I know they have to retube it but it seems a little high.

Or is that the going rate? I need to add about 5 inches to the rear one. What do you think?

I think you should cut the tube and sleeve it with the next size over. I've done it, worked great. If you want to get real tricky you can grind the welds off the ends and just install 1 new longer tube in it's place

Yah Mr. Driveline is good but you might get your stuff in a day and you might get it in a couple of weeks. Overall I think musselmans is the best place up here I had a driveshaft retubed there and it cost me 75 bucks :rotfl: :rotfl:

Yeah, mister driveline does a good job, but he is more expensive and like Eric said who knows when you'll get it back, musslemans has been doing them for about $75 in the same day, these are pretty short drivelines, a longer rear one might be more :thumb: 522-7601

Had mine done at musselmans too, they did a nice job and had to turn down the ends to accept standard tubeing instead of metric, charged me like a $150 to turn and lengthen the front and straighten and shorten the rear. Sounds to me like you are getting ripped off!!

I'll have to give the guy a call then. I had the place here shorten a driveline for my Chevelle a few years ago and it was $75.

It would be worth it to drive up there for the savings.

Thanks for the leads. :thumb:

Mr Driveline has hired some help and he is getting stuff done the same day. He has way better prices than Hosermans, Musslemans wanted over $95 for a fricken slip yoke for my jeep + shipping , and Mr. driveline hooked me up for $30. Musselmans also told me I was stupid for wanting to fix my DS and that only a fool would lift a jeep :angryfir: . I don't care if you drive a ford, chervy, dodge, sami or what ever, their attitude really sucks. Then they told me that they don't put "competitors" Ujoints into "their" DS. After all the crap I got from them, I told them that it wasn't "their DS", it was mine, secondly, they were just the monkies paid to work on it, and upon further reflection, they would not be getting my business, and as far as I was concerned their was no Driveline shop in IF. :angryfir: :finger: :firedevi:
