Toyota 4runner CV Rear Drive Shaft

This is what you need if your Toyota 4 Runner is lifted and you are experiencing vibrations due to increased angles. Also a great upgrade for Toyota that came with a stock double cardan drive shaft. This is a rear shaft only and can be made any length you need from 35" to 50" long. If you are looking for a front shaft look here. If you can't find exactly what you are looking for, give us a call. 

Toyota drive shaft lengths and flange patterns vary. In our experience there is no single standard length or flange patterns for any particular model. To ensure that you get the right thing you will need to take a couple measurements before ordering your drive shaft. You need to measure the distance from your transfer case flange to your differential flange. You will also need to measure the bolt pattern at each end. It is important that you measure the bolt pattern on each end because they are often not the same at both ends.   

Key product features

  • Uses 1310 series universal joints. These are the most common size of u-joint there is. Replacement joints are much easier to find than stock Toyota style joints.
  • Shaft uses 2.5" diameter .083" wall DOM steel tubing. Better quality tubing than stock Toyota shafts use.
  • Can be built using our greaseable Goldseal universal joints or non-greaseable  joints. 
  • Includes 8 new 10mm bolts and nuts which may be required at either end of the shaft. 

Please check out our Toyota tech page below. If you have any questions along the way, give us a call.

Awesome experience

After measuring and ordering a new driveshaft for my 97 4runner, it arrived in about 3 days. It was a perfect fit, awesome quality and installed easily. I've put about 500 miles on it so far and there isn't much more I could as for. Highly recommend and will come to Tom Woods for any driveshaft needs in the future!

Peace and quiet

New to the 4runner scene, knew I had a serious driveline issue. Lots of research into how to resolve. I tried rebuilding, but the slack in the center joint was just too much. Tried the junkyard route, no luck! Bit the bullet and ordered from Tom Woods. Wish I would have just bought this awesome driveline instead of wasting my time and money on something else. Worth every penny! Fit perfect, drives awesome. Amazing what an improvement this driveline was. Even my 17 year old daughter noticed a difference in how it drives. Thanks Tom Woods!
