I'll second Denny's Driveshafts - they do nice work and within reason, but not cheap.

This is mine:

Two new yokes, a new input spline, new shafting and assembled in proper time plus 2 HD u-joints along with balance are never cheap.

Your alternative is to find a shop that does truck driveline work, bring them a rusty and pitted junkyard drive shaft, a well used input spline and let them try to make the yokes that may be distorted work, then add someones unknown brand u-joints, balance this claptrap and pray it's going to be a good deal for you.

Universal Auto, N. Pearl Street in Albany NY will do a decent job for about $225+/- using your junk yard parts and new Spicer u-joints and is my usual alternative to Denny's, having made up several for me in the past.

wrong, 300 bones for an all new thick wall 3" shaft, local with spicer joints and new ends, the trans yoke they'll tell you if it's junk..
they used my old just for measurment.. nothing old used.. no need to get from an out of state shop.

Call Magnus Racing Products in Danielson CT. He has PST (?) driveshafts; all new steel, 3" dia I believe; comes with new U-joints and a yoke. If you need a custom length; he'll order it for you. Expect it to be in the $200-$250 range. When you call; ask for Mike Sangermano. Tell him Nate from Auto Gear gave you his name

Mods: can I post the phone number?

Very good ans very reasonable. Just be sure you are on the same page with the length. I downloaded Denny's printable diagram on how to measure. Helped a lot.
