    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.

    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

    you never know what you get...

    when borrowing a used part.

    it got me back home, thats all that counts.

    did you get it re-built, or are you swapping the front to rear???
    WHATS UP!!!!! ;)
