Default Aluminum Driveshaft for Auto`s?


The Question says it all. I see you can get Aluminum Driveshafts for the Manual but nowhere can i find one for my 97 GT. Is this Something you would have to have Custom made or are they out there somewhere?


Thanks
Mal

you wont find any on the internet that says "for autos". Just buy ones that fit 5-speeds and use your automatic yokes. Thats what i plan on doing.

Wouldn't an auto driveshaft be a different length than a manual tranny driveshaft?

why does everyone want aluminum for? i mean i understand the concept, but it cracks a lot easier, and doesn't take as much to break.
