View Full Version : Driveshaft troubles

10-13-2013, 12:12 PM
Hello everyone I am In the process of doing a 5 speed swap and instead of buying the USDM manual driveshaft I bought the JDM MT driveshaft it was a good fit but the rear u joints were bad... and there's no way autozone or whatever is going to have the JDM u-joints...so my question is should I return the JDM driveshaft and keep on looking for a USDM one or should I try to fix the JDM u-joints?(reason why I bought JDM in the first place was that there were no other driveshafts in my area...not even one -.- that was the only MT Driveshaft that I found )

I cant see why it would be different. When swapping a SR, CA or RB 20 which is externally the same transmission end they all use a stock drive shaft from your 240. You should be able to get the ones for your oem car and have at it.

That's what I thought too but then I bought the OEM U-joints for the USDM driveshaft and the ends were too small....
