DriveShaft shop recommendation
 
I need to get my rear driveshaft shortened by Thursday and need a good recommendation for a driveshaft shop that does solid and durable work...

I did some research, but no definitive info so I go to the Gurus!

Edjubicate me please!

I've used Bill at Englewood Driveshaft quite a few times without issues, but I know others have mentioned in different posts about maybe having welds break in the past from there. A lot of people seem to like him though. I'm pretty sure Randy was telling me of a place he uses in Colorado Springs or something like that, so maybe he'll post up.

I have had 3 driveshafts rebuilt for our 80's done at Englewood Driveshaft with no issues as all. I also had a driveshaft repaired at Rocky Mountain Driveline with no problems. Whichever is closer. :)

+1 on Englewood DS. They have taken excellent care of me on repeated occasions, have given me 1 day turnaround, and corrected problems caused by other vendors. Inexpensive too.

Rocky Mountain Driveline is bicycling distance so I think I'll start there.

I can tell I have at least one loose u-joint on my rear driveshaft. Can anyone tell me what I should be asking for and what to expect to spend? Do I need to get the Toyota parts in advance or would the shop source the parts. What about the slip joint? anything to look at there? 225k miles on the rig. Probably original drive line parts.

I can't get past the image of Daniel riding his bike up to Tennyson with a driveshaft over his shoulder! Let me know if you would prefer to get a ride!
