I just installed a Denny's HD steel driveshaft in my project car - the price included a new trans slip joint, both u-joints and, of course balancing. And it was painted a real shiny black. Delivered to my door for $286 - and for an out of stater, it would have been 8.75% less(@#$%*^ NY and Onondaga County sales taxes). The HD aluminum was about $100 more.
Inland Empire is about $100 more across the board.
