i took the 4agze out today and ran it up and down the street just fine, and when i was pullin in my drive way the axle dropped out the inner joint . its a custom axle so anyways the bearings where laying on the driveway . how do i put this back together or do i need to take it to a shop and have them do it ? what would make it come out like that, it almost seems as if someone just pulled it apart ?

It sounds like the shaft isn't long enough.
Also, what was holding the boot on?
You need to use the correct size boot clamps [read: buy them from Toyota].
As long as the bearings aren't chipped up, clean it up and slide it back in. Make sure it's got plenty of grease in there. CV boot grease, not general stuff.
