After busting my driveshaft and having it "repaired" 3 times; it is still not working the way it should. It shimmies like crazy. It may be cheaper at this point to start over.

So here is the question: What drive shafts are compatible with 63 impala, 2-door hardtop?

I would gather that 62, 63, 64 Imp, Bis, Bel-Air are. I also heard that mid 70's chevy pickup trucks may be, but am not sure of any details like year and model....

I had bent it , they cut off the entire section and welded a new one in. that worked for like a week, then i dropped the back all the way down and it made a loud noise, and started shaking.

I brought the driveshaft back to them and they replaced the center bearing and the spline that goes into the center bearing.

Got it back and the (new) bearing was bad. they ate the cost of that because that is how they gave it to me. anyway, new bearing now and still shimmies.

BTW, it has been balanced each time it was in the shop.
