Possible 2jz lower block swap in the works if I can't rebuild the 1j. So troublesome.

I got my driveshaft from the driveshaftshop. I'm pretty sure if you go to driftmotion or suprastore you can find driveshafts there as well. I got mine for around 320 shipped. But I don't know if you'll find that with the way things are now.

The whole point for me was to both go lighter than the stock 2 peice (by quite a bit), and to eliminate the minor response time lag when you hit the throttle (due to the center support bearing and well, the driveshaft being to seperate peices). Plus I hear that under increased power, the 2 peice doesn't hold up to well.

Awesome thats exactly what i was looking for in a response. I heard something about the one piece DS being harder on some other parts of the car.....? What are these and should I replace, strengthen them? Or is it just bolt-on? Did you go Aluminum or steel?

I went aluminum for the extra weight reduction. I heard that too about one pieces, that it's harder on some parts, but I haven't seen/felt anything that would make me worry. On the other hand, make sure your diff is mounted nice and secure, my friends decided to mess with me and loosen mine a bit as a joke, and I tore it free from the rear subframe one day while on the road.

A one piece is a bolt in part, since it's just replacing what you already have, nothing extra. If I had the money though, I'd strengthen my tranny with newer parts, but that's about it. Good luck.

Eh it's alright, I loosened the front subframe on his integra. It's funny watching an integra drop it's engine and trans at 45mph. I got my revenge.
