A-body driveshaft shortening/measuring question....
I need a driveshaft for a '72 Duster but found one for a '72 Dart that is approx. 3 or 4 inches to long. I am going to have it shortened but need to know how to measure. If I slide the driveshaft into the tranny, how far should I pull it out before measuring? Or, does anyone know the exact length of a '72 Duster driveshaft?

At ride height.... install front yoke all the way in....pull out 1"...measure frome center to center on u-joints... Just make sure measurements are at ride height.

I would ask the person who is going to shorten the drive shaft, he might want the mesurment from the trans output shaft to the rear yoke.
