Rotten Shop to Avoid
I know it is probably wrong to bad mouth anybody... but in this case , I needed to shorten a rear driveshaft, for my Cj3b, took it to a local shop , told him was for my Rubicon rig , he shortened it , charged me $165 , I twisted it 3 weeks later, he used thin wall tubing (.080 thick), took it back , he installed thick walled tubing (.120 thick), charged me $145 this time , no apologies, I twisted this one in less than 600 miles, ...I'm not running anything extreme , just a V6 and Sm420 , I took the mess to a highly regarded machinest , he found that one of the splines had been machined off, and that driveshaft was welded 8 degrees out of time , I asked how he could tell that...he said by lining up the SEAMS in the MUFFLER TUBING that was used , you could measure it. I will gladly tell anybody that wants to hear , to avoid ADCO DRIVELINES in Placerville , Ca. ....I would go back in there to complain , but I'm afraid I would punch his lights out. Thanx for letting me vent.
