Positive Experience with Tom Woods Drive Shafts

I had a vibe when accelerating, drove around like that for a month. Pulled my rear DS, it was gone. (Drove around in 4WD to move the Jeep). Ended up being my u joints in my rear DS, so I pulled all 3 u joints, replaced 1. I wanted to grease my DS, and pulled the spline apart from the dustcap/slip yoke. And I couldn't reassemble, it was too tight of a fit . Posted on here, couldn't find a solution.

I emailed Tom Wood's, and he communicated that they rebalance your DS for free as part of warranty. I shipped it there without 2 u joints to avoid the caps falling off and needle bearings falling everywhere. They needed those u joints, so I asked Tom to bill me for 2. However, as a gesture of good faith, he comp'd me those u joints and installed them (saved me from whacking away with a hammer to install in my garage).

All in all, it took 5 days. 2 days transit. 1 day labor. 2 days transit back. No more vibes. I was impressed with the daily communication with Tom Woods himself, and the turnaround time and quality of their work. So if you have a Tom Woods DS or thinking of a DS and want great customer service, I recommend them and for using their warranty. They repainted/refinished the DS black and came with hardware. And plenty of grease in the u joints and DS.
