Where to get my driveshafts extended

Hey guys, I'm trying to get prices together for when I get home but I need to find a shop that extends driveshafts. Anyone know of any shops?

Might be a bit out of the way, but this is where I got mine done, and he does all the driveline work we need done at Vince's shop.

The one I was going to recommend is here in FSM...which would be close to 3 hrs. I'm pretty sure your not interested in that one either.

Well, I suppose if you don't wanna get out of the city into the countryside for a ride you could always try Superior Spring in NLR. I know a couple of guys that went there, and they were happy.

Which place in North Little Rock? I've had work done at Superior spring down on Broadway. They were pretty good but pricey. I also had a shaft built at that heavy truck place down off of 440 by the river port (can't remember the name). I liked them a lot, but it's been 15 years ago.

The place we found is Dynamic Driveline, but I will check Superior out as well.

RLDSL is starting off with a positive reputation.
Go to the semi trailer repair shop across the street from Truck Pro in North Little Rock . It's the last exit on the outer loop before the river heading toward the airport.
I wish I could remember the name of the place,( JUst remembered, it's Twin city trailer (501) 568-2185 1220 Baucum Industrial Dr, North Little Rock ) but they do incredible work there on truck driveshafts. I had them build me a custom set of shafts when I installed my 3 speed brownie and they built a set of shafts that are bulletproof ,which was no small feat considering the front one was stretching the limits on length for a single shaft, but he made it stout enough to where it balanced out and worked fine without twisting out, and I tow HEAVY,, the thing looks like it was made for a semi
Their prices on yokes and such are WAY lower than anyone else around ( which adds up to lower priced shafts )
