Took out my rear driveshaft as center support is ripped. Found 2 nice units at boneyard. One is stock dia and center support seems very stiff as in no side play for flex. It is a bit rusty but that’s to be expected. 2nd one is on an equinox and it is about 1/2” smaller pipe dia. Kinda looks like the aftermarket style. it is nice and black as the paint is not rusted off. Center support has a bit more wiggle but it is not torn or split like my old one. Any vote for which one to grab? They are both $16

I have pulled a couple driveshafts on equinoxes I got for headgaskets. sometimes the bearing is totally wasted. No rubber left at all. A few have had ok bearings but all have been rusty. My sis has 08 equinox she has had for 6-7 yrs. she had a gas tank leak and I looked at the driveshaft for giggles and I swear it was brand new. Not a speck of rust. She said it is original.
