I need a 4x4 output shaft for my 2wd 4l80e. Anyone know where to get one?
Good transmission place or probably even GM. Last I asked around they were only $75!
Any idea how much a reputable trans shop would charge to swap out outputs?
if you are going to swap in a shaft. get the one for a 1 ton van . its a full spline slip yoke on the tail shaft. then if later you need to cut some off to fit like a swaped in 205 or 203 range box on. you wont need to swap the shaft again.
Please explain.... im confused.
most of the shafts are splined just so far. this one is full splined all the way to the back of the case. so all you need to do is cut off what you dont need.
So why couldn't I just get a 4X4 shaft and be done with it?
This is the full splined 4L80 shaft with the part # shown from GM Direct for around a hundred.With this shaft you could hook up just about any type transfer and cut off the extra.The best part about it having the extra spline is being able to use a short input 205.
yes you can.
but we are just trying to save you money in the long run. as most of us hear have done and do. we change to better parts. so this was just a futer plainning ahead money and time saving option for you.
Im sorry, Im still confused. Its sounding like you think that im rebuilding the trans and going 4wd sometime in the future, but Ive got a rebuilt 2wd and I need it 4wd. If the above statements still apply, I still dont get why a van shaft is going to save me time and money in the future, but bear with me.
I found this, can anyone cross-check as this being a 4wd output shaft for a 93 4l80e? p/n 8661598
