COLORADO DRIVE SHAFT
5350 Broadway ST. - Denver, CO. 80216
Contact us if you are in need of a Volvo rear drive shaft for a 1998 & newer 40, 50, 60, 70, XC70, 80 or XC90 series. After remanufacturing these shafts for over ten years now, we have found them to be very critical. It is a must that the center part of the shaft be serviced as well as both constant velocity ends. There are shops that will just service the ends but in short time the shaft will experience vibration / noise problems again. With our high speed balancer we are able to precisionally balance all units to give you that smooth ride again. Tell us your model and year to see if it is in stock. We can usually ship in the Continental United States starting at $410.00 exchange (1998-99 models) plus tax if applicable, which also includes a pre-paid UPS label to return the old shaft to us! This price does not include a $100.00 core deposit, you will get this deposit back when you send your old complete drive shaft back to us. All drive shafts carry a one year warranty, buy with confidence!
**To order call (303) 297-2928 or e-mail ship to name and address firstname.lastname@example.org
*For our Canadian friends:
If you are only needing an end replacement, contact us as well.
***If you are in need of the retaining hardware for the rear drive shaft, call your local bolt and nut supplier and ask
for the following: M8X1.25 metric socket cap bolts, 40mm in length, 12.9 strength, 12 are needed to mount the rear drive shaft,
Do not tighten bolts over 35 foot lbs. We now have the "tie washers" the factory gave you, contact us .
This hardware works on the late 98 (last 6 of VIN# higher than 465400) and all models up through 2007.***
Early 98 (last of VIN# lower than 465400) drive shaft bolts are M8X1.25 50mm length.

Rear driveshaft, 2004 xc70. November 16, 2015

The customer service was excellent, the process was very straight forward, and had great shipping time. I live in Northern Ontario, Canada, and even with the exchange rate it was still about $400. cheaper than new. There were no additional charges for importing, and the $100. swap out for the old shaft was quick once they received my old one. As a bonus I put a couple of newspapers from my town in the box just to give them an idea of what's going on where I live. Hope they enjoyed them. Highly recommend them!

Just an update that the shaft arrived yesterday, and I'll be installing it tonight.
Thank you VERY much for the excellent customer service, and for directing me to Mailbox International as Mark also provided top notch service and I really couldn't be happier.
Editors note: Mailbox International also known as We Ship It, is an excellent way to ship our shafts Internationally, look them up on the web: www.weship.com
I recently ordered and received from you a rear drive shaft for my 2000 Volvo V70 XC.
I'm extremely happy to report that the shaft is in place and performing just as it should.
I'm even happier to report that you guys saved me over $700 on just the cost of the shaft alone.
Just wanted to thank you guys for the great product I recently purchased from you for my 04 volvo. It got here just in time for me to bolt it in and have my 4 wheel drive back before New York was slammed with snow storm after snow storm. I am very pleased with your product and have put over 2000 noise and vibration free miles on my Volvo since installing it. Thanks again Colorado Drive Shaft I will be sure to pass your name on to others who can use your service.
