Tips For Measurement:

  • Think –¬†SAFETY FIRST
  • Use stable blocking, safety jack stands, and vehicle lifts for safety
  • Mistakes are COSTLY!
  • Measurements are often as important or more so than the year, make and model of vehicle due to possible changes to the vehicle
  • ARIZONA DRIVESHAFT will provide products to client measurements – proper measurement is the responsibility of the end user
  • Measurement must be done with wheels, axels under normal vehicle load – Vehicle at level that is high enough to allow proper access for measuring – Proper angle of of the pinion
  • Measurement for long lengths by tape measure should always pull an inch at the begining of tape – the end of tape measures can give a false reading due to varing end construction
  • Long measurements should be done by two persons and pull tape tight during measurement
  • Measure small parts with a straight ruler (preferably metal) and / or a caliper (preferably digital) for greater accuracy
