An integrated flexural theta-mount system for a disk drive incorporates a series of varying length flexures that are combined with an external and internal frame, therefore comprising a singular system for theta rotation. The integrated flexural system is embodied in a way to preserve the present industry standard form factor of a 3.5 inch disk drive while solving the associated read/write position errors resulting from sources of vibration.
