I swapped my 518 to a getrag in my 1993 dodge and the getrag was shorter, my truck was 4x4 though, but I assume the 2wd would be the same case

I cant remember the exact specs right now but it was enough that I had to have my driveline extended. I can tell you exactly how much shorter next weekend.

Hey, I measured the transmissions this weekend and the A518 was about 31.5 inches from the front of the bellhousing to the tail shaft and the Getrag was about 27 inches.
