I blew a u joint on my samuri today. It also messed up the driveshaft, the problem is there are no samuri's in the junkyards. So, my question is, are the tracker/sidekick rear driveshafts the same? Please help, I need to fix it ASAP.

Thanks in advance, Will

Re: HELP!!!

If you have an early model ZUK you can adapt a toyota driveshaft to work, then you get a longer shaft, more U joint movement for up and down travel, and a larger shaft and U joint. Only negative part is you will have to have your flanges machined to take a few thousandths of an inch off them to get perfect fit. Well worth the time and effort.

Re: HELP!!!

The tracker/sidekick drivelines are only flanged on one end. Go to (NOT look up rear driveshafts. there are about 200 of them listed, most for between $50-100.

Re: HELP!!!

call petroworks or Hawk they will have good used ones they can ship. Oh yea Dave from asian autoparts of arizona
too... The drive shaft is that bad? If they are just a little munged up you can file it up and re-use ....
