If it has the four bolts that have a flange piece on it also then its just a unbolt and pull one.another sign of the unbolt/pull type is there is no removable cover on the back of the diff. i never undo nothing but the 4 bolts. i leave twn in but real loose so when i yank on the axle it wont break nothing when it cuts loose all of a sudden.

Bent rear axle on a 2006 toyota corolla

you need to google "auto recyclers" and/or "junkyards" in your area. Most of the larger ones now have searchable online inventories. You need to buy a straight rear axle out of a wrecked Toyota, and pay someone to install it. That will save you hundreds over a dealer, but it will not be cheap.

The car will have to be aligned when it is done, so have a shop do it which also does alignments.

I have a vibration on my 2002 Toyota Corolla which is causing the rear tires to wear out prematurely

It sounds like worn out wheel bearings. It could also be combined with separated treads on the tires. If you have backed into a curb and thrown the rear end out of alignment you may have to go to frame shop to correct the problem. If the rear axle is actually bent you may have to replace the axle(no way to realign a bend).

I have 96 chevy silverado extended cab with a vibrationfrom the differential. I found a 2000 gmc Envoy rear end 5 lug. will this bolt up?

Most vibrations are driveshaft being bent,worn u-joint,in need of balance,shocks,wheels,tires and more.I will bet ,swapping the complete rear axle will not change a thing. If it is lifted, you should know your in for problems. If not, and all else fails,strip the rear housing and go through it. The one you swap, may be more worn than yours and not even a good core to rebuild.

1997 toyota landcruiser colorado rear axle oil leak, oil is leaking from the axle casing into the handbrake drum on the nearside rear.

You need to have your seal replaced. I would recommend installing new bearing while you're at it. Check here:

Bent right rear RH axle 2001 prerunner 2wd.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let me assist you as follows:
Removing the rear axle shaft is realy quite easy.
Her is what you need to do:

Remove the wheel/tire.
Remove the rear brake drum.
Remove the brake line to the rear wheel cylinder and plug the line.
Remove the park brake cable.
Remove the entire rear backing plate assembly; no need to remove the rear shoes.
When the backing plate is off, the axle shaft slides out of the axle housing; there are no "C" clips to remove, like on a Chevrolet. The axle is not held at the differential in any fashion.
Note that if you replace the axle shaft, you will need a machine shop to press the wheel bearings & seals onto the new shaft.

If you have any further questions; please feel free to respond.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance; the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my instructions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Toyota T100 doglegs

Hi there ... there are a couple causes for this other than a bent frame. Check your rear springs carefully for a broken one ( normally around the shackle area on either end of the springs). Also check your U bollts that hold the spring to the axle They may have come loose and the axle has shifted. Check the other side of the truck and see how that tire is. if it's where it should be then you might have something going on in the differential ( C clip could have dropped or something let go).

Hope this helps you out

I cannot re-install the rear axle shaft on a !((# toyota four runner Sr5 as the shaft will not fully enter the differential.Do i need to open the differential to get a better look at the problem.Any...

Ok one inch is a lot.I'm thinking damaged spline or bent axle,not sure on how you removed the old bearing,Did you do both sides and mix up the axles and put the left on the right and the right on the left.Try to put the axle in to the point to where the axle just starts to spin with the drive shaft and see how much further it goes in.Maybe you have a bad carrier bearing causing the carrier to be slightly out of alignment.I have seen a few chevy trucks with limited slip differential that the axle had to be tapped in with a hammer (very soft hit).Should slide right in though.I don't know what else to tell you it is pretty straight foward.Did you drain the fluid out of the rear and was it clean or any chunks on the drainplug magnet.Let me know what happened and if you need any more help
