not sure what they use for driveshafts, but the "DOM" is the process they use to make the tubing. (Drawn Over Mandrel=great material properties for high pressure) :thumbsup:

you need to go to a metal place not a hardware store or welding shop
they will check it with a micrometer and get you fitted
