    I'm not really sure what you mean by style, but its for a 1978 chevrolet pickup. t400 transmission, with a four inch lift. Obviously its a rear drive shaft. Is that the info you were needing?

    was referring more or less to a fixed or slip style shaft, but if it's in a 78, it should be fixed, i think.

    Driveline shops are pretty much everywhere. Here's a few listings I found quickly on the internet. Not sure where exactly you are located but maybe one of these is close enough. Other than that, best bet would be to have one made and shipped to you.

    Slip yokes slide into the t-case and the shaft is solid, fixed style are bolted to the t-case output shaft and have a slip shaft.
