View Full Version : Picking up a parts truck

11-24-2008, 05:59 PM
Im picking up a parts truck, all that is left is the entire driveline. I believe it is a 1990 pickup with the 3.0. I have a 1990 3.0 4runner.

Will all of the driveline parts work in my runner? Are the rear leafs a direct bolt-in for my runner? All I want from it is front suspension components, front spindals, engine/trans/t-case and i'll prolly grab the diffs. Would diff gearing be the same or different?? Is there anything that wont work...????

i'm not gonna be able to answer all of that but will try to help with what i know [cheers]
the front suspension, spindles, engine, trans n t case should all be interchangeable. the rear driveshaft may be different length depending on whether the p/u is extra-cab, long box etc and the rear diff may be different as well because some are wide-track, some weren't

hope this helps

4 runner's have coil spring rear ends. pick ups have leaf spring. front end should all be the same.
