I have an 83 toy with a shot rear third. What I want to do is put a V-6 rear in it. Would it be better to swap out the whole thing or just the third? If I can find anything in Kentucky.
Also what year V-6s will swap into the 83 axle?

all 8" toyota thirds are interchange able ... going '86-94(IIRC) are 3" wider than the axle you have now. youll need to widen the front end though to match the rear ... wheel spacers are one way and there are a few others if you look around. v6 and 4cyl turbo thirds look different than the 4cyl third you have now ...

heres a pic of a v6 third

going with just a new 3rd would be the easiest way to go.

86-95 axle will be 3 inches wider than you front and 96 to present will be 5 inches wider.

88 was the first year of the v6, so that would be a good place to start. Anything with a v6 from then on has the v6 diff. also the 86 and 87 turbos have the same diff....
