Toyota Axles

I was just wondering what was involved in putting Toyota Axles on my Zuke (86)? I performed a search but came up with very little. I am trying to find out if there is any customization that is required other than probably moving the spring mount points. As well what to use. I have found ppl using 79 P/U axles but unfortunately I have no idea what that means.

Re: Toyota Axles

79-85 toy axles is what are used. the only diff between the axles is this 84-85 axles have a lower gusset that goes from the pig under the ubolt mating area on the axle. 79 sometimes had no gusset at all depending on when the truck was made 80-83 the gusset is identocal to the 84-85 except it stops 1" short frotm the spring area. gears ranged from 3:90 4:37 4:10 4:11 if you find a newer v-6 4cyl toywith the 31" tire pack in the 90ish years you can yank the pig from those an and it will drop into all the older yrs. these have 4:56 gear ratio. Rear pads have to be moved in on the axle. on the front you have to compensate for the difference in height from pad to pad the dr. side needs a 3/8" spacer welded to it. Toyota used a stiffer more arched spring to allow the use off there push pull steering. Also you need to redrill the spring pad about 3/8" inward to comp for the difference in pad width from auk to toy..
