I have a driveshaft I pulled from a 97 Z28 for sale. Guy asked if it was from an automatic or straight drive. I told him auto and he said he needed one from a manual. I thought they were the same. He said they have different yoke and spline count. I've researched it some and can't get a consensus! I'm curious to know if he's correct or not.
Anyone know for sure?

I looked it up in the 4th gen parts book. According to the book, most lt1 cars use the same yolk assembly. There are a few exceptions. Parts book doesn't list the reasons for different part numbers.

I went to Carpart.com to look up local junkyard replacements. They showed several driveshafts from both autos and manuals. So it gives me the impression that there's no difference. However, I defer to the experts here.

If the guy that's interested in your driveshaft lives nearby, have him bring his shaft over and compare the number of splines on the yolk. Then you'll know for sure if they will interchange.
