Hi,
      I'm having problems finding a replacement rear axle for my '94 4WD Hiace. There's a discussion in the "I need" section and I have a temporary fix in place, thanks to the help I've already received there. I may need to try to get it welded up if I can't find a replacement but I fear that will only be a slightly more temporary fix, and a much more expensive one, too...!

If anyone knows of a 4x4 Hiace being broken- privately or in a yard somewhere in the UK would they mind letting me know, please? I've tried a few online parts searchers and phoned several yards that advertise breaking either 4x4s or vans but so far, no joy...

Posting here in the hope of reaching a wider audience.

Thanks!

Cheers,
          W.

Your best bet is to search gumtree, autotrader and eBay etc for Hiace parts, and then contact the advertiser to see if they are scrapping the whole van.

Hi,
     I've been looking at the toyodiy parts website and it looks like pretty much all the mid-90s 4x4 Hiaces shared the same axle housing... which seems like good news for me, as just about any one would do.

I'm a bit concerned about the suspension differences, though: my LH129 has leaf springs... did all mid-90s Hiace 4x4s have leaves or did some come with coils? If they came with coils... is the axle the same?

If anyone has a coil-spring 4x4 (ie part-time/locking-hubs with transfer case, not the later full-time AWD system that doesn't have low ratio), can they let me know the model number, so I can check for compatibility?

Thanks for any help!

Cheers,
           W.

Seen a couple being broken on facebook recently. Don't remember if they are what you need, but have a search for the hiace camper group.
