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.
Now I'm asking why I waited so long... really great unit...build quality (and sticker game) is awesome! Max double lifted on 33's 2nd gen runner feels like a stock ride on the highway again! Going from a single joint to double cardan, you will need to bring up the pinion. Just get some HD adjustable RUCA's ... you need those anyway too, right!
I have ordered TW shafts for myself and my customers for years, and they never fail to provide a great product and customer service and support!
I ordered a drive shaft for my 2002 Toyota 4Runner, the stock double cardan joint was shot and I couldn’t find any new u-joints or bearings anywhere that fit. I measured the old shaft and ordered the new drive shaft on a Monday, on Tuesday I received a call from a customer service rep saying that they were missing parts for my new drive shaft and wouldn’t be able to ship it until the following week. He was very sincere and apologetic. But to my surprise the new drive shaft arrived at my door one week after ordering it. It was worth every penny, my 4Runner has zero vibrations and is as smooth as it was coming off the show room floor, even with 33” tires! One of the best things is that all the components of the new driveshaft are readily available if the worst did happen again! Thanks so much!
Everything in the reviews is true. I couldn’t be happier with the double Cardan rear drive shaft. No more vibrations, customer service was great. Shipping was fast!
Solved a bunch of issues on my 3rd Gen 4Runner 270K driveshaft. No more clunk, reduced vibration. Thanks for the great customer service and great products!
