Eastern Members - Driveshaft balancing NEPA
07-09-2012, 01:36 PM
Are there any places in northeastern PA to get a driveshaft checked and balanced? I'm not even sure if it needs it, but it would eliminate one more avenue in troubleshooting in regards to a vibration the car is suffering from.

I am about 45 minutes north of Scranton. If anyone can point me to somewhere semi-local, thanks!

i used Collis years ago. i seem to remember them doing a good job for a good price. i think most of the time you are better off buying a new driveshaft but they will balance a driveshaft for you if you are on a budget

It's not in the region you have specified, but I got my LPE 3.5" aluminum drive shaft balanced at Mapco in Sunbury, PA.

After reading the thread about your issue, I have a suggestion. This may sound odd, but I've seen it make a big difference with a driveshaft vibration. Unbolt the driveshaft at the rear and rotate it 180 degrees and bolt it back up. Essentially flipping the u-joint over.
