    Where are people buying custom driveshafts, local or online, and if online where?

    I had a 727 giving me issues so swapped in a 904 I had around and obviously need a new longer driveshaft. It is a fairly mild built 360 bracket car, I'd buy someone else's if they've upgraded. TIA

    Just like leaf springs I've always found local large truck shops to do driveshaft work.

    All depends on the power and intended use for the car if you have one made by a local shop or not. I wanted a driveshaft/yoke/u-joint assy that wouldn't be the weak link, lol. I'm sure it's overkill because the tires are the actual weak link (traction I mean).

    I've had driveshafts made for daily driver type cars by local machine shops, and they always were just fine.

    CCI Drive Line built mine brand new when I swapped axles last year. They're in Algonac Michigan.

    I can't speak for all shops but I'd trust a driveshaft made by any truck shop I've used just as much or more then most online sources.

    Thanks all, that's where I've gone before local truck / driveline shop. Guess I'll be going back. I honestly was trying to be a bit economical shall we say aa I'll probably go back to the 727 when I get it rebuilt.
