    Just wondering if their is much difference between a rear d-shaft in a blazer and in a short box chev. Im wondering, cuz if i can use the shaft that my buddy has from one of his parts trucks, it will save me from having to get one made. Reason why im asking is because i recently put a th400 and np205 in my truck and it came outta a long box so i can use the d-shaft, and i cant use the d-shaft outta my truck cuz it was on a np203 and the slip yoke was on the shaft instead of in the t-case like my np205 is now.
    Thanks
    Josh

    a truck driveshaft will be too long but i think it will work if you shorten it.

    oh sorry i must of got confused but a blazer is about 11 inches shorter than a truck depending on the tranny-transfer case combination
