    When i eventually build up my rear with moser 31 spline axles and an eaton posi rear diff, i wanted to also throw in an aluminum drive shaft. Problem is, everywhere i find them they "only fit 5 speed manuals". Does anybody know where to find driveshafts that fit 97 GT autos??? thanks guys

    You buy the 5 sp unit then put your auto yokes on and install.

    go for it, its a better quality part then stock and reduces rotating mass...get a driveshaft safety loop installed while you are having the shaft out.
