The axles are machined wrong again and continue to bind in the upright housing.  I’m done and asking for a full refund.  DSS has no idea what they are doing with Datsuns.  Absolutely do not buy the this product. Starting over again.  What a bummer.  Jim

Damn Jim, I hate to hear this and would never have thought that company would drop the ball on so many levels. It worries me as I was strongly considering using their services for custom axle lengths for a Ford 8.8 irs swap. I actually have a set of custom 280zx turbo cv axles that I bought off of another member years ago. According to him they were supposed to be rated to 900hp capable. I have not used them as the build project is at a snails pace and I am now committed to the Ford 8.8 irs swap. I certainly hope you have no problems with a full refund.

Jim I am offering again.  Should we send them an upright and all the stuff you have back?  It would be a shame to give up at this point.  It is below 20 here and I am not working on the car so we can spare the parts for a little while.  Richard.

Thanks so much Richard.  It’s worth a try I guess. I will contact DSS and see if they have any interest in making this right.  If they do, I’ll contact you with the information.   Again, thanks for going above and beyond to help me out.  Jim

I don't know Joe personally but I would for sure give him a chance. He is all about the datsun community...Whitehead is OK but I mentioned before that I had problems waiting 8 months for my stub axles from them. They just kept giving me excuses every week.

UPDATE:  DSS is asking for the stub axles back again for one more try.  Sending them back today.  As frustrating as this has been, I will at least give DSS credit for repeatedly trying to make it right.  Side note:  the CV axles appear to be too short as well........ With all of the drama surrounding this conversion I measured every single part  yesterday and the axle bar is 1 inch too short.  DSS asked me to bolt up the stubs when they arrive and take measurements...... They will replace the axle bar once they know the stubs fit properly.  Just another step to take the half shaft cv axles back apart and send them back for correction.   As long as I'm back racing by march-april I'm good to go.  Thanks to the community and vendors that have reached out in private  and forum for all the help and support.  Jim

Well it finally all fits!  Car is back together and waiting for a performance alignment with new TTT LCA's.  It took DSS 4 attempts to get the stub axles machined to OEM spec but they finally got it done. Personally, I would use checkered flag racing if I did it again, but I will give Lee at DSS a lot of credit for contuniually working to find a fix.   Hopefully DSS will now have the proper specs for future buyers to avoid all the hassles I went through.     Jim
