With the exception of the front drive shaft in
Discovery II applications, The Land Rover & Range Rover generally
used a conventional 2 joint drive shaft. There were also some rear
applications that, rather than using a universal joint at the rear
differential end, used what Land Rover referred to as the
“Roto-Flex” coupling. This “Roto-Flex” coupling is an elastomeric
element that connects the drive shaft to the pinion flange with six
bolts. Three of the bolts connect the coupling to the drive shaft
the other three connect the coupling to the pinion flange.
We offer a variety of drive shafts for the
Land Rover / Range Rover applications ranging through the
conventional two joint drive shaft, the conventional double cardan
and a multiple double cardan drive shaft. If you have no lift on the
vehicle, you are probably best served with the stock type drive
shaft. If you have a lift on the vehicle you may want to consider a
All of the drive shafts we manufacture for the Land Rover are direct “bolt in” replacement shafts. It is no longer necessary to use the old style adapter flanges.
