What driveshaft do i need?

I have a S13 and I am converting auto to manual with SR swap. Some people are saying use only the upper half of a manual drive shaft and others are saying use the whole driveshaft. I do not have ABS and i want to know if I need the whole driveshaft or just half and do I need the S13 ABS or non abs shaft? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Your gonna need a s13 manual non abs driveshaft, the whole thing. It doesnt matter if it came from a sr or a ka as long as its a manual.

If you really want to get serious, get the aluminum one piece from Enjuku Racing or drive shaft shop. I got it and love it.

The actual points where the drive shaft mounts and lengths differ depending on Manual or Auto and ABS or Non-ABS.

ABS = shorter rear section
5 speed = longer (I think) front section
