B&L does semi trucks too. They can make anything you can think of.

Even replacements for those crappy dshafts on 80's centurion stretched broncos.

You have to know EXACTLY what you want. Walk in with a drawing/sketch that calls out the yoke sizes, compressed and extended lengths (center eye of u-joint to center eye of ujoint), tube diameter (outside) and wall thickness. If you are using a pillow block intermediate shaft, you need to know exactly where the centerline of your pillow block is going.

You need the sketch. Don't expect them to draw it up for you from what you are verbally telling them. Too much gets lost in translation that way.

Isn't this in Roseville, not Warren? like just east of Scheoner (sp?)

but yes, I've had good luck with them too, they've been around a long time too, had one made there for my first modified truck back in 1994, and as recently as last fall.

I bet that they do.

I originally took my driveshaft in to be rebuilt, he said I can build you a new shaft for the cost of parts and labor to rebuild your old shaft.

I said fukc it, just build me a new one.

Richards ended up giving me a junkyard driveshaft after almost 2 weeks. At least I got my old one back as a conversation piece.

How much was it to have that new one built?
