    What tranny do you have? I have a couple front shafts for $25 each. I need to run out and measure them though.

    30.5" collapsed and 31.5" collapsed on the 2 I have for sale. Cheaper/easier to shorten a driveshaft than to extend one though. I'll be down next month for the portland swap meet too.

    Are you getting quotes for shortening your shaft? Its not a difficult job. There is a guy in Everett, WA that I use that charges $50.

    Yeah six states wanted 50 for shortening, it just seems like a scam almost though. Chop ,weld, balance, done. Sounds like a 100 and hour. Then to lengthen they charge per inch of tube...:rolleyes: By the time they're done you've gotten the shaft alright...:eek1:

    Rob,

    J&H in Portland (think they're down on Powell around 82nd) is supposed to be much cheaper. Ask Shannon their number/location. Six States is good but spendy.

    I called everybody I found in the yellow pages and sixstates was the cheapest...:doah: I try to find J&H and also I think I'll cut down and weld my front myself, that'll save me 50 bucks right there...

    If your careful you can do it with a chop saw and a big hammer. Next trick is to get it back together though. Have you ever seen one done?
