Toyota CV Front Drive Shaft

This will not work for any Toyota trucks that have a solid axle swap (SAS) or a shackle reversal. If you have an (SAS) or shackle reversal please call us. Or if you have something else that is creating a unique set of problems and need a shaft with abnormally high angle, long slip, or high strength, look here and give us a call for more info. 

This is what you need if your Toyota 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 only for vehicles with a drive shaft length of 40" or less. For shafts longer than 40", look here

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" diameter .120" wall DOM steel tubing. Better quality and thicker 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.

Watch this video for a demonstration on measuring. The vehicle in the video is a Tacoma but the concept is the same for any Toyota.

Great product and process

My second drive shaft order from Tom Woods. These guys have the process down to a science. After lifting my land cruiser, we got the double cardan front drive shaft to allow for the steeper angle.
Replacing the rear drive shaft last year removed all vibration while driving.

Vibration gone!

Thanks to Tom Woods double cardan drive shaft for solving the weird sounds and vibrations after installing a 3.5" lift into my 80 series Land Cruiser. Mysterious sounds plagued my truck since the lift but after reading other reviews about double cardan solutions for the front drive shaft I tried it out and the result is fantastic. Fitment was easy and the shaft performs great. Thanks for the quality product!!

These custom shafts ship fast and work great! It really smoothed out the driveline vibrations from my suspension lift.

Fast and simple

Fast delivery and simple online ordering.. installed last week and has made the difference with the 2.5 inch lift .. thank you
97 FZJ80 with H151 manual 5 speed .. switching transmissions lengthens the rear and shortens the front shafts . With the lift the angle is increased and a double cardin is far so good 🤞🏼
