I'm gonna be putting in a C6 transmission in my F-150 very shortly and was wondering who's a good place in SoCal to build a new driveshaft or to modify the stock one that that has offroad experiance and supports this sport?

What do you guys think, 1 or 2 pc? It's a 2wd extra cab shortbed. I have the stock 8.8 axle in there now and will be pulling 14-16" of travel until I link it down the road.

Thanks for any info.

JE REEL in Pomona...he does a lot of big dogs...Robby G and Riviera to name 2 off the top of my head. Speak to Jim, he is the owner. Tell him Davis Motorsports sent you.

I just had a driveshaft built by the Driveshaft Shop in Placentia. They're on Placentia Avenue just north of Crowther. Ray totally hooked me up with a killer deal.

I too used the Driveline place in Lake Forest. Had my S-10 shaft rebuilt and balanced there. Told them I was without a vehicle until they got it together and they had it done in a matter of hours. Same day service and no problems. Price was fair too. Wouldn't say cheap, but cheap ain't always cheap in the long run.

Try Inland Empire Driveline. They build good stuff. Ask for Nacho.

i would say inland empire is one of the best hands down, but they know it and it costs for the best. they do a bunch of drag race drive lines.
