Default Calling Toyota Gearheads

As luck would have it our beloved 4Runner now has a broken rear end.

Click image for larger version

Name:	brokenrear.jpg
Views:	59

ID:	62789

It's an 8" V6 4:10 gear with speed / ABS sensor on top off a California Runner.
Toyota number G294

I have searched the local junk yards, craigslist and called every known import dealer in a trip county area and no one has what we need. We found one in Wisconsin off eBay, just I always have my doubts with eBay. Anyone know of a place that might have what we need or possible an overhaul kit with 4 bearings & shims, ring & pinion set?

Default 4-Runner forums

Your 4Runner, like my erstwhile Landcruiser, has about a bazillion enthusiasts on yahoo groups and various independent forums. They're going to have info and probably a lot of expertise. They can be hairy to navigate and find what you want, but give it a shot.

Here's one: https://www.toyota-4runner.org

For more, search "4 runner diff 3rd axle repair replace rebuild used buy sell interchange".
Some people seem happ about buying an entire used read axle with 100k miles or more, if/when they find one.

Hope this helps.

There's hope:

Gotchas: Some 2nd Generation V6 4-Runners w/G294 axle shipped with the 2-pinion 3rd member designed for the 4-cyl 4-Runner. Yours is supposed to be 4-pinion, stronger case too. Mebbe worth looking at:

Thanks, see I knew you guys were amazing. And I am, of course, a member of the 4Runners.com forum and have an entire re-build thread on there. You guys are just so darned dependable and amazing, I figured I'd ask here too.
I know it's not Bluebird related, but it is the toad to our Bluebird so....

Guess I'm shopping for a rear today. Gee retirement is fun. lol
