I use Surge Friction in South Holland Ill. They been there since the 1950's and have a good reputation. Not sure on Midwest but I'm sure they aren't bad.

I use Midwest driveshaft regularly for vehicles and equipment at work mostly because its convenient with then being 2 miles down the road.
Another shop I have used a lot over the years is Drivetrain Service in Bensenville IL. These guys are great and are my first choice but not easy to get to for me being I'm to the west and hate driving in the Jungle. (Jungle = city area)

Thanks for the info.

I ended up going to Suburban Driveline. They did a excellent job and are open on Saturday.

I swapped a 242 TC in for my 249, so I needed the driveshaft shortened. They cut and balanced it, did a great job, all on a Saturday morning.
