    Hey guys I am kinda freaking out here... I was using a vice to get the 27mm nuts off the drive shaft and dented the large shaft... I was wondering if this is going to be ok...??! Or am I going to have to now take it to a driveshaft shop and have them re-balance it??! What should I do??? Sorry if it seems like I am freaking out too much, just have no idea what to do.

    Mine is pretty dented in one spot as well, and it works fine (it happens). I'd would say put it back in and see if you get a vibration. You might be alright, worst case scenario you'll have to take it back out and get a re-balance. You won't know until you drive it though. Good luck.

    Problem I have is that I am taking it apart to have it blasted and powder coated so if I put it in then took it back out could they weld on it and still leave the powder coat ok??

    Nope, the heat from welding will melt the powdercoat.

    Just go ahead and get it balanced. Then powder coat it after.

    The problem with this is that the reason it was in the vice was because I was breaking everything down to have it cleaned and powder coated. So the carrier bearings and lobro joint are all removed and disconnected. Rebuilding it was all new parts. I am just going to have to get everything done and slapped back in and pray there is no vibration....
