Default 92 SC300 w58 driveshaft length?!

I'm currently piecing together a 5 speed swap for my SC, and I need some information on the stock drive shaft. I was thinking of having a custom drive shaft made, but I do not have the measurements. I want this swap to be 1 shot 1 kill. Can anyone help me out"?

i would like to know this as well. I have the front half of the driveshaft, but I'm not sure what I need in terms of the rear half. Is the rear half the same in all sc300's and even 400's? maybe even IS's?

^^ That is the picture the driftmotion advertises for their single piece driveshafts. Thats how they want you to measure it. It shouldnt matter if it is a w58 from mk3 or sc300. I really gave it a deep thought about getting that driveshaft but i will wait till i upgrade to a r154 or v160 whatever money allows and then get that driveshaft.
