shit man it cant weigh more than like 7 kilos at the most, i can pick up my cadi drive shaft with like 2 fingers, and mines fatter and longer than a cutlass. and that inclues the slipshaft and both yokes. it really doesnt weigh all that much mayne!

yeah i know they dont weigh much LOL i was asking because i work in an office and cant just go and pick my driveshaft up, and i need to know so i can order the correct poundage spring for my slip joint without dropping my driveshaft off the car making the car unusable.

The spring only needs to carry the weight of the driveshaft so it can collapse really easily exerting the minimum amount of pressure on the gearbox, to stiff a spring will put pressure where its not needed ;)

everything can be improved upon...
