Thumbs up Way overdue thanks and props to a local company - DRIVLINES INC

After a frustrating debacle with another driveline place in the IE, I had a wobble in my driveshaft, so I contacted Wade King over at www.Drivelinesinc.com (949) 951-9673 on a weekend with my problem. He wrote back the same day and told me to bring it in Monday.
I soon remembered that I met Wade at the F-100 Nats off the 91fwy a few years ago, and was impressed by his Patriotism, and found out he was a fellow Marine, so we hit it off really well.
Well come Monday morning, I took it in to him. I walked in and we talked a bit, he went outside checked it out, and as he wrote me up a work order, I told him I'd be waiting since I didn't have a ride back to my house. He took his keys and tossed them to me! I was shocked that he actually let me, a stranger (other than we're brothers by virtue of the Corps) drive his nice custom van home.
When he got into it, he caleld and told me of three different options I had to get it fixed. We discussed it, and a couple of hours later he told me to come pick it up. I won't say what he charged me, but lets just say that he was way more than reasonable, and I won't ever hesistate to bring my baby to him and his shop again.

Thanks again Wade for the professional work brother!

Disclaimer- I wasn't paid for this write up, I didn it 'casue he deserved it!

Ummms is starting off with a positive reputation.
I have had a good experience with them too, I changed out my 4 speed for a 5 speed manual in my 63 nova so I had Wade shorten my alumnium driveshaft, I ended up breaking one of the welds on the shaft a couple months later and both wade and I didn't know If it was his weld or if it was the original welds on the driveshaft. So he just rewelded it and balance it for no charge. That was around 3 years ago.
