and flange patterns vary a bit and we want to make sure you get the right thing. That is why we require measurements before building the shaft. Measuring is simple and easy. You can read more about how to measure in the link below.

Switched out my old drive shaft on my 87 Suzuki samurai with Tom Wood's Custom Drive shaft and what a difference. The old one was on its way out, installed the new shaft with no problems. Took it out for a test run, and I have more traction, more power, smoother ride and quieter. I definitely recommend Tom Wood's if you want a quality and sturdy Drive shaft!

87 rear driveshaft

Works better than factory. Shipped fast, flanges fit up perfect, and has no vibration when driving 55+mph. Will definitely be ordering another for my front driveshaft!

'87 Suzuki Samurai #2 (front) drive shaft.

Well done! Awesome ordering process, service, and quality. From other reviews, this level of customer satisfaction is a consistent practice from Tom Wood's, which is an admirable goal for any business and requires strong core values to achieve over time. Clear, detailed yet simple measuring instructions made it easy to order. The drive shaft arrived within a few days, and fit as it should. Clearly well made, and tagged with quality checks and order details. Thanks!!

Samurai build

I have bought 3 drivelines over the last 6 months for various samurai projects. They have all showed up on my porch in 3 to 4 days. Excellent quality at a great price, made exactly to my measurements. I will be buying from Tom Woods from here on out.

1987 Samurai rear driveshaft

I broke my yoke on a snow wheeling trip due to the small u-joints. I ordered this driveshaft to replace the small weak driveshaft and man this new driveshaft is everything and more, super beefy, great craftsmanship, fast shipping [ day early] and looks great! Not to mention the instructions are simple to fallow. I highly recommend ordering from Tom woods!
