Default Sids Dropped Axles

Called to order a dropped axle this,morning. Go an email after giving them a $50 deposit, stating that I would pay shipping both ways on my core axle, and the one they are shipoing. Anyone ever done business with this guy? Can ykou shed some,light on your experience?

Never dealt with him, but he's been around for a long time. Haven't heard anything bad, if that helps at all...

Well, I thought I was ordering an axle from him yesterday. The price is $350. But, by the time I ship him mine,,pay shipping, then pay shipping on the one he has, the axle cost is well over $500. Think Im gonna go another route. Like I told,him, theres too much logistics involved in order to purchase his axle.,Thanks

Have you priced out other high quality dropped axles? That sounds pretty reasonable to me.

Sid does THE nicest dropped axles in the business. I have used several of his axles over the years on several different applications, and they are second to none. He is a genuine hot rodder, hard working dude, a nice guy and running a one man show to boot.

His work is top notch and the recommendations are well deserved.

This axle came from Speedway Motors. Perfect example of why I ONLY use original Henry Ford axles under any car I build. They are extemely lucky they didn't kill anyone with this Chinese garbage.

Look, I know none of us are rich here. There are places where concessions can be made to budget, but major suspension components aren't one of them. Call me crazy, but my life (or someone else's) isn't worth saving a couple bucks...

Woah, sorry for the huge pictures. Maybe that helps get the point across?
