: After extensive research, I determined that the lenght should be 22.09875" fron the front of the 3 bolt guibo flange to the center of the U joint of the front driveshaft section. I had mine shortened to this length and it has worked perfectly eversince I did the tranny swap about a year and a half ago.

: Hope this helps,

: : Anyone know the figures for getting drive shaft shortened for my '76 '02? I have a 320i tranny and need to know what the specs are as far as getting it shortened. Thanks.

They always say to install the tranny, then measure because of lack of consistancy. Auto Solutions will sell you the three bolt flange, maybe have some free advice
