    precision tool and machine (989)291-3365 will retube it

    i can't find in the phone book who balances them, but i know where they are at. they are on fairplains near the RR tracks in greenville on the north side of the road in a brown building. im going by there today and ill see if they still do it and how much :waytogo:

    all you need is a driveshaft with the size yokes you need, and a good slipyoke and they can make it any length you need.

    i have heard that a driveshaft can be too long, thus why GM put a carrier bearing in the long bed trucks with the sm465/np205

    glad you got it done in one day :thumb:

    my plans changed so i couldn't get to greenville. ill ask a buddy if he know the number for them.
