    Hey guys, my s10 is in need of new driveshafts.

    Mine are kind of rotted, Im thinking about starting with a different set altogether. Is there a junk yard in the chicagoland area that specializes in the s-a0's?

    Just go right to autozone or any place that sells that stuff and buy it there. They are warrentied. JMO but i wouldn't buy something like that from a junkyard.

    Try a truck part dealers. They can retube your shafts. The big cost is the ends which you still have.They charge you by the foot. It should be cheaper then buying new.

    D'ooh, I didn't finish reading the thread before I posted my reply....well for future reference...

    Since you are in the NW suburbs check out what these guys can do for you. I use them for u-joints and shafts. They can make you new ones or repair what you have. Good Guys. Lake Cook CV Joint, Wheeling Illinois.

    Did you call and see what GM wanted for the shafts?
    Keep the TRUCK PART DEALERS in mind when you need to replace drive line parts. We have a few medium / heavy duty truck part dealers in this area. If you ever need suspension / drive line parts try them first before the Stealer-ship. Spicier and Dana are used in many trucks and they may carry the whole catalog listing. One dealer even had a Sherman Tank sitting out front. Too cool.
