When Ford was using this driveshaft in Vans or Crown Vics, they were buying tens of thousands of them a year from the vendor. Large volume = low price. This enables Ford Motorsport to sell them cheap, because they can buy them cheap from Ford. Once Ford stops buying them from the vendor for production use, the price goes up because the purchasing volumes have plummeted. Ford Performance has to charge much more for them now.
Thanks for the suggestions, but think I might just spend $300 shipped for a new Jegs shaft. I don’t really wanna deal with running around searching at the junk yards and not be sure they’re even in perfect working order.
