    I have one I was gonna get shortened for my np205 swap, but the welding shop said the splines were worn out. If you want, I'll see if I cant go over there and pick it up. He said it be like 70 bucks to fix and it needs a new front u joint. You could have it for shipping.

    If you want tog balls out you can get a new shaft from high angle or tom woods but thats heavy cash. I say try the junkyard.

    Mine does that too. Any way to rebuild them, or is it cheaper to get a new one made? thanks
