Cons of the bravada shaft and tube?

Recommended Posts

I am talking about the front driveshaft, more specifically the pinion/yoke flange in the t case.

I know. Everyone else in this thread is NOT. They are talking about the bravada axle shaft

Correct, but there was a comment earlier on in this thread where someone else asked about the front driveshaft and since there are a lot of guys on here that did the swap I thought I'd see what everyone has been doing.

I did not change my front driveshaft after the swap and I have no problems. I don't think anyone else has either unless they upgraded to a heavier dutier version. It doesn't really have any affect on the bravada shaft itself.

Yeah, I just wasn't sure if there was any vibration issues since the standard shaft wasn't meant to spin constantly. If it was the bravada and syty shafts would be the same as ours.

 

I'll stick with the stock shaft and see how everything shakes out.

 

Thanks.

I'm running my stock shaft, have been for more than a year, no issues. Real minor vibration at 75 mph, that's it.

I've heard it too, but it's nonsense.

Yea, we've proven that these trucks can hit 75

Heck even without the bravada shaft in yet mine has minor vibrations above 75 doesn't mean I don't push 80 or more on my way to the dunes and I have hit 100 before at that speed everything shakes anyway lol

are there more stress on the CV shafts while turning with this mod?

 

I'm assuming its like having manual locking hubs and never unlocking them correct?

 

do trucks with manual locking hubs require you to unlock the hubs while in 2wd? and if so what is the reasoning behind this?

 

I know most 4wd trucks (including tacomas) have this front axle disconnect system with some kind of collar to connect the axle shafts. the tacoma people say there is more stress on the CV shafts if you are turning with the front axle always engaged.

 

I read something somewhere about needing a AWD transfer case if you have a non disconnected front axle shaft?

 

any thoughts about this anyone?

The pilot bearing. It is in the rear side of the crankshaft. It can be a SOB to get out. I have gotten them out by filling the center with grease and using a bolt the same size as the ID of the bearing and hitting the bolt with a hammer.
