Toyota CV Drive Shaft
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 will not work for any Toyota trucks that have a solid axle swap (SAS). This is also only for vehicles with a drive shaft length of 40" or less. For shafts longer than 40", look here. If you have an SAS or something else that is creating a unique set of problems give us a call for more info.
Because the flanges we use are sometimes slightly thicker than the stock flanges, it is a good idea to get some of our longer bolts.
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

- 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 Spicer joints.

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.
