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.
- 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.
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!
The u joints were completely shot on my '87 Samurai. When it started wearing, things went down hill very fast. In a matter of a week the vehicle went from drive-able with some vibration to shaking so bad I had to drive it home 10mph with the hazards on. I followed the measurement instructions on this website, made my option selections and placed my order. Took less than a week to get the new one and I was up and running that Saturday. It's smooth as butter now and the build quality is excellent.
Excellent quality driveshaft. Awesome service!
My driveshaft was shipped super fast I received it it in under a week. Like the 1310 u joints much beefier, it bolted right up, no vibrations. Great product at a decent price.
Installed easy and is working well. 1986 Samurai.
