Bill Crovo has done it twice, and is the man to talk too. Ron "Iceman" as well as Jason "jayss" have done it too.

You could drive it, but I wouldn't do it for long. It'll be doggy, and you'll probably wear out the clutch. You may not even need a driveshaft...

i drove jay ss's white woody with the t56 and the 2:93's it was fine,. BUT he had a heavy flywheel, and an organic disc, AND the motor was tuned right,. you could roll away at idle just fine,. nice car to drive,..its all in the tuning with a 6spd,.

Yeah, some cars can get by with 4.10's and the stock shaft without a vibration. If it were me, I'd save the $400+ and try it without a new shaft first. Then if I needed one, I'd get one.

FWIW, my Fleetwood didn't need one with 4.56's and 26" tires. Smile
