I amt rying to locate someone who can sell me a tai lshaft for my 60 Series Toyota Landcruiser, that is the CARDEN type with the 3 universals. A few years back I lifted it up 4 inches and it would appear I must have extended the front tail shaft slightly on the spines and it has now worn out the front universal joints and a bit wabbly on the spine. So if any one could assist with acquiring a replacement I would be pleased. Some time ago I did see new ones advertised but didnt require one then and dont have the details now.

Thanks in anticipation

Any Driveshaft specialist will build one for you.
You may need wide angle UJs as well.
Yellow Pages are a good start.
If you are in Sydney there is a guy in Narrabeen.

AFAIK all 60 series came out with a double cardan front prop shaft.
A common problem with the double cardan joint is the ball in the middle of the joint wearing out to due mud/water ingress and lack of greasing. This ball cetralise's the joint and once worn the Uni's will start to wear out rapidly.
The Double Cardan should be at the transfer end of the shaft and a single uni at the diff end. The double Cardan can be re-built, but neither a rebuild nor new shaft is cheap. As mentioned, most reputable driveshaft/diff poplaces 'should' be able to help you out.

Never had a 60, 61 or 62 with a factory double cardin joint.
But alot of hiluxes with the rigid front axle had them.
