thanks, but eh, its for the front and realistically i wont be going faster than like 40mph so blancing isnt that big an issue. its so much nicer to have a driveshaft i dont have to worry about bottoming out or popping out now though......

Who cares about the shaft, I want to see the welder...


I just got a Millermatic 210, and that freaking thing can burn some thick stuff! Fixed some farm stuff for a guy, and was buring deep into a 1" piston shaft. Love it, and now have the Hobart 175 setup for .23 for sheetmetal.

Hell of a deal if you ask me.
