I've had an eye on this forum for years, sometimes longingly reading the back and forth and now, as luck would have it, I have joined the joyous (and painful?) ranks of 60 series owners. Recently purchased one in fairly decent shape -- did my homework and asked the right questions...
Hey Mudders, I've got a problem. The universal joint on my 80 is cracked, and I need a shop to replace and balance it. I usually take my money to ACC, but with them usually being booked for months out and a little farther away I wanted to reach out to the locals and see if y'all had any...
I have a spare driveshaft that I do not need and is up for sale. It is for an 84 and below FJ 60. The driveshaft measures from tip to approximately middle of u-joint, 40 1/4 inches.
I do not have the flanges on either end nor the u-joints.
$75 plus shipping cost.
I'm doing an h55f swap on my fj60 so i can have one of the few BOSS 2FE h55F Fj60's :cool:, i have the rear drive shaft already, preferably good ujoints, slip joint has to be good of course. and if anyone happens to have a vacuum 4wd shifting solenoid ill take that too for the right price.
Which is more important the "phasing" of the driveshaft yokes? or the "phasing" of the driveshaft flanges? Sorry to ask again, but the FSM isnt showing the DC driveshaft and the mounting bolts for the transfer case are very difficult to get to with the IP skid in place.

60 series front and rear (except pre-85 with double cardan joint, only 1...
My current option I'm looking at are either a Tatton DC shaft, Tom Woods or a Tacoma DC shaft. I'm leaning toward sourcing a used tacoma rear shaft and having it shortened if I can find a good used core and it's not too expensive.
From my search, it sounds like 31 inches from end of...
I am replacing the ujoints on my 1972 3spd fj40 and I noticed some issues with the slip yoke:
1. The felt seal on the slip yoke cover was ripped in half and barely hanging on. Looks like these felt seals are no longer available.
2.The "welch plug" that covers the interior of the slip yoke is...
Thought I would post a few pics of how I am storing my spare drive shafts on the frame under the 80. Trying to keep as much usable space inside the truck as possible. Found some ubolts at the hardware store and added a few large hose clamps for redundancy. Rear is strapped under the 4x4 labs...
Pulled my rear driveshaft tonight with the intent to bring it into the driveline shop tomm to have it sleeved to a thicker wall tube. I am wondering what size other people have used?
My truck is definitely not a crazy rock crawler but I do get into the rocks usually and want to thicken the...
I want to paint the driveshafts for the 79 FJ40 I’m restoring. The task will be much easier if I can use carb or brake cleaner to remove the years of old grease and crud that has accumulated over the years especially around the u-joints.
I don’t plan to actually disassemble the u-joints.
I have a 1996 80 series, 115k miles, lockers. I bought the truck a few months ago and added a OME 2.5'' lift kit with caster correction kit & 1'' Manofre Spacer in front. I had a shop install the lift. immediately after lift install I was getting the GRRRR sound while accelerating/decelerating...
I bought this for my truck but it doesnt solve my slight vibration. The axle end has new Toyota u-joint. The xcase end u-joints move smoothly. The driveshaft is balanced. I'll take some pictures when I get home today. I'm located in Santa Ana by 5 fwy and Irvine Ave.
I have some Mobil1 grease in my gun, and was about to use it on my drive shaft when I change the oil this week, but seem to recall reading somewhere that it calls for something different. Any input? I have always used the same synthetic grease to lube everything, but don't want to just go to...
