Central Coast Driveline

Villa Automotive drive line shopVilla Automodive drive way

Complete Drive Line Service for All Cars, Trucks, Recreational Foreign, Domestic Vehicles and 4 x 4 Trucks and Jeeps. Custom, New Units and Rebuilt drivelines, new end yokes, U-joints, existing shafts shortened, lengthened.

We specialize in high speed balancing of the final assembled drivelines. If you shaft is not balanced with the actual end yoke and U-joints you have not fixed potential vibration problems. Our shop features the latest in driveline manufacturing and AXILINE balancing equipment.

A driveshaft will not run smooth and vibration-free unless it is straight and in balance. Our shafts are, after assembly and before welding, pre-straighten to the above specifications. We then dynamically high speed balance the entire shaft assembly at the speed representative of the speed the shaft will encounter in its normal application.

We also specialize in high speed service, all rebuilt drivelines leave our shop within 24 hours after being received. You ship your unit to us UPS pre-paid and we pay the freight back to you anywhere in the US!


We stock a complete line of high quality drive line components from the following vendor:

  • Neapco

To determine replacement driveshaft by application you will need to know:

  • Make, model and year of vehicle
  • Manual or Automatic transmission, with or without overdrive
  • 3,4, or 5 speed transmission
  • Make and model of transfer case
  • Engine size and type (diesel or gasoline - 4, 6, or 8 cylinder)
  • Axle ratio
  • Series of drive shaft
  • Wheel base of vehicle
  • Location of Driveshaft (front or rear)
