W58 - mk3 NA 5spd front, cressida back

R154 - I think you can use the whole stock cressida shaft

i called up driveshaftshop.com and talked to them, gave my measurements and got a shaft made and delivered fast for not too much coin, and incredibly, it's actually balanced.

I'm just gonna go with Driveshaft Shop and get a single piece. I was gonna go with the hybrid stock 2 piece but i ended up doing custom mounts and its off a little bit now. i'd rather go with a single piece should give it some more gusto.

close....

 

 

w58= N/A supra front half + cressida center bearing + rear half

R154= Turbo supra front half + cressida center bearing + rear half

 

 

 

 

other ideas:

#1... R154= extend cressida front half by 2" (the spine count and diameter of the auto matches the R154) <-- did this, works fine

#2... have a solid driveshaft made using all cressida stuff

What's the difference between using a cressida center bearing and a supra center bearing?

 

The supra and cressida center bearing mount up in different ways, the supra one puts the drive shaft at an awkward angle.

i used the supra center bearing with spacers and longer high grade bolts... works perfect and is straight.

Anyone simply install the R154 with stock MX83 driveshaft, I read that people have done it and it works abeit I suppose they are only getting 1/2 the spline engagement that was intended...

Kyle,

 

Let him install the short driveshaft.

It will fail at speed, and he won't ask such retarded questions any more,

because he will be dead !

 

Driveshaft .5" too short, probably get away with it.

Driveshaft 2" too short (like his dick) - FAIL !
