ordered a new OEM front drive shaft bc mine was messed up too bad to repair the cv joint....pulled up and saw it on porch and was really excited till i opened it and it is too deadgum short. called and they dont have what i need!! i found one on ebay but does anyone know where else i can get one that doesnt cost a ton???

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..

it was a front DS...not sure why but it was about a foot was a refurbish for about $200 with new uv joints and cv joint/centering ball...ive called a few of the local junkyards and even a jeep only junkyard close by and cant find one yet

Perhaps a front shaft from a XJ?
