Just blew the rear U-joint and took the driveshafts yoke with it. Is it worth getting it chopped apart and having a new yoke welded on or should I just find another used rear driveshaft? If so does anyone have one kicking around? the shaft is for an 86 p/u

If you can find one that fits thats the cheaper way to go. Getting custom drive shaft work is expensive. Especially the rear because it needs to be balanced if driven on the street.

definatly just get a new driveshaft rather then trying to repair/rebuild your broken one

Thanks, I'll measure this one up and post it later. I've already called around to a ton of wreckers and havn't found one with a second gen toy but I'll keep looking.

yours probably is a custom length depending on how they put that small block in there and the rear susp

Turned out to be a custom driveshaft, chev on one end and toy on the other.
Big thanks to Barndog for hooking me up with a toy end!! machined and welded it on this afternoon and it works great! hitting the trails with you guys tomorrow for the true test

Just did a driveshaft replacement job on a 2005 Chev LS a day or so ago ( Utah auto repair shop) costs about $850 . In your case , check the condition of the U joints in the driveshaft. I am pretty not sure if the setup has either one or 2 U joints . My auto had two . Both were worn out . If the U joints are either worn out or broken , they will obviously need to be replaced . If you have never replaced U joints before , it might be better left to a reputable repair outlet . It can certainly be done at home , but , it is not an easy job if you have no idea what you are doing . The driveshaft is removed easily , but , the U joints do not come out easily .

A rear drive shaft from p'n'p? I call bullshit. Those guys couldn't lift a truck without bending it if their entire future depended on it.

I machined, welded a new yoke on and replaced the u-joint myself. Cost me a grand total of $20 :confused0006:
