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.
- 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.

Had to order a new rear shaft after swapping to Toyota axles, making that the last piece. The drive shaft came very quickly and looks great once installed. I’m very pleased with the work done for me and will be ordering a front soon.
I knew they were nice but wow, it’s a piece of art!!! It’s almost a shame not to get a rear one!!! Thanx guys, great work!!
I purchased a rear double cardan for my 87 Suzuki Samurai with a spot lift. Best decision I've made yet
The turnaround on this order was fast the drive shaft fit perfectly no more vibrations! Now I want one for the rear axle. Thank you guys for the great work!!!
I ordered the double cardan samurai driveshaft. Everything lined up great and looked solid. Haven’t had a chance to wheel it yet!
