    Perfect timing on this video as I had the same exact problem with my Adams 1350 front shaft as soon as I eliminated the FAD. Checked the shaft and it has zero balance weights on it. Disappointed that after spending almost $700 on a driveshaft I need to pull it off and have it balanced.

    Wow, you paid less than $700? Now I feel like I got taken for a ride.

    Totally sucks and probably the last time I buy a brand name shaft.

    Just got a 1350 front and it had balancing weights on it. So far, no vibration.

    And, here's what Adam's charged me for two 1350 shafts.

    Obviously, you'd have to divide that by two but that still gets you $719.95 each.

    Crazy to think I would get grief for trying to save people some money or that I should somehow help protect a vendor that I BOUGHT parts from.

    So I went to my local driveshaft shop today to get prices on new front & rear 1350's.... I like the guy, he has always done great work for me in the past (rebuilding & balancing) ..... but I was really hoping to see the prices you show here.... He was very knowledgeable & helpful... and quoted me $675 out the door for the front and about the same for the rear... including all the flanges. I'd like to give him my business being he is local and will definitely be the guy servicing them in the future... Or do you think I should be going with big name brands like JE Real, Adams or Woods, since the prices are similar.....?

    If you've got a local guy you can trust, that's always a better choice. Just make sure they're using quality parts.

    My thoughts too, but I don't know any local guys, and didn't have any references. Let me know who the local guy you trust is. That said I got F&R Adam's 1350s for about $1150 and no CA sales tax.

    Just checked my purchase history. I paid 1250 not 1150.

    VIDEO - JL JOURNAL : A BAD VIBE - Tracking Down & Fixing Driveshaft Vibrations

    I had Drive Line and Gear rebuild my old spare rear shaft today. New u joints, shortened it 7”, replace the slip since the splines were twisted and balanced and a new paint job. More than half the price of a new shaft and they did it in about 5 hours with no appointment. I probably won’t ever go anywhere else for driveline work again.

    Now I have a spare front shaft.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
