Where is a good place on the East Side to get my driveshafts lengthened?

Try Dynotech in Troy. They've done a few for me and I've been happy with the quality and price.

Be careful though. Driveshafts are prone to rashes or oozing sores after getting lengthened in places like that. You are safer to do it yourself.

They have shortened and lengthened driveshafts for me, they do good work and they have the best prices around.

Never had a shaft made just balanced. And I have gave Valley Truck Parts some crazy designs to balance.

Cut your ears weld to pipe(s) add either a 4(+)or 6(*) stroke(at least 6" long stroke)with the median being in the middle then make other shaft so they slide.
Use 1/4" thick joints in your stroke
