    Alright well i broke my drive shaft the other day at the track. its 2006 access cab V6 4x4 M/T... rear drive shaft that is, it snapped right where the two spip together at the middle u-joint. On the forward shaft there is a male end poking out of the back with splines on it that slips into the female splines on the yolk.. has this ever happened to anyone or does anyone know where i can get a forward driveshaft only, not the entire two peice??? and no the warrenty wont cover it. they had an inspector come out and saw that the tires had alot of wear and that their was rubber shavings up in the wheel well that i thought i wiped off.... any help will be greatly appreciated.. either a new one of some one with a wrecked truck looking to sell that forward peice of the rear driveshaft

    Any local drive shaft shop should be able to make you one for a couple hundred bucks.

    What are you saying? The U-joint exploded?? Or...??

    Tell us exactly what broke..... because when you say the driveshaft broke, could mean many things and many different scenarios of how to fix it. I can't tell from what you've told us.
    Got any pictures?

    alright on the forward half of the drive shaft, there is a smaller shaft that extends twords the rear, going right through the carrier bearing into the yolk on the front of the rear half. with splines on it, that fit into the splines in the yolk. not the big part of the drive shaft.. most people wont know what it looks like until you break one or have ever seperated it. but i have called around and no one will make one. and buying it from toyota is 1200 bucks.. all i need is the forward half. i have pics but they are on my phone. just really needing to know if there is somewhere other than toyota i can purchase one from, the front half only that is.. have talked to machine shops and they say they cant weld it back together

    I have my stock driveshaft sitting around that I can sell you. I have a 07 TRD Offroad access cab, so it should fit if you want it. Ive had it listed for $400 + shipping for like 3 years now haha

    it broke right where the splines start, its all part of the forward half. just kindof reduces down from the big shaft to this little solid one that fits into the yolk on the rear half.

    The part that broke, was it the MALE or FEMALE end of the slip yoke?

    Did it break at any weld points? Did the shaft itself break though (male) part?

    Did the splines rip off?

    Your truck is an 06 - are you still within the driveline warrantee? It might be 6 years/100k miles for all drivetrain components. If you're still under warrantee, then you know what to do.

    If you're not under warrantee, start searching for used driveshafts on ebay, craigslist, junkyards, etc.
