    I am switching out my 203 for a 205 and wanted to know if anybody could measure there driveshafts.

    I am running a turbo 350 trans to a 205 case. It is a 77 long bed chevy truck.

    Will the front shaft stay the same length?

    Will the shafts off of a long bed with a 465/205 combo work?

    Any help would be great i am just looking for a close measurment so i know if the extra shafts i have will work or if i will have to get new ones made.

    465/205 rear shaft will be too short to use and the front shaft might be too long..
