I don't know if a 2nd gen is the same as a 1st gen but I know on my previous V8 S10 that was an 88 standard cab short box that had a 2.5 4 banger and a 5 speed manual, I used the original drive shaft with a long tail 350 turbo and the original cross member mount at the tranny worked also... As for your shortened drive shaft, what was it for?
I think if it was an auto trans the shaft will need to be longer with any 350 turbo tail length, not shorter... I also hear if you use a short tail 350T a Caprice/Impala drive shaft works in a short box truck...
87 S10 Tahoe Long Bed + Small Block 355V8 w/700R4 Overdrive = Fun!
