Toy driveshafts on an 88 Sami????

Hey guys...I don't post in this group because I own a Jeep but a buddy owns an 88 Sami and this board has always been invaluable.

Here's the scoop: 88 Sami, SPOA, stock drivetrain, 29" Thornbird's, and gobs o' wheel travel.

He has some vibration from the steep ujoint angles on the front driveshaft at the TX case. He has heard that Toy shafts could be used and have a double cardan joint (CV) on one end. Will this work? Which end fits which? What years? Any mods to the shafts?

Any advice will be appreciated!!!

Re: Toy driveshafts on an 88 Sami????

toy shafts do bolt up to a sammi. im puttin 79 toy axles under my zuk and the driveshafts bolt up. i am goin to use an ifs front driveshaft for the rear axle. the driveshafts i have are 79 and do have the end your talkin bout. although i haven't heard of anyone on this board using them to cancel driveline vibes. most people have spacers or rotate the shaft to cancel them with that lift.

build it, break it, then build it better.

Re: Toy driveshafts on an 88 Sami????

gotzook and I are doing the same lift and all, and I have to agree with him! I'm useing 86 toy axles f&r and going to use the front drive shaft from the Toy and put it on the rear! It also has the CV style shaft and should help out a bit, but like gotzook was saying get some spacers or a new longer shaft.

If I use the front toy shaft in the rear...what do I use in the front? the toy rear? or another toy front?

No, just get drive line spacers, or fix the problem and get a longer drive shaft. Just my .02

Keeo in mind that even though the new (larger) flange driveshaft spacer holes do line up perfectly with the bolt pattern of the Toyota driveshafts, you still would have to machine the ID of the Toy mounting flange to fit the machined lip on the Zuk driveshaft spacers.

So... it ain't exactly a direct bolton, but darn pretty close. Just a bit of modification is needed to the mounting flange (length is an addressable issue as well).
