Greetings:

To buy a new drive shaft would be suprisingly cheap, and alot better than stealing one from an older car. A new drive shaft usually includes new U-joints and balancing and everything! When I had one made in New Hampshire for my TH400 swap in my 1981 Z28, I paid $120 thats cheap for the reliablility and new looks. all you have to do it go to a junk yard and find a junky shaft with the slip yoke that you would like to use on it. Bring that to them, they'll cut off the yolk you are using, and make a whole new drive shaft out of it. They do also need to know how long it needs to be also. I hope I've been some help!

Hey slvrchvy check out www.recycler.com under the autos section. I just did a search for 69 Camaro parts and theres a guy who has a TH350 with driveshaft for $250. His address is [email protected]. The guys name is Roland and he live in SoCal. Good luck

My th400 didn't have a slip yolk, it had one bolted down solid. I had to have my driveshaft made with a slip joint on the driveshaft itself.
