Product Questions

I see this question is asked already (will this driveshaft fit my 1965 289v8 c4 trans?) the steel drive shaft is 51" long and fits this application' but the aluminum 51" doesn't? WHY?

Asked by: does not matter
All that makes it for a T5 is the yoke, if this is the correct length, you'll be able to swap your your and U joints to this and use it.

This has the exact same dimension as the 51" steel drive shaft (for a stock 1965 mustang 289 with a c4 trans) in every way you have in the description including universal joints on both descriptions What makes it a only a t5 fitment?
