    What is the difference in weight between the two?

    Overal weight and maximum HP capacity would be the difference. As to driving it, you probably wouldn't note much difference, if any at all. If anything, the difference, which would impact either unit, would be going from the OEM companion flange setup to the 1350 U-joint. That's what I notice the most in light throttle/low speed applications... The "clunking" as now there is no cushion provided by the rubber doughnut between the flanges of the OEM setup.

    the cf driveshaft and 3.91 gears made driving my car much easier. It was kinda a pain in the ass before with the lightweight flywheel.

    I haven't driven mine all year. About to take it on a 1000 mi drive though on sunday.

    I've got several brake jobs coming up.

    1) Rears on the Caddy, so I ordered some Powerstop Rotors and Hawk 5.0 HPS pads the other night. Got them from AutoAnything.com, which had 10% off rotors and 15% off pads. So ended up paying <$300 for everything (which for Brembo parts is awesome I think).
    2) Fronts on the Impala need to be done
    3) Rears on the Suburban
    4) All 4 on the RGC.

    You will have to let me know how that works out. How many hours you think it will take to clean them after that.
