auto's have a balancer, and tailshafts from manual car's dont

although i could be wrong, send a PM to EVL098 to confirm as he went through this recently

well i just put an xr6 drive shaft in and it didnt have one on it, but its solid and rediculously big on the old one, i took it for a drive and its not out of balance from what i can tell, and it made a small difference compared to the old one

All manuals have them as well as Wagons.

Its similar to a harmonic balancer.

It takes on resonance and harmonics in the tailshaft.

Same reason theres a metal weight on the end of the manual gearbox extension housing.


Getting a Manual XR ally tailshaft is a pretty good score.

must take the vibration out at 240km/h.... :P

wouldn't a standard au ally tailshaft fit an e series ? or are they a different length ? because the arrangement is the same (non-irs)

That isn't quite right.....EA & EB1 never had the Harmonic balancer on the tailshafts.....although, they did have the rubber mounted weight hanging under the rear of the extension housing.
I thought the EB2 XR6 had a steel tailshaft, as did the EB1 XR8.

My manual xr6 doesn't have a ally tailshaft unless it is dirty cos it looks like a rusty steel one , maybe its Been replaced with a steel tailshaft, I'll have to check it out ,

I think only EFII XRs/Fairmont Ghia and EL XRs/Fairmont Ghias had the Tickford goodies which had the alloy tailshaft, weights or no weights I'm not sure.

EFI XRs/Fairmont Ghias didn't have them from what I was told.

Pretty sure it doesnt because the au block is shorter so the tailshaft is longer
