Which Driveshaft?

Complete newb to working on driveshafts.
I going to need one soon. What components does the driveshaft consist of.

I have a chevy camaro T-5 That i will go figure out the spleen count. I need a driveshaft that will connected that to a sonoma gmc 1998 rear end.

Not sure I understand. Do you intend to install the T-5 into the 98 Sonoma or other? Sonoma's came with 5-speeds so you may find what you need in the Junkyard.

If there is a one piece Sonoma drive shaft , that should bolt up to the differential and slide into the 27 spline out put shaft of the transmission.

Probably many of the S-10 drive shafts would fit each end. Shorten to needed length
