Nice axle shafts--excellent service

Echoing other comments here. Very nice quality parts. Despite being in the USA, shipping happens very quickly after ordering and parts in hand a few days later.

Early rear half shafts

Mine had worn, a quick email and quick reply ensured I had ordered the correct ones. Very quick courier delivery and emails to update me. Packaging would survive a nuclear strike so arrived in perfect condition. The shafts and matching drive members are very well engineered and look high quality.

High Quality axles!

I was going to rave about the quality, which is first rate, however I live in Texas and ordered these from the website on Wednesday evening. Ashcroft shipped them the next morning and I had them in my hands by noon the following Sunday! I cannot say enough about both the quality and the service. Well done!
