Toyota CV axles


Topic starter

I have a 1987 4WD Toyota Van Wagon (cargo), with 244,221 for mileage, with a manual transmission & 2.2 L 4Y engine. I need to replace the CV axles, which the axle units now seem to be obsolete. I can send mine in to rockauto to be rebuilt, but I can't afford to have my van down for that long. So, my question is, "are there any other Toyota models for that year or close to, for instance, like the 4 Runner that I can still get the axles for, that the inner and outer joints could be swapped from those axles to my axles. Would the joints themselves be interchangeable?" Thanks, Harvey

Take the exact measurements: length, diameter, spline count etc. and then go to the parts store.

Buy the shop keeper a box of donuts, and then maybe he can pull a whole bunch of them out for you to measure, and maybe you'll find a match. CV axles aren't THAT complex.
