    Driveline not centered

    Has anyone had this problem with their car? My drive line is not centered on the body or put it anyway, the body’s drive shaft tunnel is not centered over the drive shaft. So when installing a larger diameter drive shaft, it becomes very apparent and just about causes an interference problem (there is about 1/16" clearance).

    I thought maybe I installed something wrong so I went back to pictures I took before disassembly and sure enough the old drive shaft was not in the centre of the tunnel.

    So what is the solution besides going to a smaller diameter drive shaft or back to the original drive shaft? Do you hack away at the body support arch or do you get a custom made transmission cross member support to move the engine/transmission over an inch?
