Rear Yota is Finally in! PICS!

Finally got this thing done. Shortened the right side to offset the diff. Got bigger brakes too. I guess 2.5" in drum size really makes a difference! Need an adjustable valve. Still need to weld on the traction bar mount and paint.

Re: Rear Yota is Finally in! PICS!

Looks good!!!!
Got mine done as well but didn't shorten any thing and YES I do have some viberation but have worked most of it out by moving the entire drive train and moter over to better match the diff and droped it all a little as well. What did you do with the front to match the shortened rear?
I gotta do the same with my rear brakes as well , I get prematuere lock up on the rear when moderat pressure is applied.

Re: Rear Yota is Finally in! PICS!

Larry: I am still using the stock front. The rear is 1/2" wider that the front now. For the brake bias....you could install a smaller wheel cylinder or go for the valve. I have 7/8" cylinders on mine right now. I may try 3/4" or 13/16" next.

This was a 2wd toyota motorhome diff. I took 6" off the right to get the pinion in the right place. This made the diff 2" too short. Then I had Metal Action make me some 1.25" spacers that changed the Yota's 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern to the Zuk's 5 on 5.5 and also made it a little wider than stock.

I did the housing myself and had a Backyard machine shop cut the splines on the axle. He did a killer job...better that stock Cost me $130 for the spacers and $75 for the machine work. I put 4.56's and a Detriot Trutrac in it too.

It helps that I own a drivetrain shop. That keeps the cost down since I do all of this myself

I think I might make a jig to do some more of these, except maybe use an 86+ or Tacoma 4x4 diff, which is like 3-6" wider than the earlier ones. This would give me some room to work with to get the offset right.

Then you guys could run a stock Yota front with my narrowed housing and axleshaft and get rid of vibs! I could even offer a complete package with gears and your choice of locker delivered to your door. I have a feeling SKY will be offering some type of offset Yota soon.

The machinist told me he could make me chromoly 26 spline front axles for $100 a pair and a few bucks more if I want them heat treated. This will be the next step....along with cutting and rotating the front housing for a CV driveshaft and more caster.

For you guys near Portland, Dutchman will cut your housing for around $100 and spline the axle for $50.
