PostSubject: Integrity not so much!!!!!   Fri Feb 08, 2013 8:13 pm

In the last few months I have made some purchases from other Land Rover owners with great disappointment. It seems now that Land Rovers are getting cheaper to buy nowdays that more and more cheap ass, low life, trailer trash thugs are out selling bullshit parts. I'm sick of getting screwed over by these guys. I just bought two drive shafts from a guy on Dweb that are total junk!!! When I talked to him about the condition of the shafts he said they were in good condition and can be used as is. So I paid $250 dollars for two D2 stock front drive shafts that I was told by the guy that they were in good shape, I'll add he is a Land Rover tech. I recieved the shafts today, both need to be rebuilt. U-joints and double cardan are shot. Sorry Fern!!!

After sending a nice e-mail to the seller he replied back "Sorry" is his reply. What a piece of SHIT!!!!!

Buy parts from someone that has good creditable reputation.

That's the problem with buying online and when I buy online I make sure if I don't know the guy it's local so I can verify the integrity of the part first.

The person in question is Robert Freye on D-web. I thought I was getting a good deal from now on I'll only buy from reliable source like Paul Grant and Randy Williams.

Not to kill a potential sale for Randy, but a Tom Woods is rebuildable with off the shelf stuff, is very good quality to start with and reasonably priced, especially considering their durabaility....
Buying a used D2 Genuine shaft seems to be false economy, IMHO.

I bought a used D2 driveshaft off some guy named Trevor for $50 bucks.Driveshaft was in great shape and makes a great spare.If you ever run into this "Trevor" he is a stand up guy who not only knows his stuff but is always there to help fellow rover owners.

I twisted my front shaft bad wheeling.



I found Adams drive shft in colorado to make and ship me one for $300. With 1310 spicer joints and long spline slip for extra travel.

And I now carry a DI front shaft as a spare with the DII tcase flange on it.

Yea I rarely sell used D2 front shafts nor do I have them rebuilt because of the cost. I have replacement OEM type shafts for $300 and I have a couple of the GBR shafts for $350 and of course TWs at about $400
