    www.highangledriveline.com has some pretty awesome shafts too. I'd love to be able to get one of his 1350 CV shafts, just don't have the cash though. :D

    i have one of them, got it for like 20% off when they had the new shop sale thread going on, they did a great job on the shaft but for some reason it was a bit too long and the shaft would bind, i know i measured it correctly (maybe with the drive flange a different length then the yoke?) instead of sending it back i just used it as an opportunity to move the rear axle back. Very happy with the shaft now but if i could go back and do it again id probibly go through somebody cheaper

    driveshaft or axleshaft? i think he means axleshaft. if thats the cse the best upgrade is by a company called GM, its called a 14bolt:D And the best part you an get em for under a 100 bucks.

    I too think he means axle shafts.

    If you don't go with above mentioned 14bolt, Superior Gear makes some quality resonably priced axle shafts for the 10bolt. I'm running them in my 12bolt.
