I have a 67 mustang with a t-5 conversion. If I swap out my 8 inch rear for a 9 inch, will my current drive shaft fit or will I need a shorter driveshaft?

Asked by: JoelK
You would need a shorter drive shaft, I believe it is an inch.

Hi, I bought this driveshaft for a 66 mustang C4. However, the u-joint is not compatible. The u-joint and provided too.

Asked by: jujuvintage
The u-joints will fit most applications but it will not fit all, you will have to measure for the u-joint that you need.

i have a 67 mustang with a 302, 3 speed and 9" rear end, will this work?

Asked by: shanelester
You will have to measure to see if it will fit. Install the transmission yoke into the trans without the driveshaft, pull yoke out about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch, than measure from the center of the u-joint eyelet to the center of the pinion yoke u-joint eyelet, that will be the length you need.
