Shop for DS near Boston

So need the double cardone joint redone, have a friend on here who may be able to help (depending on his life) but also wouldn't mind getting an idea for a good shop in or near Boston (I'm closer to Dedham).

Mitchells is good -- I've had driveshaft work done there also.

Would be probably about 45 minutes drive from you -- not terrible. I've even talked to them, and they said "leave it on the step by the door".... Then pay, then pick up the same way, etc.. So you don't need to get there before they close.

That'd work if I could drive my vehicle without a ds but I can't haha

Did you call South Shore? Quincy is a lot closer to Dedham than Shrewsbury. Just about every wheeler South of Boston uses South Shore.

I did they were unsure on price (understandable) but didn't think they'd be able to do it right away where I can't leave my vehicle for a day or overnight. I'll be about half way there next week anyways.
