Samurai Drive Shaft, Double Cardan

Double cardan type, also known as a CV. This is what you need if your Suzuki Samurai is lifted and you are experiencing vibrations or other problems due to increased angles.  We also sell a stock style Suzuki drive shaft with a single joint at each end. 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. 

  • Double Cardan design for smoother operation on lifted vehicles. 
  • 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 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. If shaft length is shorter than 21 inches there is not enough room for X spline and you must select S spline.

Old Jumpy Jeff used to shudder and shake under 40mph. Almost accepted it as a part of his character… Turns out the stock 2 joint shaft with a spacer is all kinds of bad. Whoever had my boy before went through the trouble of setting pinion angle after the lift. They did not get the right shaft. Thank you Tom Wood’s team! It is strange having a bucket that does not constantly try to shake my teeth out, hope I can get used to it.

Samurai Double cardan rear driveshaft shaft

Rear CV drive shaft on '92 Jimny JA11

After installing a SPOA I had numerous driveline related issues. It"s a project car so i did all the work myself. I spent a few weeks trying to troubleshoot the issues and clean up my work. I eventually narrowed it down to the rear drive shaft. I placed my order on a Sunday and by that Friday I received the drive shaft and later that first Saturday I was back to wheeling with no issues. This shop does excellent work! As a hobbyist I'm a huge fan of the educational resources available on the site as well. For my JDM Suzuki Jimny brethren, these drive shafts are beasts and are absolutely worth it if you need to upgrade your rig.

Double Cardan shaft

I installed a SPOA Jeep eater kit on my 86 Suzuki Samurai and the front driveline started making noise from the extreme angle. The new driveline fixed this problem. It arrived fast and fit perfectly.
