    You can take the old (provided that you still have it) and have the driveshaft shop do what you need with it to make you a new one, or use it to compare to one you may find in the yard.

    Yes it's damaged, I have a big vibration when i go faster then 65 MPH and i have tried going whitout, and my vibration is gone, I have checked it but I can't find something wrong, I work as a car mechanic in Norway (You have to excuse my bad english) So I think I will change it, but since it's hard to find K5 parts I wondering can I use a drive shaft from another car? like a pickup, van?

    If you can find one from a pickup, you will be close - but you will have to have it shortened most likely, since the pickup driveshafts were longer than the Blazers...have you checked the u-joints? Could be a bad joint...

    Check and make sure you didn't lose the little balancing weight on the driveshaft, also check your u-joints.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]

    I have checked my U-joints looked was ok but the splines on the middle of my driveshaft is not good, I can turn front and rear parts in opposite direction a little bit, I don't know but maybe this is my problem ?
