Dodge 04 Ram 1500 4x4 Truck Driveshaft
The driveshaft was as good or better than the original, all the bolts lined up with precision. The part and manufacturer were the same as the one I replaced and 500 dollars less than the dealer wanted. This was an easy installation and a great repair solution!

I received the driveshaft faster than I thought, cheaper than anywhere else, and an exact fit. I will definitely order again from CARiD.

Purchasing Agent
This product was just what the doctor ordered. My vehicle works as though it was just driven off the showcase floor. Gentleman keep up the good work. In the near future have some consideration towards the replacement parts this could be of somewhat good customer relationship in the purchase of another vehicle make/model.

What I Got Out Of Your Product
The product looked ok until I put it on my car. The old shaft I took off had a piece that slide, would let the shaft either be longer or shorter depending on the position of the rear housing it was bolted to. After putting on the new shaft ,the car around 50 miles an hour would vibrate thru the whole car like a bad universal. Then at 70 mph the vibration would come back half as much. I don't know if the shaft is out of balance or it is binding between the carrier bearing and the universal joint. I have taken shaft off 3 different times and re positioned it on the trans output shaft and on the rear end. It still vibrates at these speeds. I am very disappointed, also paying this much for a replacement drive shaft. On original drive shaft you can not replace the universals, because of the way it is made from the factory. Has anyone tested this drive shaft to see if it work properly on a Suburu Outback. I waited almost 2 months to get your drive shaft because it was back ordered, and then vibrate worse then the old drive shaft that came on the car from the factory.

Outback Driveshaft Replacement
The replacement drive shaft arrived in good condition with a nice mat black finish. The u-joints have grease fittings to prolong their life and can be replaced with replacing the drive shaft. It had been balanced and counter weights were attached as needed. Installation was relatively easy. I removed the heat shields and the old drive shaft. The new one slipped into place without having to remove the exhaust pipe. It took less than two hours. After a few weeks of driving it is working well and the pesky noise is gone.

Subaru Outback Drive Shaft
Appears to be good quality with replaceable U-joints and center support bearing (which is what went bad on the factory shaft). Installation was a breeze. I have had no problems with it at all, fit and function are perfect. CARiD price was way lower than anyone else and it arrived earlier than I was told it would. I highly recommend them and this drive shaft.
