Should be the same length given the same wheelbase and the same transmission/t-case setup. You can also have your old shaft re-tubed with heavier wall tubing to make it stronger at any driveline shop (local or one of the on-line shops).

88 is a bastard one year only driveshaft. Unless you are changing the flanges you need an 88 driveshaft and only an 88 driveshaft.


The second gen v6 w/ same trans should be the same length though.

you can drill your flanges to fit anything. Toy d-shafts have a concentric ring on the yoke/flange mating surface, Just stick a yoke up there, vise-grip two ears and drill away, bolt'em and drill your other two holes.

Just going through this right now, what a pain in the ass. The pattern is literally a hair off, just enough to make it not bolt together between the 4cyl CV and the 6cyl CV. Not sure about the rear pattern but the bolts are larger on the rear yoke too.

Any V6 flange should bolt up and probably have to be redrilled, be aware that it has to be a V6 flange though as the front and rear output shafts are larger and more splines than the 4cyl ones.

Does anyone know what the year interchange-ability is for the centering ring in the flange and recess in the yoke is? My shaft in my non-turbo 4 cyl '88 has a raised ring in the center that sets into a female recess in the yoke. It uses 10 mm bolts, non-cv, one piece. The raised ring is straight, as is the recess. I bought a 4 cyl 3rd from an unknown year, which uses the smaller 8 mm bolts, but the female recess in the yoke is tapered, not straight. Would a V6 yoke have a straight or tapered recess?
