    Looking for any feedback from anyone who has done business with driveshaftsuperstore.com. And yes I am aware most people here do business with Jesse at highangle however these guys are quoting me 200dollars less and I am on a very tight budget. Thanks in advance.:laugh:

    I don't know about there GM prodcuts but in the Jeep world they have a pretty poor name. Out of round shafts, bad welds, out of ballance, cheap parts are just some of the problems with the shafts they turn out for Jeeps. This is not to mention the poor customer service.

    Some of this was hear say and some was first hand experience. I am sure others will have some input also. If I could not use HAD I would find someone local to do my work.

    You might try South Bay driveline. They are not too far away from you ( in San Jose). The DS he built for me has been working very well since I installed it the day before I left for Moab. He gave me very simple instructions on the measurements he needed to build it and when I got it home it fit perfectly.

    It wasn't inexpensive though. I'd be careful with going cheap on that kinda stuff. You don't want a 4 foot piece of steel rotating at 1000's of RPM to fly off when you're driving down the freeway. :)

    Isn't there a good driveline in Tracy?
    I think Tracy driveline is their name.

    Well do you have a 241 or a 208?
    You can convert either with parts from a Dodge Tcase and then just get a regular CV shaft made, it will cost you less and end up with a better product.
    :D

    Jason, like i told you the other day, the short SYE will work on your t-case even though it is a passenger drop since you have the electric speedo. If yours was the mechanical speedo then you could only use the standard SYE kit.
