Arrow Toyota Rear Full Floating Axle Flanges!

I held off making these items for a year because another vender made them and promised me a fair price when I needed them.

When I needed them his fair price turned out to be about 6 times what they cost to make. It seems he just wanted me out of the market for a year. Well, I guess he got what he wanted but I don't believe in false promises.

So here are the flanges that can turn your rear axle into a Full Floater and they are from Ruffstuff!



This is a weld on Axle Flange to mount Front Toyota Mini, Fj40, or FJ60 spindles to the rear axle. The caliper bosses are made to use the IFS Truck ('86-'95) calipers and FJ40 or FJ60 rotors.

These are 1" thick and made from 44W Plate & cutout for the 3.5" axle tube used our Axle Housings. We will release a 3.25" & 3" version in a couple of weeks. These are $195 a pair, not the $300 price I was quoted from the other vender originally...

This makes a Full Floating rear axle easy, and a disc conversion atthe same time!

Here are some pics installed, they are on one of our 9" housings I am using in the rear of my FJ45 pickup...

Just the flange...


With the spindle...


With the Hub, Rotor, & Caliper...


Its really a pretty simple operation and this is just about all the instructions anyone will need. Of course I am running 31 to 30 spline shafts but they are damned easy...

Here are a couple of questions from another site that help explain these a bit better...

The axle should not really be too much of a concern. It would be great if you could use a used front inner axle but I would say build it to the length you want and don't compromise by building it to an existing part...

You would remove the 4 bolt flange, it isn't used any longer. You would be using double splined axles like front inners.

We install them using a trubar but a simple instalation trick would be to use a long (5') piece of heavy DOM or 3" angle iron and 2 machinist squares. Clamp it about 3" off the faceplate and setup the correct length and then with the machinist squares true them to each other. Pretty simple...

So do you have a standard length that is known to work when puting these on a ifs mini truck rear. Any idea what shafts would run $$ wise?

I won't have that until we have the smaller sizes in and we can make one. The shafts are a little under $200 from Branik Motorsports for 4340 Chromoly...

Here is the finished front axle to go with it, I did not know for sure but I am happy to report that FJ40 and Mini Aisan lockouts are a direct replacement for the fulltime factory stuff! This is an 8" set up with Hellfire Fab's FJ80 Knuckles and High Steer!

We got a ton of calls about the Hellfire Knuckles yesterday. They are the only reasonable way to add the strength of the FJ80 birfield with a good High Steer setup. We are the only distributor besides buying them direct from Billy. I haven't yet advertised them because Billy sold the first 45 pair in about 6 weeks, the next batch should be done in a couple of weeks.

We now have all 3 sizes in stock so you can use these on just about any housing, 3", 3.25", & 3.5" :)

When building a Toyota axle don't leave it as a semi floater with drums :)
