93 4runner cv joint shot!!

well after going out and playing in the blizzard, my 4 wheel drive no longer works, i inspected the front drive axle and looks like the driver side cv joint completely shredded! i do not have the time or money right now to fix it, but i'm not concerned bout using the 4x4, but is it ok to drive in 2 wheel drive or will the wheel bearing fail causing the tire to fall off? any help is greatly appeciated! thank you!

is the axle actually broken or is the rubber boot just torn, if its just the boot torn then u can still run it the joint will just wear out quicker. Ur 4wd may not be working due to snow being packed up into the front axle and damaging the electrical or vacuum connections on the front of the axle check those and make sure nothings broken or disconected

No, the bearings secure the hub and the axle shaft passes through it. Hope you have selectable hubs and not drive flanges, though, or your axle will still be spinning.

axle shaft is not broke, the boot completely slipped off and the joint itself where the bearing race? is completey shredded. there was some snow packed in there, but i pulled it in the garage and stuck a heater on it, melting all the ice and snow. when i drive you can hear a constant grinding niose. after doing some searching on here, i'm not worried about the wheel bearing anymore, but i am concerned about the shaft siezing. i wish i had the manual hubs, but no, i do have the add. is there a way of totally disconnecting something and run it in 2wd with no worries?

Pull the cv axle and do something to seal up the backside of the spindle. That's about it.

No Problem, and if you haven't already read up on the bolt modifications to the diff side of the cv axle, I highly recommend doing it. I got some new metric 10.9 bolts for it, but if you didn't wanna spend the money, you can just take the time to grind the splines off the existing bolts. I haven't broken a cv on the trail yet, I'm pretty careful, but I know it wasn't nearly as difficult to pull my cv's when I installed my ball joint spacers.

unfortunately, all the toyotas in a 100 mile raduis seem to be still going! cause i cant seem to locate ANY yotas. but the whole assembly only set me back 76 bucks with the core charge, i'm satisfied..... for now.
