I had to cut mine down to get it to work, also rattle can it black (or color of your choice) to keep it from rusting.Well, I went ahead and bought one from Summit Racing. It got here in 2 days with Federal Express and no extra charge!!! I havent installed it yet but it looks like a sturdy and very well made shaft. It looks like a miniature drive shaft with u-joints on both ends. As long as I don't have to cut it down it should be an easy install. I'll post a pic later.
