At this point, I would not blame an outfit that has been doing driveline repairs since the early 1950s, in Wisconsin, no less.

Remember, there are a bunch of smart Germans in Wisconsin who not only make fine cheese and sausage, but have been running successful businesses dealing with mechanical systems. Briggs & Stratton, Kohler and Allen-Bradley come to mind.

And, while I believe Bruno is probably a fine fellow, I would speak to the Green Bay outfit and ask them what happened to the failed shaft before discounting them offhand.

Good points... There certainly is a price difference between the two. I'm just looking for the best fix as I don't relish the idea of another drive shaft explosion on a major trip. Really sucks I can tell you.
