    For those asking ... I just had my front retubed, cost me ~$100. Had to go longer than stock for the front 52" springs.

    If that's good or bad, I donno ... steel costs being what they are, I can't blame the guys. I picked 'em as (1) they're 5 minutes away from me, and (2) they could redo the shaft the day before I load up the K5 onto the trailer for BlazerBash. :doah:Now we'll see if the thing holds up or if I need some sort of high-zoot super angle deal. :rolleyes:

    not to bad. i work auto so the driveline guys give me a cut. i can have one cut down and balenced for 40-50 bucks. and longer with new tube around 80-100 bucks. so ya thats fair.

    I paid $145 for mine to get it retubed, but got 3" by 1/4" wall tubing so thats why it went up.
