Um last time I checked the drive shaft was a round tube and it did not care what it was connected too
so if the need to spend 400 on one thats cool.

The local driveshaft shops charge a hell of a lot more for import driveshafts than common stuff. Don't know why.

What's the diameter of the axles?
And who needs 4.10? Going to Bonneville?

Or does nobody understand how short gearing in the 4.88 to 5.15 range works?[/quote]

John, I've never taken the axle shaft out of the tubes, so I don't know for sure. The Cressida that axle came out of also came with a 4.30:1. Everyone else was talking about 3-ish : 1 gearing, that's what I would call Bonneville.

No idea why they were talking all that crazy talk.
Even in the desert I'd think about 105-110 mph would be plenty for most old thangs with rubber tie rods and al dente spaghetti for sterring and no castor worth mentioning.
And for 110, 4.88 sounds fine.

I know don't let them fuck with you all you want is something that can go to 1310 and about every light
car or truck you can find a flange to 1310 and if you have a stock shaft get it shorten and it has 1350 or
about anything else in us sizes theres conversion joints for under 20 bucks.

you ever need to find a part for wired stuff call me john many others or post up and some one knows
where to get the part for a good price.

awesome toyota axle info there.

i like to find them from 4 runners with the 4 links. mainly because they were less likely to be wheeled hard. i bought some older leaf springed ones that were bent, but didn't find out until i got them home.

i replaced my mazda 7" with one. made a simple jig on the table, chopped off old mazda brackets and welded them on to the toyota.

depending on the width you need, there are some 5 lug 2wd trucks out there with the 8" center section. they were behind the v6 2wds.

i ended up being stuck with the wider 4x4 one because my brackets wouldn't fit the narrower one.

that left me having to have my axles redrilled and machined.

after much searching and calling, i blew JVL guesstament of what it was going to cost out of the water.

$165, for redrilled and fully machined to the rotor of your liking. i showed up with 2 bare axles, a rotor i wanted to use, a hand full of wheel studs and couple days later they were all done.

oh hell here's some more rear end porn. winking smiley






this is the wider 4x4 axle in a 1st gen rx7. might do some light fender rolling, but it really actually fits quite nicely

So I need to hunt down a V6 two-by. Got it. I'm not terribly worried about the brackets since I have to make my own anyway. I run a 3-link and a Panhard and I don't see much reason to stop now.

People don't really 'wheel around here, so anything truck-wise pretty much dies of boredom.

Although given that I have those nice high compression VW pistons and I just won an eBay auction for some high-zoot dual Weber manifold for an 8v VW, I probably won't be making rearend-killing 13B torque for too much longer. Well, when I have a running engine, anyway.

yeah it's a good place to start because so many get parted out. that first 3.0 v6 toyota had was pretty much crap. they pretty much blow when you look at them wrong. the one i got was from a 92, i think with the generation change came the 4 link (i think) in the 4 runner in about 89-90 to 95. i know the older ones were leaf springs.

and like JVL said, depending on options you can find up to 4.88 factory. i got mine from an auto and ended up with 4.30, which should work good for what i'm doing.

one more reason to get the v6 third members was the side bearings were larger and because of that you can do a supra LSD swap pretty easy. the 4cyl and v6 both fit in any 8" housing too, just as an fyi.

The (best) one I threw together this year was good for something like 170ft-lb peak, and it was a very, very broad torque curve. Max power was about 200hp at 6800. Awesome rallycross motor.
