The Drive Shaft Shop1531 South Main Street Internet United States of America
i have never felt like i should file a report about a company before but this company really burned me .
i contacted the drive shaft shop in feb. 2010 in search for a good price on a drive shaft for my street strip drag car (1970 monte carlo with a 454 bbc twin turbo) i got a price for a c/moly shaft with billet th400 yoke and billet pinion yoke with greasless spicer u joints i paid $720.55 for the complete set up by frank and made sure to repeat myself as to what i was going to be getting and frank said yes your going to be getting c/moly drive shaft with geasless spicer ujoints with billet th400 yoke and billet 12 bolt pinion yoke .
this is where i get ripped off a week later i call wondering if it shipped yet and they still did not ship my parts out so they got shipped out that day
when i recieved my drive shaft there was no billet pinion yoke and the th400 yoke they did send was a forged yoke not a billet yoke they painted the drive shaft and the yoke thinking this would hide the fact they sent me a forged th400 yoke ,
they charged me $175 for the th400 yoke and $150 for the pinion yoke i havent recieved , i called and called and called i could not get ahold of Frank the owner he avoided me, i spoke with Tad and another guy and i kept getting the run around they said they sent the pinion yoke and it was in the box with the drive shaft well the box was empty no yoke ,
at this point i started looking over the drive shaft thats when i was thinking if they could charge me for billet and send forged maybe the drive shaft isnt c/moly i have to take it to get it checked to find out but i did notice they are not spicer ujoints and the th400 yoke is not billet .
TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT they offered to send me the pinion yoke if i would accept the forged th400 yoke and ujoints or they can me a refund if i returned everything but after read that they have ripped people off i decided to take the pinion yoke that was missing and was forced to accept being charged for billet and spicer for forged no brand , IF I SENT IT ALL BACK i would not have gotten a refund and would have taken more of a loss ,
i have not installed any parts yet i need to have the shaft checked for balancing and the material its made of i also i have to buy a billet yoke and ujoints i thinking of just starting over buying from a more repitable company ,
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AVOID BUYING FROM THEM ,
AVOID THE PROBLEMS AND AVOID NOT KNOWING WHAT YOU HAVE FOR PARTS AND
NOT KNOWING IF YOU CAN TRUST THIS DRIVE SHAFT WITH YOUR LIFE GOING DOWN THE TRACK ,
YOU SHOULD GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR BILLET IS BILLET NOT FORGED
LIKE ORDERING A HAMBURGER WITH CHEESE AND GETTING NO CHEESE AND FINDING OUT ITS NOT ACTUALLY HAMBURGER ,GOOD LUCK
