    My rear drive shaft failed. The Cardon CV unit exploded and now I need to replace or repair it.

    Who's making good drive shafts these days? I need one NOW. Toyota wants $1500 for a new one. Whew!

    Thanks

    local driveline shop should be able to fix you up with a cv joint for a lot cheaper. don't think you need a new driveline

    Thanks Mike. Local drive line shop has 1/2 my shaft. Didn't think he needed both pieces - until they have to balance it ... but will be taking the 2nd piece there tomorrow. Hoping for a good fix and cheaper then Toyota.
    Was just wondering if there was something better out there. Easier to get. Hoping to get this back on the road SOON.

    Look at build!
    I had a stock one completely rebuilt and cost $400 but you can have a custom shaft made... Carolina Drivelines is what most around here uses. Im sure they have a website but not sure if they ship but as said a local driveline shop will probably be your best bet...my toyota dealer quoted me 1,000
