driveline compatibility?

Postby sonic reducer » Wed Jun 11, 2014 3:59 am

are coupes and verts the same driveshaft length? I'm about to do a 5sp swap with a '87 coupe and a '88 vert as the donor car. an '88 vert would have the getrag 260 correct?

I would assume so. the subframes and stuff swap so I would assume the drive shafts would. Just make sure it's a small/large guibo that matches with your trans. Though, I'm not 100%. I'm more like 90% sure.
