Best source for custom length driveshafts?

Need custom length driveshafts for my D90 LS3 project. One is an inch too long and one is an inch too short.

What is the best source with upgraded ujoints?

I have them made locally all the time. I provide the measurement flange to flange on the truck and take them the old shaft. They put it in a lathe and cut the old tube out and make it the needed length. They replace the U joints if they have any wear @ all. The one I had done last week was $120 (didn't need ujoints). I dropped it off @ 3pm on Thursday and got a call 9 am the next morning that it was ready for pick up.

Most metropolitan area's have driveline shops. DC/Baltimore area had multiple when I lived there for instance. Unlike raditor shops which seem to be rapidly disappearing, driveline shops are thriving.

Drive shafts are all made with Dana Spicer components from the USA. Take it to a local shop.

I have mine made at a local Fleet Pride Shop here in town. They generally always have the parts in stock and I can usually pick up the same day.

I googled it and you have one in San Antonio.

GBR actually no longer uses spicer. They had bad luck with spicer failing too often. I called about one of theirs I'd had for at least 10 years and they wanted to replace it no questions asked.
