Can anyone confirm if entire tailshaft unit and centre bearing are interchangeable ? Im thinking centre bearing maybe, but concerned about length.

To what kind of body?

Typically in the past for Commodores if the tailshaft splits the front half is engine/gearbox specific and the rear half is body type specific. Can't really confirm for VT onwards tho as I haven't dealt with them.

You can't always mix and match either. The two halves have matched splines. Sometimes you can get lucky and the splines are machined close enough to one another that you can mix and match. I've tried it before - it's luck of the draw.

If they both have the 4l60e I'd be very surprised if they're not interchangeable.

Thanks for the replies anyway guys.
I'll shelve this one in the 'too hard ...' and fit new centre bearing.
Cheers
