while getting ready to install the drive shaft between the bell housing and the trans, my buddy told me i need to offset the u-joints (in other words, place the splined part so that the u joints are 90 degrees off from eachother) to avoid bad vibes....i dont think ive ever heard of sure most of you know if this needs to be done. thanks, kris

UHH, What type of drive shaft. Ohh, sorry just reread. From what I know, the shaft between the motor and tranny has a very straight shot. If I am correct, that means that the Ujoints in technicality can be out of phase and will not cause vibes. So, it all depends on the angles associated with the shaft.
