Driveshaft rebuild...

Looking for a place in the Chicagoland area, (more specifically the western burbs, just outside of Chicago), to rebuild my Tom Woods CV shaft.

I know Suburban driveline, and they quoted me close to $325, and that just seemed really high.

Any chitown Jeepers out there know of another place that you would recommend?

Thanks!

doesnt a new woods drive shaft only run about 350? also.. dont woods shafts have a lifetime warranty? Have you talked to Tom about sending it in to him? a buddy of mine sent his off to get rebuilt and had it back like 3 days later.

I was thinking about that.... If I do get it rebuilt around here, they will use Spicer ujoints and NOT TW gold seal ujoints, which will effectively void the lifetime warranty. I'm going to call TW tomorrow. Thanks Nickit.
