    Nope- never used them, but I've used Tom Wood's driveshafts twice. Once for my rear driveshaft and once for the front. They had a lot of options to make a better/stronger/safer unit.

    I'm thinking I might need to modify my front shaft with the additional droop the ORD front springs will provide.

    Nope never heard of them. They never did any of mine when I was in Cali. That's been a long time ago. Seems I used a co called Driveline Specialists.

    Post up some pics and rate your overall experience with them. Probably need to do driveshafts one of these days.

    Was this for your front driveshaft? I'm thinking I will have to modify mine for the ORD springs as I think the axle wants to drop out farther than the driveshaft will allow. (still need to complete my lift and take measurements)

    Here’s a pic of the driveshaft. I’m really happy with the quality and execution. Took 3 weeks to get to my door in Kentucky from California. I will be installing it this weekend. I have some tcase sealing to do before I fit it in.

    This is for the rear. I have ORD springs. 6” total lift. ORD custom 6” spring in front and 3” shackle flip and 3” customs ORD spring in rear. I still need to get a front driveshaft, but I will be using a local drive line shop to retube the front. Much less money that way.

    ill follow up with yall and let yall know. right off the bat the seem like a good company. he knows his stuff for sure. one thing I liked was that he understood that I'm not ready to throw a np205 in the truck. I had to use my 208. a lot of driveline shops don't understand that you can modify the slip yoke to accept a double cardon joint. so that was cool.

    well, plane and simple I will be using them again. my blazer is finally ride as smooth as melted butter. a CV style driveshaft in combination with ORD custom springs literally make this thing glide over washboard dirt roads and run like a new truck on the highway. mission accomplished
