I have just bought a 7m-gt 5 speed 1PC ALUMINUM drive shaft.. I installed it on my 5 speed 1jz and it seems to short?? Im not sure if there is supposed to be a little space between the tranny and the driveshaft?? Its been a while since ive taken the old one off.

Plus i used to have an auto so i can use the old one for a refrence..

Thanks
Josh

Its a 7mgte shaft..

The problem is wen i installed it onto my car, it seemed as if the driveshaft didnt but all the way upto the tailshaft on the tranny.. If i put the tranny side in first i slide it in untill it cant go anyfarther, then i look down at the differential end and there is like a 1/2 inch gap inbetween the driveshaft and the diff.. So to hook it up i just slid it out of the tranny side enought to get it to but up to the 4 bolt holes..

Im pretty sure its fine, im just curious if there is any front to back play from the tranny to the shaft.

Now that ive connfused you, can you help me.. :)

Thanks
Josh
