    It looks like the 92-95 drive shaft will work if you swap the yoke and put a conversion u joint in it. The 96-97 drive shaft should be a direct bolt in, and from what I read, is better because its welded together vs the older ones that are pressed together.

    anyone read about any failures with these? I am curious since I can't imagine they were designed nor balanced to be spun past 85-90 and I can't help but think about that vid where the kid took the gov off of his car and the v6 shaft gave up at 115mph.

    A brand new Ford Racing shaft is $277 shipped to your door. I wouldn't waste my time with swapping yokes on a van shaft.
