Has anyone swapped a Crown Vick aluminum drive shaft onto their car? I have access to one from an 07 Police interceptor.
I have several questions.
1. Does it need to be shortened?
2. What is a fair price to pay for it?
3. What is a fair price to have it shortened?

1. Does it need to be shortened?
yes

2. What is a fair price to pay for it?
$20?

3. What is a fair price to have it shortened?
shortened and re-balanced probably about $125-$150 at least to have it done right

personally i'd make sure to get quality parts from a well know drive shaft specialist, find a guy who truly knows how to weld aluminum and then have it balanced... why the extra steps you ask. i had my original ford racing aluminum drive shaft shortened and rebuild when i changed from an astro T5 to T56 and snapped it on my third pass because this local shop used cheap u-joints and the welds had very little penetration.
