I've got a bent axle shaft on the passenger rear :mad:

Noticed the seals were leaking so I pulled the shaft out to replace - runout was about .035" vs Toyota spec of 0.007". Since the truck was shaking pretty bad & leaking, the bent shaft seemed to explain everything.

My machine shop friend said he could straighten it out - he got the runout down to 0.001 by bending the shaft in the middle to straighten out the end.

Reinstalled with the new seals, the seals are still leaking and the truck is as bouncy as ever - do you think the tube is bent too? I'm worried that if I just replace the shaft I'll still have the problem.

What would you recommend??? :eek:

your gonna have to pull both axles and 3rd and get a long rod that you know is dead straight and put it through there and see if the housing is bent,these axles are becoming notorious for bending, and crushing at the spring perch area,so it's a good possibility it is bent depending on how hard you drive it
