    Around here $75 to shorten and rebalance is normal, I would think that $100+ for lengthening plus balance isn't bad.

    It would have been more $ to retube and lengthen my old driveline, so i found one that I think was from a shortbed and had it shortened. Cost 95 bucks, and that was with a new 1350 yoke installed.

    There is a guy around here that trues and balances shafts for around $35 and he straightens them with heat. Pretty cool, and you get it back all clean with the joints full of synthetic grease. :D

    I got mine lengthened 4 inches and had a new yoke put in for $205... sounds like a pretty good deal for $105

    I just had a shaft done last week. I needed to go +2" due to lift and 14bff and to have it re-tubed was gonna cost $150. I just took a longer shaft in and had it shortened to my desired length, with one new joint and balancing it cost me $65.

    I paid $275 IIRC for my rear shaft. 4" tubing, new yokes at top and bottom, 1350 slip yoke, 1350 Neapco u-joints.

    I threw the stock toothpick in the garbage. :D
