Half shafts

Im looking for some half shafts that are at least 50mm shorter than the ones in my 500sec. Would shafts from a w123 be shorter and would the outer cv have the same spline?

Hi to the New Zealander without a name :laughing6: ,

I guess you will have someone make that shaft for you. It would be pure luck to find one. I thought - lengthwise - a 350/450 R107 SLC shaft would fit my 500, but it didn't. Length was alright, but the diameter for the connections was different.

Unless you have someone who has shafts lying around - and you can try - I don't think you'll be lucky. Are there no specialists to shorten/lengthen and balance shafts where you are?
