Well...it won't be a direct bolt in fit. Yer gonna have to do some cutting and welding to make it fit. It's also about 6" shorter... :(

the axles themselves are fine, as I've driven about 300 miles before I realized the disconnected brake line, but the part I'd be getting is the casing for the axles and everything. I'll be keeping the hubs, differential, ect. would this still work?

Nope...the only 1 fer 1 swap would be another T-100 4WD rear axle. You can make the 2WD work but yer better off gitting the 4WD one... ;)

Have you checked www.car-part.com and see what's near you?

I'm guessing from the description of yer rear...yer gonna need new springs. ;)

Snap some piccies and post them up fer us. :D

Do you have ABS or not?

Using a 1998 T-100, here's what's listed fer the 4WD rear axle on car-part.com
6 cyl, 4x4, w/o ABS; 3.91 ratio
6 cyl, 4x4, w/o ABS; 4.10 ratio
6 cyl, 4x4, w/o ABS; 4.30 ratio
6 cyl, 4x4, ABS, 3.91 ratio
6 cyl, 4x4, ABS, 4.30 ratio
6 cyl, 4x4, ABS, 4.10 ratio

I think the spring mounts are in a different spot as car-part doesn't list anything in that arena when I pull up the specifics. :(

However...I did find this in Maryland....fer no ABS and 4.10... :D

It shouldn't matter fer the ratio as yer current third member should still be good, yes? ;)

You can contact these sellers and see how much shipping would be from their place to yer place... :D

You could always have the diff and axles re-sealed. Is there a hole in the metal itself? maybe your driveshaft is bent and it wore out the diff seal...maybe all you need is a drifeshaft and new seals in the axle?

You may be able to repair it without replacing entire axle assemblies, and I think the diff housing can be reset to align properly. Were you in an accident?

Oh and the manuals had 3.91s, 4.10s, and maybe a few others.

Something else to consider...the breather on the differential may be clogged. As pressure builds up in the axle, it has no where to go so it pushes the gear oil out through the axle seals.

I think yer leaf pack went through some severe axle wrap and they are probably dorked up now. Does yer leaf packs look something like this?


If so, you may need to replace yer leaf packs springs. This is a listing of the 3 pack leaf springs fer the 4WD T-100...in Maryland. ;)

Something else you might want to consider is installing the new Roadmaster Active Suspension (RAS). I think the new version can be installed without taking the leaf pack apart now vs what I had to do fer mine. This is my writeup of my install of my RAS... ;)

ive got some pictures and the leaf packs are fine, however there is a rather large crack right below the passenger side leaf mounts on the back of the axle and in the front you can see where it indents.

The crack on the spring perch can be welded. Others have done that before...it seems to happen more on the 4WD axle than it does on the 2WD axle.

Looking at the left spring pack..it's dorked. Really. I'm gonna guess the right side is the same or worse. They should be bowed and NOT "S" shaped. :(

Agreed. The axle should be at the bottom of the leaf spring arch...looks like your springs go up at the axle...that's not right if I am seeign that correctly. I have to agree with Bam on the springs...those may shot. get those replaced, seal the axle and maybe all is well.

I doubt the Taco springs work, but you can always measure them to double check. Use the car-part site Bam suggested or go to your local salavage yard if they have any T100s and pull the old springs. As for the welding, take it to a local shop you trust...looks like a small weld...they can probably do it for cheap. :thumbsup:

No...the Tacoma springs won't work.

I meant to say that the springs should NOT be "S" shaped... :D

You can see if there's a welding shop near you that can help you out. See if there's anyone in TTORA in yer area that can help you out. ;)

so i drove it up to the shop that had an axle, but it wouldnt fit like you guys said and they wanted 1500 to get a new axle for me.they said my springs were fine, but i just needed a new axle housing. since that was way out of my budget, i drove it home. about 5 miles from my house the u joint exploded and my driveshaft came loose, so after a few hours of ranting and cussing, i had the idea that since i have 4wd, i could just support the driveshaft and drive home with 4wd on so that it was like front wheel drive. after about 100 feet, the driveshaft kept clunking around everywhere, so i took it off. so now my question is: is this safe to drive around on for until i have enough money for a new rear axle or to at least weld the old one back together? what can i do about the rear brake lines, as they aren't connected? thank you for all the help

Yes...you can drive around in "front wheel drive" mode... ;)

The only concern I would have is that you lose too much gear oil from the rear axle and lock up the back end. I don't see how the shop told you the springs are fine...that's what keeps yer rear axle from turning up like it did...unless the rear axle housing is really that bad. :(

BTW...have you been greasing up the driveshaft like yer supposed to? I believe the 4WD rear driveshaft is meant to extend/contract vs the 2WD rear driveshaft which is a solid piece.

Are the rear brakes blocked off or capped? How is the fluid not escaping? ;)
