I was replacing the bad -joints on the rear drive shaft dc & when I was pressing the u-joint in the dc cracked. Any recommendations as to where find a replacement? or can I just weld this one? Truck is a 92 22re, 5sp extended cab

Those are cast pieces, so I’m not sure how easy they would be to weld. Probably pretty contaminated with oil and grease too, which would compound the tricky nature of trying to repair it.

89-94 4Runeers, Xcab and long bed I’ve seen have DC front and rear. I think short beds do also but it’s been a long time since I’ve been under one. My 85 xcab did too. I haven’t been under enough 84-89’s lately to say for sure but I think they all have rear DC at least from what I recall.
DC’s are $65 at upull they charge for the whole shaft, shafts are almost always bent from forklift

'85 Xcab SB 22RE Auto- one piece rear DS w/ no CV, Front w/ CV
'88 Rnnr V6 Auto- one piece rear w/ no CV, Front w/ CV

I wouldn't weld that, you'll never get it right. Where did you get the kit to rebuild the DC I've been trying to source the parts. Are you sure the U joints weren't too big?
