    Has anyone here done business with Denny\'s Driveshaft ?

    I'm asking because I bought a HD 1 ton drivehshaft from them for about $300. Excellent quality, plus they say that if you need any work done on a Denny's-built driveshaft, the labor is free and you get 40% off parts.
    Well, I need my 3 month old driveshaft lengthened because I am switching to a LWB from a SWB. I called them to see how much it would cost me. They are giving me the shaft by saying that labor is not free to lengthen the shaft and that it will end up costing about $200 including shipping! The website itself says free labor, the papers I got say free labor, but they want to charge me labor. I'm not sure if they are deducting 40% off for parts or not, but I doubt it since they are screwing me on labor.
    Am I just lucky, or do they do this to everyone?

    Perhaps they mean that if you break one of their driveshafts that the labor to fix it will be free. Are there details on the invoice?

    BTW, I'm sure you could find a local shop in Houston that could do the work for you. And yes, the current tube will have to be tossed. You can't just weld in another piece to make the shaft longer. You have to cut out the old tube and weld in a new, longer one.
