I don't think so, as long as they index it so you can line it up right.

I would replace the u-joints while you have it out.

Lol.
You're "dead set" on a drive shaft...
That sounds like a good deal. Check it for any "dings" and such. Unless it's out of a high horsepower car, it should be good as new with some fresh U-Joints...

I remember when they were $160 new from Summit back in 2003...

**shakes cane at screen***

But yeah that's a good deal on a used one these days. You'll be able to tell if the U joints are messed up just by pulling on them and making sure everything is firm. You can get the whole thing checked by a shop for like $40 if you are really feeling froggy.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
