hilux one piece tailshaft

Unread post by 4x4 ewok » January 24th, 2009, 3:35 pm

The center bearing in my 106 is shagged and I am trying to decide which path to go down. Replace the bearing or replace the tailshaft with a one piece.
I have done quite a bit of searching on the subject both on here and outers, and there seems to be a fairly even spread fore and against. However most of these posts are a few years old so I am looking for peoples more recent opinions.

Just for a bit info it is standard height at the moment but I am going to being putting a 2in. lift in her in the not to far distant future. I am also tossing up the idear of a body lift as well but haven't decided on that one yet.

At the momentI am leaning towards going the one piece.

For those of you who have gone down the one piece option, have you just had a whole new shaft made, modified the existing one or modifed a tailshaft out of another vehicle.

cheers

Be interesting to hear the replies. Done 3 or 4 centre bearings in about 2yrs now. Last one is a Toyota original but its not going much better.

I have had my 1982 RN46 model Hilux (with a straight through drive shaft) since 1996 and except for having to get the shaft straightened, I have had no problems yet:)

sorry to bring up old thread; but what shaft did you use to replace it? Or was it a custom shaft made? (I am having the same issue after 2" lift)
