Went to the local yard to get some odds n ends from the 3 thunderbirds they have, and i had to walk across 4-5 mark 8's was wondering if the aluminum driveshaft would be a direct replacement for my 97 4.6?

Yes, but the preferred driveshaft is the 1993 Mark VIII that doesn't have the rubber vibration elimination joint near the rear joint.

Good to kno. Doing a vehicle inventory right now. Any other parts I could / should salvage from.the mark 8?
I swapped the whole rear sub-frame from a Mark VIII into my Bird and saved over 50 lbs of weight; the LCA's and the pumpkin on the Mark VIII are aluminum.

You could also grab the rear lower control arms and differential out of the marks they are aluminum.
