I know the flange for the 8.8 they had to order in which was like $30 and im sure the trans yoke was about $50... so where did the rest of the price come in? This weekend I am gonna dig up the receipt if I still have it and look it all over.
Could only be the tubing, shaft ends, and labor. As for measuring, I've always put the car up where I can get under it comfortably (making sure the rear axle is fully loaded) then measure center to center on the u-joints with the trans yoke pulled out 3/4" from fully inserted. There are other ways to measure, so whatever you use, be sure to tell the shop exactly how you measured.
