    I just ordered a front shaft from High Angle Driveline. With the 1 ton CV ,1350's & extended spline. He banged me for over $580.00. That seemed a little high to me.

    You get what you pay for and you just paid for high quality parts. You'll get over the shock factor when it arrives. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh yeah no doubt. I'm not questioning their work and product. Thats why I called them in the first place. But I was kinda hoping to get the rear one at the same time but I wasnt expecting the front to cost this much. I had my rear one made by Tom Woods and it cost me 3 somethin'. Granted it aint as beefy as High Angles would be but I have yet to break it.

    Oh well. It's only money.

    Just remember, a year from now when it still works great you will no longer care what it cost. You will just be glad its spinning away.

    Thanks everyone, I'm sure it'll be worth every penny. I went to High Angles site looking for warranty info but didnt find any. I forgot to ask about it when I called him. Has anyone ever had to get 1 fixed? I'm sure they stand behind their product. I was just wondering what the actual policy was if any.

    That's insane. I'm going with my local guy again. $600 for a driveshaft is just too much. $300 is more like it. There is simply no way I could find it in myself to pay that for a driveshaft.

    I suppose that's right. I just cringe at the idea of spending all that moola on a shaft.

    I look at a driveshaft as a "rebuildable" item Unless you wrap it around a boulder, as opposed to tires which could cost about the same but are basically a throw away item when the tread is gone. Also, that driveshaft has real resale value. And as was mentioned, quality costs, you get what you pay for.

    1310 sucks. If you wheel at all go 1350 or 1410. The 1350 with flange from Jess is well worth the money and wont leave you stranded on the trail (or on a city street like mine did). DO NOT settle for 2nd best. I did and thats why I no longer have a wheeling machine.
