    My local driveshaft shop- Oliver's Driveshaft. the guy is AWESOME. last time i needed a shaft shortened, rebalanced, 1350 yoke put on and new u-joint it cost me $55 for everything, i brought it to him 3pm, he was done at 4:30.

    It's amazing though when you walk in there- there are u-joint with heads literally bigger than my fist. way bigger.

    Why does everybody seem to have a "local driveshaft shop?" /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif I don't think I've ever seen a shop in my life dedicated to just driveshafts. Anyway, looks like a nice purchase! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What type of vehicle did you get the tranny and transfer case out of.I am thinking of doing the same thing to mine.How hard was it to install the clutch pedal?
    Driveshaft work looks awesome.

    well- a shaft without the yoke would not do very well /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    i can't afford the SYE yet, but when I can, i alreay have a CV joint for it and most of the tubing and just need a slip joint- and guess what- he can take my tailshaft, and put it on the tubing and use the slip yoke and tailshaft as the slip joint, so when i do the SYE i'm ready to go! that's why i got a CV /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
