    You know I was going to order a new one from Denny's Driveshafts because they came this way.
    But I found a local shop that was a bit cheaper. This just dawned on me that they might not PC them.

    I'll have to ask now.

    Today i got my power steering line squared away nothing fancy, i used the stock end's from a 2002 z28. Took them to a shop and had them put a new high pressure hose and fittings worked out great!
