There are several driveshaft shops around and in P-town.....
There is one in Tigard, but I cannot recall the name, but I can drive there ...LOL
Try six states distributors Inc... They been around for years.
6011 NE Columbia Blvd. 503-249-1010 They are a Spicer Dist..

Edit. I just Googled "Driveshafts in Portland Oregon" and there are a bunch of shops listed.

What happened to your Tom Woods?

scoobyjeep 07-25-2013 02:02 PM

the u joint took a shit, the cardan joint centering pin we bad, and did damage to the hard parts, so my choice it to have the shop piece on together using some of mine and their spare parts, for 350 or the build a new one for 450, thats way more than other places so far,.... just looking for best optiong, i'm not 100% on the quality if the drive line this shop would make

Oh, I went to the Potter Webster in Portland. I didn't consider going anywhere else because I didn't want to be driving all across the city and the pricing was fair to me. The real selling point to me was the 24 hour turn around. In fact I dropped in first thing in the morning and it was done that afternoon but I could not get there before closing. They shortened my front shaft and lengthened the rear along with balancing, etc. for less than the cost of one new shaft. I guess it can't hurt to ask how much and how fast. After all it's your money:)

Good luck!:)
