HOW TO MEASURE DRIVESHAFT LENGTH.
our driveshafts come with new slip yokes I suggest you first order the
driveshaft. We will ship you a new slip yoke to install in the transmission.
Take your measurement, return the new yoke with the measurements in writing,
and we will make the shaft and then return it to you fully assembled and
When making your measurements the car must be at its normal ride
height. Measure on the floor. DO NOT measure with the wheels hanging down from
a hoist or jack stands. The proper measurement must be taken as if the car is
fully loaded and running down the road to insure proper driveshaft length.
Install the new yoke into the back of the transmission, push it all the way in,
then pull it back 1.0. With the help of a friend measure the center to center
of the front u-joint and the rear u-joint on the differential. It is sometimes
difficult to guess where the centerline of a u-joint is. By moving to the rear
of the slip yoke u-joint and measuring to the rear of the differential u-joint
it is the same as measuring center to center.
You must fax or write us with the
proper centerline to centerline dimension and your signature.
