online part store of toyota parts. why does your 2011 need new cv's already? should be covered under warranty unless its operator error.

those arent them, they are about 1500 but they arent listed on their website right now. but this was from a previous member something to keep in mind. Oh and they can be broken still.

A good point was brought up to me after I locked my front end and was looking for a stronger front axle.

Right now my weak point is my front CV axles ($70 part). If I upgrade to bullet proof axles then my weak point will now be my front ring gear ($800 part) plus you can't change a ring gear on the trail, you can change a CV in about an hour.

You can buy a lot of spares for the price of those bullet proof axles. Just something to think about.

Would rather just do a SAS instead of drop that kind of coin on CVs.

stop buying the CV's from Napa, VatoZone, etc etc . they are crap!!. the reason why they are always breaking on you is because they have less movement or less range of movement compared to the stock Toyota CV. so what that means is they are binding a lot sooner when compared to the stock version. and that is why they are breaking.

i know there is a huge price difference between OEM CV's and autopart CV's. but you're gonna have to pony up. only other workable alternative has been mentioned and that would be going with RCV but those will cost you a hundred million dollars compared to OEM. but the nice thing about the RCV's is that should be the last set you'll ever buy

Trust me. I know.

I've been through the whole process of doing one.

I just can't justify that on IFS. Hell, i don't like my IFS. But no way in hell am I gonna drop anywhere near that kinda coin on a 13 year old truck, unless it's a pure trail rig.

Exactly why you use your lifetime warranty.


And I would rather a shaft go than my diff or t case.

Overpriced and under-tough. I know of at least one person that broke one and went back to OEM.

Theoretically. I'd stay with OEM myself.

Doesn't do you one bit of good on the trail, and ruins your day making you get down in the muck to swap a CV axle.

Lemme clarify: You could easily break 4 CVs in a single day of wheeling the way these pieces of shit give up the ghost.

It will, well before the diff or t-case. Especially the t-case. The transfer cases on these Tacomas are essentially the strongest Toyota has ever made.
