Broke the driver side halfshaft on my 88 Vulcan wagon yesterday. I have a driver half shaft from a 93 3.2 ATX SHO parts car I stripped a few years ago. Aside from the inboard axle section being a little beefier and an ABS ring (both on the SHO shaft) the length between the two is the same, and it would appear to fit in the car (did a quick test fit).

Before I put everything back together, just wondering if anyone else has done something similar. I'm not too keen about putting it all back together only to find some massive vibration or a problem turning because of some engineering difference that I have no knowledge about :)

Thanks!

I don't see why it wouldn't work. I would count the splines and possibly mic the diameter of them as well between the two axles. I've got regular 93 Taurus axles in my car with a 95 AX4S-HO trans.[/b]
Well, the job is done and it seems to be working just fine. No noises or vibrations (moreso than before anyway, ball joints are a little weak.) That's an extra $60.00 off my $175 parts car :)

You know this already, but the ATX halfshafts are all the same. The SHO might have different boots to handle spinning at 139MPH, but other than that... the same.
