    nope steel- I literally just swapped the one out of my ls1 for my aluminum one maybe 2 - 3 weeks ago

    The steel one was a PITA to manoeuver with 1 hand at full length stretched out under the car, the aluminum one was a joke...there is a big difference, trust me...even more so with the 2 piece.

    I had them side by side, it is way more than 4 lbs

    Maybe the 4th gen shafts are different/more heavy duty?

    dunno- I doubt it though- you could definitely use that thing as a battering ram and take someone's front door down though

    driveshaft related question, are they the same length shafts on the t-56 and 4l60e LS1 cars?, like if I want one for my v6 is there specific ones I need to focus on?

    Yes they are the same length. You can go back to at least '85 and get the same length. Once you get into the 200R4, TH series, and 4 speeds you will get different lengths. I have an '00 on my '89.
