What happened to the reply that I made a few days ago?

The El Camino driveshaft is exactly 9 inches longer than the sedan driveshaft. To install a TH700 or T5 in an El Camino, the driveshaft must be 3 inches shorter, or 6 inches longer than a stock sedan driveshaft.

The stock sedan driveshaft is 52.42 inches long. The stock El Camino driveshaft is 61.42 inches long.

I took about 2 5/8 " out of my stock drive shaft when I went to a 700R4.
