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.

3rd Gen 4runner - Rear Drive shaft.

Wanted to upgrade my rear drive shaft since I both wanted to upgrade for offroading purposes and also because I just needed to replace my U joint (which is a nightmare in these trucks) so I figured why not. Have been pleasantly surprised with its performance. Fit perfectly / easy install and I've experienced noticeably less vibration now. Truly awesome.

97 4runner Rear Drive Shaft

Couldnt be more happy with the replacement shaft. My truck had horrible vibrations at freeway speeds and clunking at low in town speeds. Parked the rig when it got bad. Took me a bit of research to determine most likely cause was rear driveshaft, fingers crossed not transmission issues as wel. Measured and ordered new shaft on a Monday, showed up on Thursday. Free shipping was awesome. Installed on Saturday and the rig is smooth as silk from 0-85+ on the freeway. Everything fit perfectly. Rig had 325,000 miles on it. This will hopefully extend another 325,000.

Stopped the vibration

Shawn was super helpful and the vibration is 100% gone, thank you so much!!
