5-speed and auto SC300 REAR driveshafts are identical. It's the FRONT piece that's different.

thanks gerb and iam an old man myself.

so my problem Is my driveshaft is too long. like by an inch-2 inches. when I drive backup or reverse the front of the driveshaft grinds on the back of the tranny housing(w58) for just a second. always happens at a dead stop, or when the car first moves.

this has been happening for a few years now.


I originally got a sc300 auto rear ds and I acquired a mk3 w58 front shaft. I then got it pressed into the center carrier housing from the sc300(auto shaft)




and here is the end product





so in reality I just need an inch or 2 of shorter ds length.



so I don't want to make the mistake of getting an actual w58 ds from a sc300 and having the same issue. reminder this is going on a sc400 body.

anyone have a take on this??

Wait a second.... mk3 w58 front shaft????

I was talking sc300 5-speed shaft. The rear portions of the SC300 auto AND 5-speed are the same. The front portion is not.

I'm not aware of people using a mk3 w58 driveshaft at all. You can use the r154 front halfshaft when swapping in a R154 into the sc300 but can't speak for an mk3 W58 driveshaft.

well be shocked and awed!!

-- iam running a mk4/sc300 w58 transmission with a 2jz bell housing.


-- and iam running a front half w58 driveshaft from a mk3 n/a supra

--and finishing it off with a rear driveshaft from a lexus sc300 auto.

yes they all work but the front half needs to be an inch-2shorter- my issue!

There's a huge difference between an inch or two. Sounds like you have slop somewhere in you're drive train. It should either interfere all the time, or not at all. I believe I have a stock w58 sc front half, I could measure later tonight.
