driveshaft?

hey guys, im relatively new to the whole hotrodding thing, i've been building a 69 cutlass for about a year now, and its almost about time to put my motor/trans into the car, its a bbc with a th400, going to a 12 bolt chevy rear


my question is do any companies offer driveshafts for cars in the aspect of what it is; i guess what im trying to say is do they offer lengths for specific cars, rather then just measuring? the car is an a-body so im assuming its a common driveshaft. also which driveshafts are stronger? i've got some power with the motor and dont want anything to twist. i heard aluminum is stronger; is this true? also can you guys recommend anybody online? thanks guys

Buy a steel shaft. Much easier to service and can be repaired at local driveshaft repair shop. Check Yellow Pages locally.
Measure for your car, then you leave NOTHING to chance!!

measure for the length you need. have the drive shaft shop explain how they want it measured.

I have an Inland Empire aluminum shaft in my 61 Dodge Lancer with 350 chevy power. Top quality drive shaft
