    Carolina Driveline customer service

    is AMAZING!!! But that's no surprise to most people here. They've always come through in a pinch for me. I've called with measurements on a Tuesday and picked up a custom shaft on the way to Harlan on Thursday, and they did it again this week.

    Sunday, the upper joint (double cardan) started chirping. Since I knew my world was going to get really busy on Monday, I pulled the shaft Sunday night. While trying to grease the center ball, I screwed up the fitting because I didn't have the right tool and I tried to make something work.

    On the way to the hospital on Monday, I called and talked to Steven (Stephen?). He said if I could get it there Tuesday he'd do his best to get it back to me by Friday. Luckily Taylor was able to pick it up from the MCJ meeting and get to Carolina Driveline first thing Tuesday morning. The fixed shaft showed up on my front porch Thursday afternoon!



    They even touched it up from the rock rash.

    The only complaint I have is they have switched to shredded paper packaging, on greasy things, and it sticks to everything...

    I really like how involved the staff is. They are one of the few companies/vendors nearby that participate in events, see and be seen.

    If you don't have a variety of grease fittings, go ahead and pick up one of these:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002R...viL&ref=plSrch

    It has several different lengths of the tips you need to grease the center ball and a bunch of other adapters and attachments.

    Can you grease the centering ball fitting with something in there without dropping the driveshaft off the tcase?

    No. Only way I see to do that is drill a hole (it could be small) in the skid and position the jeep where the fitting is pointed straight down to get to it.

    My skid has a hole ther for access, but my Greece gun tip won't seal on it at that angle. I was wondering if that kit had any sweet new doohickeys to get around that
