how long is a yota shaft

front drive shaft , I'm interest in both solid and IFS front shafts
I need a longer front shaft I know rockrat makes adapters for toy shafts so I think this route may work for me.
my second question is what size u joints do yota shafts use?
I'd just go to a salvage yard and take a tape out but i'm stationed on an island in AK and the one yard here doesn't have any yota's at the moment.
btw any one have one for sale

You said you where LOOKING for a yota? There's a nice clean one for sale near me, but I'm in Kent, OH! Little far for a truck. Looks real clean, wooden bed that's dobe pretty nice, and a solid front. Not sure of the year, but I'd guess early-mid 80's.

Yag has all the specs (with lengths) on tow=y shafts posted in one of the FAQ sections.

There is are several different ones.
The one I found I think was from an 85 xtra cab, but not sure because it was laying in the bed of the truck with a ton of other misc. toy parts.
It was a bolt in with CJ front springs in the rear.

EDIT: I looked but the lengths weren't posted. Here is what Rockcrawler posted in the thread - you should read the toy axle FAQ thread, there is info you can use there.


CV Driveshaft mod

While everyone looking for Toy CV driveshafts knows the 84-85 are the hot ticket, the later model IFS front CV shafts are cheap & easy to find, but because they dont have the same operating angle requirements as the solid axle counterparts, you need to do a relatively simple mod to gain the extra degrees of operating angle to make tham work in the Zuk application. I decided to go this route for my Toy axle conversion I am currently stockpiling parts for mainly because a buddy had a couple he was tossing in the trash because he didnt know about this mod.. and they were FREE! 4x4wire did a nice write up on the mod, check it out here & save yourself a bunch of $$$

"I need a longer front shaft"


Pardon me if I'm reading all this wrong, but you are wanting a longer shaft for the front of your Sammy, right?


It looks like everybody is thinking you wanted to do the "usual" front Toy shaft put in the rear of a Sammy.

The 1985 front Toy CV shaft that I got is *exactly* the same fully collapsed length as a stock Samy rear shaft, and about 2" longer when extended.

It is nowhere near as long as a stock sammy front shaft, obviously. Most people then get a *rear* Toy shaft and then have it cut down to size for use in the front of a Sammy.

Go get a toy shaft and have it cut down to fit.
I can get a normal CV shaft shortened for about $40.
Lengthening depends on the shaft and how long.
