'57 F100 Drive Shaft

Can anyone tell me what years have the same drive shaft and where I might find one? I have a really nice crease in my that causes terrible shaking. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

if your slip joint is not worn out you could probably have that one repaired for under 100.00.
I was surprised how cheap the three shafts for mine were to have repaired.

Driveline shop, not sure where you live, but most good sized cities will have several.

Often the same kind of places do repairs on big over the road trucks as well.

I found a place in Kansas City area called inland truck parts. They said they would be able to fix it and seemed like nice guys. We'll see how it turns out!

The shaft was damaged so bad they are going to have to retube it. It's gonna run about $200 but I would have paid 10x as much to get rid of the terrible vibration.
