Toyota CV Front Drive Shaft

This will not work for any Toyota trucks that have a solid axle swap (SAS). If you have an (SAS) pleas call us. Or if you have something else that is creating a unique set of problems and need a shaft with abnormally high angle, long slip, or high strength, give us a call for more info. 

This is what you need if your Toyota 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 only for vehicles with a drive shaft length of 40" or less. For shafts longer than 40", look here

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" diameter .120" wall DOM steel tubing. Better quality and thicker 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. 

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

Why didn't I do this sooner?!

I finally got a DC drive shaft for my '97 FZJ80, and man it is so much more pleasant to drive now. I'm running about a 5.5" lift and while I never ran into any issues on the trail with the stock shaft, any time I would be on-road and hit 30-40MPH I would get some bad vibrations and rattles. I guess I had just gotten used to it, because after installing my new Tom Woods DC shaft it is ridiculous how much smoother that ride is now. It shipped out super quick, the quality seems top-notch, and it was a very simple and straight-forward install. Torqued everything down to the factory 54 lbs/ft spec, and it was good to go!

Just as expected. Problem solved and in time will order the rear later. Drives GREAT!!! Thank you guys!!! HIGHLY QUALITY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT!!!! Shipment was on time! I would not waste my time from the ebay (Tatton's Driveshaft) version from my experience. No email on status if my driveshaft is being made and almost two months of me being patient I had to ask for a full refund and Curtis still did not make my order at all! Never again! I thank EVERYONE at Tom Woods for such great quality work!

Great customer service

I called before I ordered because I was uncertain about exactly what I needed. They were very knowledgeable about my 94 Land Cruiser and got me setup with exactly the right front drive shaft. Shipping was fast and the fit was perfect! No more drive train vibration!
