driveshaft has to come out completely and a measurement is needed from trans flange to diff flange.

Jason,

Preferred if you can find a "C43/CLK430" drive shaft from junk yard,

and send it to the company to take an accurate measurement.....

you cannot measure the driveshaft, the center telescopes and you cannnot get an accurate measurement, has to be flange to flange with DS removed.

The info I previously got was from another Co in CA. Could you PM me pricing & where to measure exactly for my R230 SL? Thnx

EDIT: Just emailed them, if they can make 1 for my SL, it'll be ordered asap..

i have some questions about the transmission output flange that you guys are talking about -

im installing a used transmission, but the used transmission came with the 4 bolt output flange, from what i've read in this thread it's not as simple as unbolting the 4 bolt flange to add the 3 bolt flange?

if you could simply swap out the flange maybe it would be a lot easier for people to make this upgrade if they have the 3 piece flange

I know this is an old thread but I was curious if anyone found out if there is a carbon fiber drive shaft for the SL600/65?

driveshaft shop.... FYI carbon driveshaft's do not just bolt in, you have to remove the center support completely even the mount from the body. The shaft because its carbon needs to be larger in OD and is very close in a couple spots.
