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.

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.
My 3rd gen 4Runner developed a bad shake/vibration driving home from work and I suspected my u-joints/double cardan were bad. Got onto the forums and they recommended Tom woods drive shaft! Got driveshaft and installed it in 2hrs. Fixed my vibration problem and driving like new now. Completely got rid of the vibration and shake. I would recommend!
I bought the driveshaft with hopes of fixing a vibration. It turns out the driveshaft wasn’t the problem, but I ended up developing a new vibration with the new driveshaft. I reinstalled the old Toyota driveshaft after fixing vibration (rear wheel bearing) and the strange new vibration went away. I can tell it was a good driveshaft quality wise, but I think I got a lemon :/ 2 stars because it did arrive quickly and it is a well built driveshaft, just got a bad one I guess.
Came quickly. Installed without issue. Resolved a long time vibration problem. Price was better than the aftermaket.
Recieved the part quick even if I am in canada!
So far the product look solid. Pretty sure i wont have to touch it again until my 3rd gen dies!! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a driveshaft, and would buy again in the futur!
Had vibration/squeaking coming from drive shaft out of balance. Ordered one and easy 8-bolt swap. No more vibration and no more noise. Got the job done.
