Question TH350 Swap in a 1986 Z28. Help?

I have gotten the transmission installed in the Camaro already with custom bracketry but i do not have a driveshaft. Any suggestions on the types of drivshafts that will work with this setup and is possible to change out the yolk and run the stock driveshaft? i know the driveshaft will need to be longer.

is it a 6" tailshaft or a 9" tailshaft on the TH350?

if its a 9" tailshaft, you should be able to use the stock d/s or one from a 4th gen. but if its a 6" tailshaft, you need to get a custom length drive shaft

Why would you want to put a TH350 in her? You are going to lose a gear and you'll be cursing the car on the highway.

its not that bad. I'm more than likely going to be putting a TH350 or 400 in the 94Z. I dont drive it far enough to worry about the overdrive.

i probably wont be driving it to much and the overdrive takes way more power to turn it. i dont have to outrageous gears in it they are only 3.27:1 and i dont expect a Camaro to get to good gas mileage anyways lol
