Truckworks built me a driveshaft for my RX7 when my U-Joint gave out. They did awesome work, built to handle 500+ torque. Only cost me about 350...

Built from a nissan king cab shaft, with the RX7 yoke on the transmission end. The other end bolted up to the yoke on the diff, and the Nissan shaft had the right size bolt up piece that fit. It was very nice work.
