Best drivelines...

So, soliciting thoughts on where to order up a couple of new drivelines. Probably do double CV in front to help with some very minimal driveline vibration at 60mph plus.

Who's still making good driveshafts? Tom Woods? Who else? Thoughts? It's been a few years since I've had to look into it.

Ready, set,...suggest!

I'm sure Woods are very good.

I would also check with South Bay Driveline in San Jose,Ca.
He has done work for me a while back.

Just got a Woody for the front and had 6 States rebuild my rear. Literally just finished installing them 30 minutes ago. The Woody looks to be of exceptional quality, but wouldnt go back to 6 States. Took 3 weeks and they still installed the wrong joints during the build. Had to go back and buy another 1310-1350 joint.

Tom Woods Rocks

Called Woods and they helped me determine the angles, supplied the proper shims/wedges for the rear correction with lift and made two excellent drive shafts, both doubles at the T-case...they are very knowledgeable and very quick on delivery...highly recommended!

Thanks guys. I've done Woods before, but have heard some complaints as of late regarding them. Always try and see what the recent word on the street is for experience. I'll probably give them a call and see how fast they can get me two new drivelines.
