title says it all, looking to have my TG long spline kit put in
Boulder did a nice job on mine. I had some vibes but thought it was my pinion angle before. Could have been cause it went away with the new axles. now i have a vibe and am looking for a new place to go too. I never thought Drive shaft builds would cost so much. To have mine rebuilt the first time it was like $400!When my rig was first built with the SAS/lift and dual T-cases Jacob went to Driveline Service of Boulder. Like Doug with the DS shop he went to, I too was disappointed with Driveline Service of Boulder. I spent a ton of money to get those shafts done and they didn't re-build the CVs.
Recently, I had my rig in up at Addicted Off-Road and Scotty took my rear DS to his drive shaft guy and had them rebuilt and rebalanced. I've been pretty happy so far.
My rear DS was a bit more than that and my front was around $800.Boulder did a nice job on mine. I had some vibes but thought it was my pinion angle before.

Yeah, I had a feeling that I was paying too much.I got both of mine done for less than $500. That included being re-tubed with thicker material, machining my rear CV joint for higher clearance, and a new carrier bearing. That joint now has at least 35 degrees of angle in one direction, way more than stock 84-85 CV's. I don't remember if I had new u-joints thrown in or not. I also had him install my Marlin long slip at the same time.
I did the same deal but I had the long spline front section. The front was an 85 shaft had to swap the tg part on and retube it in 120wa the rear shaft was an ifs front shaft needing retube and lengthened. Same tube.My rear DS was a bit more than that and my front was around $800.
Thats because I had 'em re-tubed to thicker walls and changed the length. The front I believe has an All-Pro Slip Yoke built in it. At least thats what Scotty thinks it is.
Regardless, I would have thought that spending that much bread would have included rebuilding the CVs. Guess not, unless they forgot to do it and I got charged for it anyway.
The have done a few for me and do good work. Just be sure and tell them your tire size and gear ratio.thanks everyone for the feedback! i ended up using driveline specialties and so far i'm very happy. dropped it off yesterday and was surprised to get a call this morning saying it was ready! they did good work and the price was very reasonable! assuming there are no vibes when i get it installed, i would definitely recommend them
