took some ford axles to be drilled to GM bolt pattern, they kept them three weeks, and then told me they couldn't do the job. Had told me on many occasions that they could.Took them to Sacket machine, only took them a couple of days. Brought them a driveshaft that needed balancing, they quoted 2 day turnaround. They called on fourth day, said they couldn't do it because I had cut and welded the shaft. I understood the liability issue there. However, they took the clips and spring clips out of the rear u-joint, and I didn't notice until I got it home. I live 45 minutes from the shop. I called and left a message about this, and nobody has returned my call...I don't understand how this place is still in business.

Great local family owned company and the only place I'd ever go for driveshaft repair. The staff are true professionals and seem to have a knowledge and expertise that most other shops can't match, so I highly recommend Advance Driveline.
Absolutely awful experience. Went in to have Jeep axles re-geared. They quoted me $1,238. But when I picked it up, the bill was over $1,800. No extra work, no unforeseen problems, no complications with the Jeep. They simply claimed they never quoted me $1,238 and had no idea where that figure came from (of course, they had zero notes from the phone call or a written price estimate). I reluctantly paid their price because I had no choice. I was also told that to get their 1-year/12,000 mile warranty on the work, I'd have to return and have the gear fluid changed after 500 miles. I did so, only to find out this cost another $153. How clever... they only honor their work with a warranty if you pay for it. This "mandatory" follow-up service is included in the price at every other shop in town. So after being bait-and-switch overcharged for the service, then getting squeezed for another $153, the total price was just under $2,000 - equal to the highest estimate I got anywhere. To make things worse, they were also supposed to install a pair of c-gussets on my front axle (small metal bracing to strengthen the C bends for oversized wheels). I asked specifically if they could install this while doing the axle work. He put me on hold for 10 minutes to talk to his technician about it before confirming that it would not be a problem. When I dropped the vehicle off, they again confirmed the c-gussets would be installed. I called the shop 48 hours later, just to be sure they found the c-gusset kit and instructions. AGAIN, they confirmed they had and it would be done. When I picked up the Jeep, they acted like they had no idea what I was talking about. "C-gussets? Who told you we'd install those?"This place is literally the twilight zone. They quote prices then pretend they never said it. They offer to perform services, confirm, then re-confirm, but act as if you never mentioned it 2 days later.The fact that they are still in business is baffling. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
Advance Driveline is the only place I'd take my vehicles for rear end work and drive shaft repairs. They're a family owned and operated company that has been in business here in Central Florida for a long time with a great reputation for their service and expertise, so I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing drive shaft and drive train repairs.
