    I know this has been asked before.. I lost the info I had for the guy I used last time in Middletown.. I'm gonna need my driveshaft cut, balanced and new joints installed.. Can anyone recommend someone in either Sullivan or Orange county?

    thanks

    I believe they are further up.. Rochester or Buffalo or something like that.. And little pricey for my budget.. At least for a whole new driveshaft.. trying to get it done for $100 or so..

    Denny's is about $325-350 for a complete balanced D/S. I hate to use our local shop, when one of those things come flying out from underneath, they tear so much stuff up on the way out, I kind of quit fooling with them.

    $100 would surely be nice,but the cost of solid u-joints ,a weld end with install labor and balancing the shaft will probably be almost double that. As an alternative why not call Shaftmaster Driveshafts? A 3" or 3.5" steel unit for $240.

    Last time I got it done by that guy, I brought it to him and he did it for $100.. but he worked out of his garage. Did a great Job.

    But, it's also been like 5-6yrs.. lol so..

    I'm gonna have to shop around.. I have gotten one off of MuscleMotorSports.com too.. That was like $110 to my door.. It was a 4" diameter in my size with 1350 yokes and joints.. Had to get conversion U-joints, probably added on another $40.. but it was already balanced. It was a Winston Cup Car takeoff.. Checked their site and they only have like 2.. I guess they aren't dealing with them anymore..
    Probably find a truck shop locally to do it.. We'll see.

    If you can be a little patient, I'm heading up to Albany NY this Thursday. I'm going to see a guy who races (stock/SS) all the NHRA national races on the east coast. He built my motor. Whenever I go in the shop, I always see him doing rear ends, motors, etc. I'll ask if he does them. If not, I'll find out from him who takes care of driveshafts.

    Universal Auto Parts in Albany NY. Look them up. The friend says they are great. If you want to have the work done, he says you could bring the shaft to him, tell him what you want and he'll take it over. He has an account with them.
