SYE from Driveshaft Superstore in Phoenix

Has anyone bought a SYE from this company? Any thoughts or concerns?

Short Shaft Kits

After you install the SYE you call them with the driveshaft lenght and they build one for you. All said and done it's about $600 for 40* SYE and driveshaft.

Being from Arizona, I haven't heard of these guys before. Most of the locals I know go to Phoenix Rack & Axle for their drive shaft needs.

Well I did a search on the BBB and they look to be legit, company was founded in 1964. Seemed really knowledgeable also, hope it all works out.

Don't buy from Them!!!!

I got my SYE and driveshaft form them and got shafted. The SYE kit is a kit you can get anywhere else. (nothing special) However I have broken 2 of there double cardins in the past 6 months (infirior parts). When I called to get replacement parts they placed blame on me and the Install I did. (Mechanic for the past 12 years). I finally got them to work with me on the parts and insted of $290 the charged me $250 for the parts. WOOPIE When other companies whould have stood behind there product (TomWoods) they made excuses. The second double cardin I broke they said the only way to fix it was to upgrade the whole driveshaft another $400. Oh by the way I wasn't even wheeling when the second one broke. Be ware they also go by Arizona Drivelines, Driveshaft superstore, Driveline solutions. They claim to offer high angle drive shafts. The way they make them high angle is by grinding down some of there parts thus making them weaker.

Thanks for the input Jbone, I already ordered the parts and I am hoping I have no troubles. I will keep you up to date and keep your advice in mind. Sorry you had all that trouble though.

Not a problem. Hopefully you'll have better luck with them than I did. They even mentioned that the could have gotten a bad shippment of double cardins. Who knows. Any way good luck and keep us posted.

I had the exact same issues as jbone when I had a shaft built from them. I wouldn't worry about your SYE. They get them from the same place as everyone else. It's not something they build themselves.

I think I just made a post about this company in another thread on here also.
