Got my new chromoly DS from driveshaftshop. I don't like the quality of these welds. For those who have a steel or chromoly steel shaft from them, how do the welds look like? Would you install this DS on your car? I am a certified welder and this looks like either a cold weld or too fast of a pass to me. A nice smooth , flat bead would be better. But, if somebody has same quality welds on their DS and have not had any issues, I'll install it. Thanks.

Request an RMA, immediately. You may want to show them how to weld, too!

Thanks guys, I will get in contact with them tomorrow. I was expecting to see at least TIG welds. Flinstoneskid, who makes that DS? Mark, yes this is for the black car. DSS claims they balance their DS to 10K rpm.

I emailed them a link to this thread along with some pictures. Expressed how I feel about the product. I got an email back this morning saying they can't believe it got shipped out that way and will do whatever I decide. I think I'll just get a refund and see if Mark Williams or SPOHN can make one for me. Thanks

Hey does Driveshaftshop balance their DS's nowadays?
Back then when I asked them why I couldn't find any balancing wheights they said it wasn't needed because of the good quality aluminum they use

Glad to hear they are going to do something about it, those welds are terrible.

That first one should be sent back immediately... The second DS looks like it was machine welded. High quality looking piece. Im also interested in who makes it.
