Driveshaft-One Piece-Help

Alright I am absolutely DONE fighting with the vibrations that the stupid worthless 2 piece driveshaft causes. My driveshaft is a rusted out piece of POOP and Im thinking I need to replace the u joints and the carrier bearing.

I am wondering if any of you guys have put a 1 piece in place of the 2? I am in an 04 F250 Crew cab 156" wheel base its the harley edition. If any of you have had any made do you remember the length that you had to have it made?

I've got a CCLB and I don't have an issue anymore. Did u joints, carrier bearing and got it rebalanced. All good.

Mine is just a rusted out piece of crap though. I cant describe to you how badly its rusted out. I dont see how anybody could actually balance that thing and as soon as you did some metal would flake off and be unbalanced again so Im just done with it and want a single piece unit.

Not saying it's not possible to do, but most even well known driveshaft shops have a limit for lenght. For a CCLB you pretty much have to have a two piece. If you have a CCSB then you can get a one piece.

Yeah its a CCSB Harley Edition. I just got off the phone with a driveshaft specialty place in Texas...Lol I am 1/4 of an inch within their "safe" zone." Only problem is its pretty spendy.

Thanks for the information man I appreciate that. I had already contacted a driveshaft builder in Tulsa and the price was excellent. I will keep this posted for any that want to know how well this works.

I was experiencing a vibration at highway speeds when I would get on the interstate. Up to around 40 mph it is fine but past that it would start to get just a little vibration that you could feel in your feet and seat and it bothered the crap out of me. The price he quoted me for this driveshaft comes with new u joints and flanges at both ends. So its going to be a bolt up piece. So anyway I will keep this thread posted. I know how hard it was for me to find information on this.

I got my one piece driveshaft in the truck tonight. The guy did a superb job! Turn around was 2 days to my door! Completely eliminated any vibrations I had whatsoever!
