    Drive Shaft - Should I replace?

    I posted before asking about what type of transmission to replace my stock broken one with, and I think I will be going with Monster Transmission's Mega Monster, their middle class transmission. (http://www.eatmyshift.com) I am also replacing the torque converter with one of their brand models. However, after doing more reading, I have seen that the drive shaft is one of the next things to replace. Should I change out the stock driveshaft at the same time I replace everything else? I don't race the car, but I don't want the new tranny to tear up my rear end. Let me know what you guys think. And, money is definately an option. Thanks!

    The stock driveshaft is a weak drivetrain component and is usually replaced with a nitrous shaft or a chromoly HD shaft. Not very expensive and worth the extra peace of mind
