I need to mate a V160 to a ford rear end and need a custom length driveshaft (non-supra application). I've already called DSS and their price was a bit higher than I was expecting.

What are my other options here? Does anyone else stock the parts to do this? Should I convert to a 1350 yoke?

I honestly don't know anything about driveshafts.

Email these guys and talk to them.

They made my 350z trans to ford rear end driveshaft for my 2jz miata and the price was VERY fair and far cheaper then I expected.

Buy the adapter. Goes from v160 to 1350 bolt pattern.
Then get whoever to make u a shaft.

I already ordered a complete setup from Shaftmasters. I'm not sure if he'll use an adapter, but the gentleman I spoke with was certainly familiar with both the trans and rear I'm running and I'm comfortable with whatever he recommends. So far I've been extremely pleased with their CS skills versus the usual suspects.

I ended up going with a 3.5" aluminum shaft. My length was only 42.4375" so it should be pretty darn strong.


EDIT: The shaft shipped the day after I ordered it! I'm very excited...

I got this bad boy in the mail less than a week from when I ordered it. It looks fantastic, with a nice boot and clamps over the slip-joint.

I'll post some pics later (hopefully this weekend) once I install it.

I forgot to take any on the car because I was running around, but it fit perfectly. The front flange mates with the V160, and the rear bolted perfectly to my Ford rear. It's a 3.5" alum tube, for reference.
