AM Propellor Shaft (aka Drive Shaft-Rear) & Center Support #

AM number at Powertrain Industries is 2392-602 for MTs and 2392-603 -for ATs.

I got a reman rear shaft from Powertrain Industries in September of 2010. It was $329 plus core of $60 (which was instantly refunded when old one received!).
And - the freight from Houston to STL was free!
And a UPS call tag was included!

This came with rebuildable U-joints with Zerk grease fittings. It was also balanced and came assembled - INCLUDING an installed new center support bearing!

My contact at PI's Springfield, MO office was Rick - extremely helpful and knowledgeful. He said the Houston location happened to have a T4WD shaft in stock and it shipped the next day.
EDIT August 2013: PI's Springfield website is http://www.driveshaftpro.com/springfield Phone number is 417-863-1830. Rick is still there - ask to speak to him, and tell him Tom in STL from August 2010 and his T4WD recommended him and the company.

The toll-free number (CA home office) is 800-798-4585 - he said to mention his name when calling there. At the time in Sept., it had 53 (!) of our shafts in stock out there.

Note that after installation, if "new noises" are encountered from the transmission - just loosen the connection at the pumpkin and rotate the whole shaft 180 degrees; that fixed a worrisome noise for me.

I would also definitely get new bolts/nuts for the flange mounts; the OE ones are EASY to round off!!! I also wound up having to buy an inexpensive ($9) crowfoot set from Harbor Freight because of the tight quarters on the flanges.
