If you are looking for the ultimate Tacoma rear axle then this is it!
We start out using a new, fabricated, full floating housing from Speedway Engineering. First the center section is formed to accept a Ford 9" third member and then uses 3" x .250" wall cromoly tubes that are welded on inside and out. Speedway also welds in their 2.5" snout ends to accept their machined aluminum hub bodied.
Our .120" cromoly laser cut and formed truss is then welded on to give the housing superior strength. We designed the truss to completely wrap the axle tubes which enables it to be a full 3" deep, this isn's simply a "rear truss". We notch the truss out to accept the U bolts and spring perches. When we notch the truss its then plated back in with .120" cromoly to completely seal it up. We also run the truss all the way out to the caliper mount brackets which greatly strengthens the mounts and ensures the brake pads stay true to the rotors.
All of our housing kits come complete with Speedway 2.5" billet aluminum hubs, billet rotor adapters, 35 spline drive plates, 35 spline axles, billet center caps, all necessary bearings, seals, hardware, 5/8" long wheel studs, lug nuts and spindle nuts.
For brakes we use Wilwood 4 piston SuperLite 1.25" calipers with Wilwood 12.1" x 1.25" rotors and pads. We also include 8" flex -3AN brake line whips from Crown Performance and weld on the -3AN bulk head tabs.
We top it all off with a 2.5" billet fill/inspection cap up top and a drain plug on the bottom making fluid changes a breeze.
The housings are built with a 69" WMS (factory is 65")
If you are planning to 4 link your truck we can completely tab out the housing using the JD Fab 4 link kit that is designed specifically for the Speedway housing.
Please note this axle will eliminate your rear speed sensors and ABS. To retain your speedometer you can either wire the rear sensors in with the front or on 4wd models you can tap into the transfer case and add a factory Toyota speed sensor. We are not responsible for these modifications and advise you to do your research beforehand.
