Default West side - anyone use D&R Driveline?

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I'm in the GR area & need to have my front driveshaft rebuilt. I'd like to support a local biz, so have any of you had experience using D&R driveline in Jenison? I searched here & didn't find anything specific to their shop.

Appreciate the feedback, thanks.

Randy

They've lengthened/shortened the driveshafts on my CJ about 6 times now . . . always very quick turnaround and good prices.

they built two of my bronco driveshafts as well. i twisted them like pretzels. i worked at Valley truck parts at the time and they made my next one which hasnt had any issues yet. youll get better service at D&R than you will at Valley though.

I had them put gears & shafts in a 12-bolt from my Impala. They replaced the pinion yoke with the wrong one. I had to physically take it off from under the car and bring it in and put it on the counter to convince him it was different than the old one.

The do great work -
I have had them setup a few double Carden Axles - and tight tolerance Toyota Diffs ( after the HACKS at Valley Truckparts botched them up ).

I recommend them - or LENGER RACING.

Picked up my 1350cv shaft today after smashing it at the Badlands. Great work, Better balance then before I took it, and 1/3 the price that Valley wanted.
