    ok gang, when the np205 goes in, I am gonna need/want new driveshafts, front and rear. Any opinions on who I should get them from? Right now I am leaning towards high angle driveline. Any votes for Woodys? other shops? If it was up to me, these would be the last shafts I ever own...so I want the good stuff. At the same time, I dont wanna spend $500 on a rear shaft alone...so economy is a factor to some degree. Any input is, as always, greatly appreciated!

    I got the new 1350 slip yoke rear driveshaft from high angle driveline for the 208's and 241's. No complaints at all, a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Had to work out a couple of bugs , but Jesse was more than happy to work with me no matter what it took even though some of it was due to my inexperience ith driveshafts and angles. Top quality and service ... sometimes a rareity in our hobby!?

    Jesse @ High Angle Driveline, will find out from you exactly how you plan to use your rig and how it is set up, and recommend the appropriate equippment. He will NOT try to sell you something you don't need just to make extra $$$. It is not very often that you find a vendor like that. I highly recommend him [​IMG].

    I think most of the companies that are mentioned here all good.

    Jess at High Angle is definately the most active on the boards for tech Q/A. He is a good guy. And he gives away a driveline once in awhile.

    I bought my SYE and 1 Ton setup from highangle.
