Yes Skain8 hates others companies because they do what every american company does make it cheap as possible.
If your going to order a Driveshaft Ask what Type of Joints used None of that chinese crap. yes it's cheaper but your gonna be hungry again later from the chinese joints. Goes for any maker Tom Woods is known to use these Gold Seal basically there own brand. Carolina will use damn near the same joints to keep cost's.
You cannot expect a drive shaft to have the best or recommended joints they going to use the cheapest possible unless you upgrade it.
When i ordered my Carolina DS i Specified DANA Spicer only it was nearly $50 more for these joints. I also changed yokes i had a local shop change the yokes for me.
