Putting the finishing touches on a new car and need advice on drivshaft length . Rear suspension is a three link . Just to try it I put the driveshaft from my other car on it and with a 7" yoke I have 2" of exposed yoke which leaves 3and a half inches of engaged splines inside the yoke . When the driveshaft is on the other car there is only 1" of exposed yoke showing which gives 4 1/2 " of engaged splines . Which one is a better choice ?

I don't exactly understand the 2 choices but I can tell you you'll want at least 2 inches sticking out of the tranny for sure if not 3...

2" is perfect. 1" might lead to the yoke getting into the tail piece and breaking it.
