    Long story short, my drive shaft bolts got twisted when my rear end locked up on the freeway.

    What I need are the bolts that connect the drive shaft to the transfer case. They are fancy and splined, unlike the differential bolts which just have the little collar.

    Toyota said they cant sell just the bolts for the transfer case, just the entire flanged bolts already pressed in. I tried to use the same bolts for the diff on the transfer flange but they are on the tight side. Im also worried if I pound em in, the splines on the flange will scrape off from the bolt and get caught preventing me from properly seating the shaft flange to the transfer case flange.

    Does anybody know where I can get the proper bolts from? Or if I hammer in the bolts I can get away with it? Id rather order parts in Canada because I get hammered every time by customs. Dont feel like paying 40 bucks on top of 20 bucks of bolts.

    Ive also already called a bunch of wrecking yards in Ontario, with no luck on salvageable bolts or flanges.

    Any and all help appreciated guys, thanks in advance.

    Well, I think i'll end up just hammering in the collared bolts, rather then hunt down a whole new flange. Easier, cheaper, and should work fine considering that A- ive driven 9 months with only 3 bolts in it and B- the transfer case will be replaced this spring when i do my re gear. I want a good gear driven twin stick case... not a fan of electronic shift
