Well we do have proof it never existed. A different axle made by Toyota would have had parts available from Toyota and they don't exist. All axle parts from 1985 match the same part numbers from 1984.

Sorry for the delay. Getting our house ready to sell and moving to Oregon at the same time.

Thanks! Everyone OK with replacing the existing Axle Facts with Derek's?

Yes I think that would be a good idea. People are still getting wrong information and thinking there's some miracle axle out there that they don't have to replace. I have done extensive searches of Toyota parts data bases and there would have been parts or some indication that it was made on Toyota manufacturers site and it just doesn't exist. Even Tika who helped write these first axle facts pages finally agreed but never made the changes on the toyota-campers site. Thank you

That was just a 1st quickie mark-up, as much to figure out how to use my Pdf program (Foxit). I even did a slightly different v. 2a.

I'd appreciate it if others would suggest other corrections that could be added before making it 'Official'. Let's try and get it a 'right' as we can. :)

Hi guys 

Got a 21 ft sunrader with the death axle 5 bolt just put new tires on it. Driving across USA. In Florida right now . Got an axle on order from AutoZone. Need to  know if I can get a floater axle between here and Calafornia. The original axle has got 300 thousand on it. Bearing cutting into shaft. Sorry for the long story. I will also need a good shop to install it. Thanks for any help. Robert

Forget AutoZone, It's the wrong axle shaft. You have a GO82 axle (8"). They no longer make these axle shafts and nobody has them.

If you got 300K and bearing issues, your an accident waiting to happen. I wouldn't drive another foot with your current axle. Try to find someone local to do an axle swap. Your looking at $2-4K for the work. If your close enough to home, have your rig TOWED there.

If you find a yard for your axle, ask if they will install for you (if close enough to your location). This will save shipping charges and provide a source of supplemental parts if needed. Good luck.

HI guys found it and getting it delivered to new Port Richie $875 and if no problems $400 to $600 installed. Arrives Wednesday. I think there will be extras brakes bearing maybe. Tires are questionable.  Hope it bolts in. Let you know more when it gets here.

now you will also want to get the 1 ton front hubs and another 2 wheels like those on your axle so that you only need to carry one spare tire.

conversely you could get a very expensive lug adpator or carry just a tire and tire spoons along with starter spray to set the bead but that method is for the very strong willed.

Thanks but one nightmare at a time. Reminds me of my 4x4 days. I carry tire plugs for now.

finally someone else that isn't afraid to use Butyl patch kit. I keep one in every truck I own on the hopes my flat will be a nail or puncture wound thats easy to use the kit on. Its the tire explodes and shreds ones that the spare is truley for.... in which case.. you are still back to the scenerio. Blow outs like that occur on duallies far more on the rears I am told as the nail makes one lose air then they are rubbing together which if unnoticed leads to the walls blowing out.

Used 11 plugs once in one hole to get me to a shop. Not for the faint at heart. 

Going to shop now to see if axle arrived

This is a Land Cruiser axle but looks almost the same. Big difference is the lug pattern. ours are 6x 7.25. Very big spacing. See the big fat hub that comes out in the middle. That's what your looking for. Regular 4x4 Toyota's have 6 lugs but no big hub in the middle of the rear wheel and smaller lug nut pattern
