not sure how to tell..dont know much with engine and other parts haha

n00b :rauch08:


get down and look under the truck... you'll wanna be by the bedside next to the cab.

the one piece is a big bitch that goes from the trans to the rearend.

the 2 piece goes from the trans to a crossmember, then down to the rear. the driveshaft will also be a lil smaller as well.

and if he complains... show him this. for size reference... the rims are 18s and the total wheel height is 25in (97 CC v6 sport)

crossmember goes from frame rail to frame rail, if you look at the teo bigger bolts, those are for the rack and pinion (steering) and its attached to the crossmember (factory put a little skid plate to help the rack and pinion not get hit all the time)

I think it's a good thing you joined the forum lol

A 1 piece drive shaft will be 1 piece from the output of the transmission to the rear end... a 2 piece will have an extra crossmember (goes frame rail to frame rail like SHO said) and it will have a big bearing mounted to it that the drive shaft will go through.
