Been there, when I swaped in my 383 the u-joint at the rear axle gave out and whipped my driveshaft all over, I have those driveshaft straps on the truck now so if it breaks now its all good. I'm going to wait untill I get my new trans in the truck, I don't even know if this driveshaft will work. I had a 2wd 700r4 with a 2" aluminum spacer on the back because the output shaft was too long, so now going to a 4wd th400 this shaft might be too short, i don't know yet. If it works I'll buy a new yoke, for now I welded the crack.
