I use Dennis because he was local since I was living in holland at the time. To be very clear I have no axe to grind with his workmanship and zero issue with pricing just dealing with Dennis is painful and would rather have a root canal. Hell after numerous phone calls and drawings back and fourth telling me my front shaft design wouldn't work 12 years later it's still going strong.

So I'm going to necro bump this, because they're building my driveshaft for my C10 now.

I had to have 2 arguments with the guy about it having a 3r ujoint. It does, he says impossible.

Then he tells me he can't warranty it, I ask how he can warranty it, he says he doesn't warranty anything aftermarket lol. Then what's the point of bringing it up??

Also told me by Friday, now it's by Monday.

So, I'm hopeful that it works out, looks like people who have one were happy. The experience hasn't been terrible, but so far it's a solid C grade lol.

Well, I'm not sure if I was unclear or what, but I measured center of ujoint to seal flange, 61", and they cut me a shaft that's about 1.5" too long. Or maybe I have the wrong yoke on here,idk,it doesn't bottom out.

So I guess I'll take it all the way back to GR and see how they want to handle it.

Are you at ride height or at full stuff? I always give them two dimensions, fully extended and fully retracted. They can set the slip anywhere they want as long as it covers my required range of motion.

It's also not installed, that's as far as the yoke goes, it doesn't fit.

I measured according to his instructions on the website, seal flange to center of ujoint at ride height, told him I needed a counterbored yoke for a 4l80, which I got. He just got the length wrong.
