When you add larger tires to your 95 1/2 - 04 Tacoma you increase the risk of twisting or breaking a rear axle shaft, that's why Trail-Gear has made a forged 4340 chromoly rear axle shaft that allows up to 120 degrees of twist.
When replacing the rear axle shafts, we recommend also installing a Rear Axle Service Kit.
Note: These shafts are for non-ABS axle housings only
Note: Due to the increased strength and toughness of the Longfield Rear Axles, we recommend reusing your stock wheel studs or purchasing new OEM wheel studs on Longfield Rear Axles.
