you're going to have to tell me more about them if you're asking for $300

what condition are they in? runable? anything aftermarket? what year are they? gear ratio? do you have driveshafts?

Used condition compleat. 4:10 ratio No aftermarket stuff at all. You going to have to put longfeilds in them any way and arp studs with hysteer arms I have drive shafts but they are prob. not the right lenght for you. You did not say If you wanted cv or single joint.

I have one single joint and a bunch of cv style the only differance on the front axles is the first ones had no guset on the botton and the next gen front axle ant a guset to the ubolts and in 1985 the guset went almost to the end. I have both. The one front that I would sell is a 1983 short guset and the axle has been sand blasted but has some suface rust on it. did you want a pre 86 rear or a 86 or newer rear the pre 86 is 3" narower. I have both. For a toyota axle to hold up you need good gusets anyway more than the factory ones.

I'm not worried about gussets, I can make the housing plenty strong much easier than I can make it wider.

so what ones are closer to 60" wms-wms?

All mini truck fronts are the same width, from ~1978 to 1985. They are usually listed at 55.5" WMS-WMS, but my understanding with many chats with Brian Ellinger at Front Range / Diamond axle is that actually meausre 56.1" or so... splitting hairs there..

They progressively get stronger in the housing, with the 84-85 being the strongest. However, the failure point is commonly just inside from the ball, which is the same strength on all. Basic knuckle gussets welded on eliminate this failure point.

Now, rear axles, 1978-1985 are 55" WMS. 1986+ are 58" WMS. The later axles also have much bigger drum brakes (I think they are 2" x 11").


So a very common setup is to run 1.5" spacers on the front axle and a later wide axle, to get a reasonably wide setup.


If you wan to run discs on the rear, I can show you the brackets on mine, its very simple to make.

I have a set of 4 (maybe 5) rims, steel wagon wheels.

Not prety, (black paint over chrome) but not expensive, $10 each
(but if I have 5 you gotta take all 5, I want them gone)

Let me know, I can snap a few pics if you like.

I have two good Toyota front CV driveshafts as well if that helps you. and a Long WB rear IIRC.
I have various other driveshafts you might be able to use depending on your application, best bet is to come look and see what I have.
