I run a Tom Woods front and rear, great quality and they are very helpful. If I ever need any more built I will buy from them again.

I have Tatton shafts front and rear of my truck. They are better quality than a Tom Wood's IMHO...I compared mine to a buddy's Woods and the Tatton shaft just 'felt' beefier, for what it's worth. Even more interesting is the fact that the Tatton shaft had less weight on it than the Woods shaft.

The fact of the matter is this...they both use the same parts and the shafts themselves are welded using a jig...a machine is used to balance them, just like a tire machine - so...what are you really paying for?

I run tattons CV and straight shafts! great customer service and fast shipping out to me in Hawaii. I only went with Tattons due to the price diffrence from Tom woods. I'm very happy and pleased!

Check out Carolina Driveline. Similar to Tom Woods but much cheaper.

I'm bringing this thread back from the Grave!

I just came across Tatton driveshafts while researching for a replacement, is everyone that has one still happy with theirs?

I'm running a Tatton for my rear DS, better price & extremely happy with it. No worries about it breaking. Planning on buying one to replace my stock front DS.

I think you are paying for the "Tom Woods" name & all the advertising. Others that run TW are pleased as well & have a fancy sticker on their bumper.....

I have been running my CV HD rear and long travel HD front Tom Woods shafts in my Jeep for 3 years now with zero issues. I do a lot of sand drag racing with 33x15" paddle tires and lots of burnouts on the street which have resulted in smoked clutches and severely broken transmission parts, but the driveshafts have been flawless with zero noticeable wear.
