From searching the forum I have gathered that a new carrier bearing isn't worth looking for because it is out of production. Same goes for the intermediate shaft.

In my 1988 2.2l Daytona Shelby with the A555 5-speed, what do I need to replace the intermediate shaft with these days?

When I replaced the driver side, the parts book at the performance shop said that in my car, the left and right axles are the same.

Is it true that I could just purchase the same axle I did for the driver side and use it on the passenger side? If not, what do I do?

Here is a picture of the axle I purchased a couple weeks ago and installed on the driver side. It is the same axle the shop said would fit the passenger side, according to their books.

ya that axle would fit IF you were going to put the intermediate shaft BACK IN

what you need now is the long pass side one from a non turbo or auto of the same year &^

also note the weight in middle of shaft - that would not be there on a pass side shaft (short)

save your short pass side d-s 'cause if good it's a spare driver's side if you need it


HA! didn't see the hortens cup till I looked again

Hehe, can't get the job done without some coffee (or beer)

Right on, thanks for the info.

Is it much work to separate the driveshaft from the intermediate? As far as I know there isn't anything wrong with the u-joint or carrier bearing (not 100% on the bearing, but the u-joint is good). But if it's going to be a pain in the ass I'll just get a new "long axle".

they often seaze at the spline where the two shafts fit together

yep if really stuck it's trouble

the only one I ever bashed apart striped the spline a couple of weeks later

the next one I had to do that was seazed , I took the whole asembly to a local shop and had drive shaft re&red with the intermediate shaft still stuck on inner c/v housing

after I explained why to the shop , they did it and gave it back to me with the shaft still stuck on and everything but the inner housing and shaft were new

- but the inner housing has to still be good - and of course so does the hanger bearing
