Are driveshafts the same for a '72 and a '67? I am planning to put in a 302 w/ 4 speed manual in the '67. Can I use a '72 driveshaft? Thanks.

I do not know for sure but I would have a hard time believing that it would the same. The reason is that the body style changed so much the 72 car is longer than a 67. Call Mustangs Plus they have custom shafts made maybe they could help.

The '72 driveshaft will be longer. But you can have it shortened easily.

Since I don't know were "Far and Away" is, I can't make a recommendation on where to have it shortened. In my area, Drivelines Northwest does custom shafts. I suspect that just about any good machine shop could help you. It is not a "do-it-yourself" project (unless you are a machinist with the right equipment).

He's in the Philippines.

I had my driveshaft cut and balanced by a company that installs truck bodies. It came out nice.

I had a place that does work on truck axles and dive lines. They cut, welded and balanced it for under $50.

Are those aluminum drive shafts worth the money?
