FYI: Driveshaft lengths

Recently I've noticed 1994-97 3.8L owners inquiring about or actually buying a 1993 Mark VIII one piece driveshaft as an upgrade. Little do they know that it won't fit!

So I thought it would be a good idea to pass some information along. The complaint from people is they didn't know that the 3.8L 4R70W car has a driveshaft that's 1.20" shorter than the 4.6L car.

94-97 3.8L 4R70W 57" driveshaft

94-97 4.6L 4R70W 58.20" driveshaft

93-98 Mark VIII 4R70W 58.20" driveshaft

89-95 3.8L M5R2 53.80" driveshaft

89-93 3.8L AOD 57.80" driveshaft

89-93 5.0 AOD 57.80" driveshaft

These specs are from the group purchase Shane (Kodiak Kid) had last year.


It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.
