Ok, don't label me a Moron, but... I am replacing the U-joints in my 70, and I forgot which way the driveline goes back in the car. Is it the solid end of the driveline to the front (transmission) or is it the side that has the smaller end that has a rubber seal between it and the driveline that goes forward? Basically my driveline is differant at both ends, one looks like it has a dampend end and the other is fixed and welded to the end of the line itself. This is my first Mustang, so be kind. My Camaro never had this dumb ass problem.

Slip yoke towards the tranny, solid end to the rear.
Not a dumb question.

If your drive shaft is the double tube type with rubber in between, the in between part goes
to the rear. The part that looks like a chevy drive shaft goes to the front, or trans. These
drive lines are not suited to high horsepower. If you upgrade to a "more than stock" power
level you might have a solid shaft made. Good Luck!
