American Driveshaft - Marietta

Hey guys wanted to see if anyone has used this place before. I need to get my rear driveshaft rebuilt, it's a one piece with a slip and stub that is absolutely shot. I called these guys earlier in the week after doing some google searches and they seemed like good guys who know what they're doing.

I read some online reviews and they were not so good though. Anyone used these guys, or have another shop that they have used. I'm actually a good ways south of Atlanta, but willing to travel a good bit to get someone that knows what they're doing and runs a decent shop.

David

Try drive shaft services. Its about 15 minutes up the road from the other one you listed. They have been around for a long time and pretty much everyone around here uses them.

Thanks for the tip. I called up there this morning and they seem pretty reasonable. Hopefully I will be able to get up there soon, can't take the truck over ~60 without wicked vibrations.

I have used American drive shaft before. Let me tell you, you hase quiet the balancing machine in his possesion. and can balance damn near any shaft. The tech school 1/4 mile from there uses him too. I attended the school (chattahoochee tech) and we used him to balance countless drive shafts, includuing some import stuff. He did a good job and didnt take us for a ride.

Good to hear. He seemed like a good guy, but the online reviews had me worried. This guy is being easier so far because he will do same day work, and has some Saturday hours.

I think this is the place I used. Up on top of a hill? Of so that's the same one, I had a good experience.

I appreciate it guys. I will let you all know the outcome when I get up there. I live in LaGrange so both places are about 80 miles away. Looks like I will have to take a day or two of work to get it all taken care of.
