1984 Rear Diff/Axle Assembly trade for '85

Post by jmoore » Mon Dec 17, 2018 12:13 pm

Hey guys, I am new to the forum. I just bought an 85 4wheel drive tercel that has an 84 transmission in it. From my research on this site, most of us are familiar with the gearing differences so currently My wagon is only operable with front wheel drive. I have taken the drive shaft out to save myself potential headaches. Does anyone know where to get a 3.73:1 differential assembly to match the front? Or is there anyone who wants to trade/sell rear axles?
I also have many other spares if you wish to trade CV axles, radiators, AC units plastics, ask and I may have it.

welcome to the forum!

where are you located? watch your local picknpulls or other self service wrecking yards for the correct year T4wd to show up. Usually the rear diffs are in good condition, they are very durable and in the Tercel4wd hardly get that much use since the default drive mode is front wheel drive.
