Orchard Machine in Winfield is gone now. Moved to Nakusp area. Springfield Automotive has a guy that did the ones for my Jeep, and price was good.

go see Hugh Lundee. I haven't been to his shop in awhile, but its down the road ,across Spall from Princess Auto. Its a transmission shop but he does drivshafts. I would say he's the best around. Most dealers use him for shafts & transmissions.
