did you extended it all the way?

is it possible they sent a rear driveshaft?

Check out tom woods driveshafts,his stronger shafts may be near the same prices

How much did you pay for it? I'd go to the junkyard, get a used one, rebuild it, then send it out to get it balanced.. If you have deep pockets, then TW..

Perhaps a front shaft from a XJ?
