I'm in Winnipeg for the next 10 days so I'll get it swapped out when i get back.

1stToyota says that the complete driveshafts, both abs and non abs are discontinued :( Guess I'll try some remans and get these old ones rebuilt.

As are '88-'91 V6 Camry. They aren't 100% the same (different Toyota part numbers) but they are 100% compatible.

I wonder if toyota still stock them.

I found some Cardone remans. One in Vancouver, one in Calgary. 170$ each.

All my parts should be here Wednesday. I just bought some SKF/NSK bearings.

Hope it's worth it.

Write, 170 is steep. Local parts new/reman, no more than $75

Yeah, but it's half the cost of new OEM shafts from 1sttoyota, which were discontinued anyway :(

Unfortunately, even the best price I could find for the reman shafts was about 140 including the core charge.

Okay, have my new driveshafts.

How do I remove the ABS ring? I'm not sure what the non-abs shaft looks like so I'm worried about cutting off too much.

Thanks

Will install in a week when I have some time off.

If all that doesn't fix it.....

Good luck!

Why cut it off? Should chisel off anyways.

Parts are in.

Noise is vastly reduced, but it's definitely not gone. :bangshead:

So that was new bearings, hubs, knuckles, and axles.

Had to get an wheel alignment after, and we found that Audi had over torqued damn near everything. So we retorqued the axle nut to the proper BGB spec just incase.

It might be in my head, but after the re-alignment and all that retorquing, the noise got a bit worse.

Could the torque on the axle nut have anything to do with this?

Well,

The new parts have definitely made an improvement overall.

I tried a number of different torque settings on those axle nuts. I found an improvement, albeit small, when torqued between 170 and 180ftlbs.

I then backed it down to 137 ftlbs again, and found it was a bit worse. So back up to 180 it went.

I'll leave it there and start focusing my attention elsewhere. This problem has cost me way too much money and time.

Next I'll try replacing the propshaft with the CF piece. My clutch is also going, so I'll see if a different clutch system helps the noise when I get that replaced.

Thanks all.

In the mean time, if anyone has an idea, feel free to post it up.
