Driveshafts - Auto and 4spd the same?


Recommended Posts

I am also planning this swap for later in the spring. But what I read was that they are the same length. There may be differences between real early cars (like mine) and later 240Z's (where the diff was relocated back some), but I don't think the driveshafts differ from auto to manual for the same year cars.

Perhaps you could pull the drive shaft from the parts car and compare the two. I'd think you could do it without having to remove the drive shaft from your gf's car. Jack it up and compare the length between the u-joints on each drive shaft.

As Arne says, I think the only difference in length is related to the location of the differential, which was moved rearward in later 240's.
