having a rear drive shaft re-tubed and a cv added(one i already have)and balanced $170.
tube will be thicker walled and O.D. will be 2 1/2"
seemed resonable to me.
any thoughts.

Jim,

Yes. I paid $120 to re-tube (lengthen) and balance my 40 shaft. In Denver.

Springs o-k?

HTH,
i'm sending it to rocky mnt d/l.
the 60 rear is about twice the length of the 40

springs OK ;)

i called around

and RMDL was the only guy who said that the first ting he does is straighten the tube.
nobody else said anything about that.

saw that thread, i'll definitly say something about that.

don't think i need the cardon(cv) on the rear, but i'm gonna have him do it anyways.

just to be :cool: haha
