Driveshaft Dust Guard

Taking a bit of a circuitous route to fix the drivershaft U joints. The old drivershaft is on the right, and has a dust guard of sorts. The new driveshaft is at left, and does not have said dust guard.




Having a hard time finding this part, and while it looks like I can grind the fasteners off the old one, I'm not sure how I would put in on the new one.

I'm kind of hoping that I don't need it, but that may be wishful thinking.

Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers.

Could you circle what you are calling a dust guard?

Sure:




It's the sort of collar looking thing. At the top of the area I boxed, there is a circular fastener, and another one like it on the opposite side. I'm sure I can grind these fasteners out, but then I'm unsure how it would attach this collar / dust guard to the new drivershaft... or if it's even necessary at all.

Cheers!

Only the Factory drive shafts have the dust shield,after market ones don't....If I am in your shoes I just install the new one and call it done.

Awesome, thats what I was hoping to hear. I was surprised how difficult the driveshaft bolts were to remove.

Cheers, thanks.
