TRD Aurion Drive Shaft


Recommended Posts

Question - I'm experiencing a vibration in the front of the car at 60 to 70km and gets worse over 110km.

I have had new wheels and tries rebalanced twice. Has near new front rotors and pads.

I was unable to find any ball joint or bush unusual wear or movement.

I did however find that the drivers drive shaft has movement directly in and out. As I put pressure inwards and outwards it moves at least 10mm.

The passenger side has no play at all. Can any one confirm if the drivers side should have play due to the two different lengths?

Is the part number the same as a standard Aurion for drive shafts?

Can you still buy Genuine Toyota drive shafts or has anyone experienced after market brand quality?

I would be inclined to check the front wheel bearings. I would also remove the front wheels and do a visual inspection of the suspension and check that all bolts are tightened. Might as well check the pads and rotors as you rotate the wheel hub. I would then be checking both the inner and outer cv joints for any movement. Something else for consideration on the checklist is the wheel alignment.

Either have a CV joint specialist take a look or buy aftermarket. Genuine will probably cost close to $1000(I'm not joking).

From memory they are exactly the same as the same gearbox is used.

I have just checked the drive shafts on my 2008 Aurion Prodigy. With the car on the ground, I have movement in both driveshafts, the same amount which only feels like 1-2mm, so not very much.
