aluminum driveshaft

I always keep my eye out for good deals on Craigslist and eBay even if I'm not planning on the mod yet. Anyway I found what I think is a good deal on an aluminum driveshaft. I'm supposed to look at it today and was wondering what I should look at to ensure that there is nothing wrong with it. Also, I'm pretty sure that the driveshaft is the same for both aod and t5 trannies, correct?

Re: aluminum driveshaft

just check the yoke's for stress cracks along the welds and u-joints for sloppyness
but if the shafts in good shape and its a good deal you can replace the u joints
