Drive Shaft - Building, Balancing, and Repair

Improving Driver Comfort and Reducing Downtime

At GSFA, our ongoing commitment to perfection means we’re always looking for ways to improve driver comfort and reduce downtime. This is why we use the industry-leading Hines DL 500 Dual Plane Multi-Shaft Balancer with Optical Straightener for our drive shaft services. Custom built to our specifications, the low-speed DL 500 delivers fast, accurate, two-plane drive shaft balancing with consistent, repeatable results. Because it spins a driveshaft at lower speeds, this machine minimizes the effects of centrifugal force on part clearances to produce a far more precise measure of true centerline balance. The machine is so accurate it can detect the slightest inconsistencies, allowing us to rebalance and straighten drive shafts and multi-shaft assemblies up to 16’ long to within or better than factory tolerances.

The optical straightener references off the drive shaft’s optical centerline rather than the outer tube diameter, offering a whole new level of precision, accuracy and consistency. As the only shop in the area using this technology, GSFA can help you reduce costly wear and tear to your trucks, minimize downtime and maintenance costs, and improve driver comfort and retention.

“In recent years, it has become more of a challenge to resolve driveline imbalance issues,”  explained Hamler. “I consider Garden Spot Frame & Alignment to have gold  standard service and capabilities, making them one of the top driveline balance facilities in the country, and that is why I recommend GSFA to my customers.”
