Toyota 4runner CV Rear Drive Shaft

This is what you need if your Toyota 4 Runner or early model Toyota Pickup 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 Spicer joints. 
  • Includes 8 new 10mm bolts and nuts which may be required at either end of the shaft. 

Please check out our Toyota tech page below. If you have any questions along the way, give us a call.

Awesome company Awesome people Awesome product

I have a lifted 87 Toyota pickup thats having bad vibration. I emailed Tom Wood’s Drive shaft and Shawn replied within 15 minutes. He was very helpful with answering my questions and very knowledgeable. He recommended the double cardan driveshaft. I took some measurements and put in an order right away. Fast shipping. As soon as I received the order, I installed it right away. Installation was super easy and went smooth. Took the truck for a test run and BOY..! Am I one happy guy. No more vibration. Highly Highly recommended. If you looking for good driveshaft Tom Woods is the place to look. Look no elsewhere. I will be ordering a Front driveshaft soon.

Perfect fit

Ordered these for my 83 pickup and they fit perfect with a single trans case, they look amazing and spin with no binding at all. They even surprised me with how fast they were shipped since I’m in Canada, 5 day turn around for a custom driveshaft is awesome. I will definitely buy from them again


I am extremely happy. ‘87 4runner with dual cases, I previously had a heavy wall shaft built for the trail that was rough on the highway. This shaft fit perfect and got rid of my vibes. Smooth as butter now. I was surprised to receive it in NC so fast, turnaround was very quick, got it 7 days after ordering.


Ordered for a short bed 82' pickup. Arrived super fast (I think I had it in a week) and out of the box I could tell I had made the right decision. You can tell they care about their product. Great welds, a good painted finish and very professional overall. Driveshaft is extremely smooth at every speed. Ended up changing out my 3rd member and needed a different flange and they were extremely helpful over the phone. I can't wait to get further in my build and need a front driveshaft!
Also, great stickers!


1st gen 4runner dual transfer case 5" lift had terrible vibration driving on road this drive shaft was the cure.
