Let's Build A Driveshaft
When you walk into Inland Empire Driveline or Mustangs Plus to buy a driveshaft, you can count on the shaft being an "in-stock" item if you are building a commonplace driveline package. Shafts are available in stock for applications such as a '67 Mustang with a 289, C4 Select-Shift, and an 8-inch rearend. If you are building something out of the ordinary, such as a 5.0L EFI small-block, Tremec TKO, and a 9-inch rearend, you will have to order the shaft. Inland Empire Driveline can build a driveshaft to your specifications and have it on your doorstep in a matter of days.

We decided to have Inland Empire Driveline build us two driveshafts for our project cars: one steel, one aluminum. We learned there isn't much difference in price with steel and aluminum, both are competitively priced.
