    DriveShaft Shop Axles - Group Buy

    A few have contacted me asking about DSS axles so I thought I would throw it out to see how much interest there is.

    What are Drive Shaft Shop axles? One of the few badass axles made that fit our cars. I have used them for year and put them through hell. If you read my project log, yes I've broken a few, but in a heavy car on a 26" tire and a grabby twin disk clutch. I have yet to break one on the 24.5" tire that didnt have 26" tire hits on it. DSS used to carry axles for our cars and no longer do, but they still make and service them. Check out their website www.driveshaftshop.com

    They make two levels for our cars:
    -Level 3 - 4340 Chrome Moly ends and center bar
    -Level 5 - 4340 CM ends with upgrade center bar to 300M

    ALL of the axles are unequal length and with a proper alignment, torque steer is not an issue.

    They also make two sizes:
    -A,E,G,H,J,K,P
    -L-Body
    ***Minivans not yet an option, but if enough interest this may be possible?

    Price? List price is on L5 is $1000/pair. If we get enough for the GB, should be $800/pair.

    Warranty? They should be covered by their 1 year warranty but this will be confirmed.

    Please list as following example:
    1. Username - level - size
    1. BadAssPerformance - L5 - G

    In traditional GB fashion, please copy the previous list ands add your name next. At this point (since we do not yet know the price) your name on the list means you're down for ~$800 set of axles (plus shipping) but all will be reconfirmed once we know the price.

    They only sell unequal length sets. I could probably talk them into selling two shorts, but really for drag racing, the U-Joint becomes the next weak link so you would have to eliminate it with a straight shaft

    Just want to throw this out there, I have a set of L5's and they are killer. I launch my car very hard and they take the power in stride. I called earlier in the winter about getting tone rings installed for traction control and they said no problem just call get an order number and send them in. Great product and customer service.

    Re: DriveShaft Shop Axles - Group Buy

    Aren't the pass axles in equal length setups the same as the driver side?

    I need a set of axles for my Lebaron so I won't be scared of running slicks but not sure when I could swing $900 for them. Things are going well for me at work, so I'll be keeping an eye on this.

    Yes, the PS axle in the equal setup is the same as the DS axle. The weak link is the u-joint yoke

    The driveshaft portion of the I shaft is also a weak point...I sheared two of the tubes.

    I can probably get SRT-4 axles grouped into the deal too if there is interest. Obviously those cost a little more tho
