What to look for in a MarkVIII Driveshaft???

Im going to a junk yard tomorrow to pick up a 1 piece shaft. Is there anything that I should be looking for? How do I know if its not messed up?

And whats a good price? When I called they wanted $125, that sound right? good price?

Uh, make damn sure its a welded one piece out of a 93 Mk VIII(had a local guy try to sell me one out of an aerostar). Make sure its not bent or otherwise screwed up and see if you can fnid a shop that can give it a good balance job?

you won't be able to see a bend, so bring a LONG straight edge. ANY bend makes the shaft junk.
