Got my new drive shaft from Tatton's Driveline in today. This thing is a beast and has all spicer u-joints in it. Took it up to 70mph and its smooth as glass...well if glass had km2s.

I called them directly and talked to Curtis, he's really cool and took the time to make sure I was getting the correct shaft and that I measured correctly. I will be ordering my front drive shaft from him for sure.

It cost $235 shipped, there is a shop locally that charges over $300 for the same thing.

Actually it has 7" of spline engagement and if you look closely there is only about 1" of exposed spline. I thought the same thing at first but look at how the splines tapper as they go towards the front.
