Ginger gets a BIG BOY driveshaft!

2/8/12 I hadn't planned on getting Ginger a driveshaft but I found a KILLER deal I just couldn't pass up! The install was pretty easy and very straight forward. I had to call The Driveshaft Shop and ask them for the torque specs and check a couple of things. They were great and very helpful even though I bought it used, nice bunch of guys.

I haven't had time to wash Ginger so excuse her filthiness.

Cost of today's mods: $475
Used 3.5" aluminum one piece drive shaft: $475

I didn't weigh it but others have and it's only about 2 lbs difference. Most don't do this mod for weight savings. I did it to get rid of the big rubber connectors on the stock piece and have a more solid transfer of power.

I swapped mine out but with another stock one.

I suspect I'll break this one too.

VERY nice price on that. Damn. Congrats.
