3rd Gen Rear Axle

Asked by Aug 23, 2016 at 12:10 AM about the 1998 Toyota 4Runner 4 Dr Limited 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My axle is going out on my 98 4Runner Limited
with 356k miles. The housing needs to be replaced
as well. I have a friend the wants to sell an earlier
and wrecked, but not totalled, 98 SR5 with 200k for
cheap $800.  Is that worth buying?  How do I tell if
they'll match up?

Housing is the same, but you need to determine if the gear ratio is the same, as it has to match your front dif. also you have to determine if there is a locker dif or posi.

How do I go about doing that? Is that info on the Vin plate inside the door sill?
