Fellas, i got a bit of a dilema,

I bought a 700r4 from bowtie overdrives. Im about 2/3 of the way done and i took my drive shaft to a shop that has shortened several of my friends drive shafts. Im switching from a turbo 350 to the 700r4. The fella said that the shaft was in pretty bad shape ( the ends of the shaft where the U- joints meet the shaft). They say they might be able to fix it, but the metal is fatigued a pretty good amount. If they do fix it, i cant really "floor" the car or i might damage it. With this thing getting supercharged (around 500 horses) It may not last long. Does anyone know where to get a new shaft that will fit the 700r4 without getting cut? Basically i need a shaft for an "82.
Happy Holidays

Any decent driveshaft shop should be able to re-tube your existing yokes and balance it in an hour. :)

So, if they do it right, it'll be good as new?
Thanx
